1-29 round

30-150 mostly 220 accurance

75 - 135 square

90 - 120 ellipse

107 - 120 crossbraced

180 - hard injured by 220.

240 - mostly 115 crossbraced, jumps + ground launches

800 - mostly 89 crossbraced

I was really afraid of soft parachutes with low wingload.

I realise my progression may seem overly conservative to a lot of people but this, conversely, seems a bit aggressive for my liking. I’ve never quite been on a 1.6 W/L but I certainly wouldn’t have trusted myself there at 250 jumps. Still, if you have a good coach and focus exclusively on canopy then maybe it’s not an issue.
