pilot chute folding for IAD jump

Recommended Posts

Fold an IAD pilot-chute pretty much the same way as you would for freefall, just leave the bridle outside of the fabric.

In other news, I always wrap two or three fingers around the pilot-chute adn the rest of my fingers around the lower lateral strap on the student's harness. This allows me to sense and control them while I am checking the spot, etc.

The other major point - of IAD - is always releasing the pilot-chute well below the horizontal tail of your airplane. With Cessnas, the simplest way to develop the habit of tossing the pilot-chute below the door sill ... every time.
