    Reserve Side Instructor Ride Through on AFF

    Riddle me this, I've had this conversation with a few other AFF instructors and we came to the same conclusion. Why is it protocol for Reserve side instructor to ride through the deployment vs. main side? The only way I see how this makes any sense is if theres nothing out going through the hard deck, in which case the student and main side Instructor have already failed to do their job. If theres anything out, something is gonna have to happen on the right side ( I.e. pull the bag off or the cutaway handle) prior to the Reserve coming out. Seems like a job better suited for the Main side instructor vs. the Reserve side trying to reach underneath to handle shit. Or am I just crazy?!
