VS 384 solo, low EW

Recommended Posts


What's "EW"?

Not much John, what's ew with you?

But seriously folks, I'm not sure what the EW designation is, although the obvious guess is that the suspended weight is meant. Is the VS 384 just a military EZ 384 from RWS / UPT? I'm not familiar with it.

Tandem canopies of various types do get solo jumps from time to time. New tandem instructors have to do one, and some places might do a so called line stretch jump on a new canopy. Has anyone ever had problems? I might avoid flying at ultra low wing loading in turbulent weather, but that's about all.
