Question -

When learning how to pack a parachute the instructor referred to the parachute's stabilizers - what are these?

Thanks

Hey Blush,

I read your post & remembered seeing a picture somewhere that really helped me figure out what the different parts of the canopy was.... so I thought I'd go find it for ya, I put it on the following link.

Sorry Merrick. That's a dead link. You'd better try again.

That's better. Smile I'm sure geocities doesn't hate you. A strong dislike maybe but hatred is a pretty strong term.
