With that body position in the door did we expect anything other than a fully unstable exit?
NOT an AAD fire. Student saved herself by executing her EPs at about 6500 ft AGL. While one could argue that EPs weren't the preferred solution... the student saved herself. I won't comment on the instructor getting low because I know what it is like to have a small student spin and helicopter (slow fall). Lots of mistakes by both parties... but the student saved herself and survived. That meets the definition of a good jump.

Not the AAD, looks she pulled the cutaway and ripcord on her own.
ahh this brings back memories of consoles 1 to 5...
