Audible Offset

Recommended Posts

Was a little surprised this weekend during a 4 way mixed head-up head-down jump at when the head down guys seemed to shoot off early before break off. Of course on the ground it turns out they were wondering why the hell us sit flyers were hanging about so long.

I think everybody was using L&B altis, so its seems the lag of 2-3 seconds was just due to the orientation and burble. Is this a known thing?

Yeah, fairly known, if you read an AAD manual, they'll warn you against that.
Since audibles and altimeters are based on the same type of sensor (although I'd expect to be less reliable than an AAD, for obvious reasons), I'd expect them to be affected by changes in wind speed (i.e. dynamic pressure) just as well.
I'm standing on the edge
With a vision in my head
My body screams release me
My dreams they must be fed... You're in flight.
