Jumper arrived at an airshow and offered to jump as part of the event. The jumper was jumping a brand new wingsuit and her BASE gear (single canopy) She jumped from a powered parachute at 4000 feet and planned on pulling at 1500 feet. She experienced issues at pull time and ended up tilting head down. She was able to eventually pull her pilot chute from the leg pouch but at too low of an altitude for the canopy to inflate prior to hitting the ground at a high rate of speed.
