    Silhouette

    I bought this as my first canopy after about 60 jumps. My very first opening had line twists and I entered a dive; the canopy quickly returned to normal flight, allowing me time to kick out of the twists. All other openings have been soft and on heading. It responds quickly to toggle inputs and is a blast to fly. Front risers inputs are what you'd expect from a big canopy. The glide ratio is great if you have to cover a lot of ground. I fly in Denver and even on hot, no wind days I'm able to get enough flare to land nicely. I'm loaded at 1:1.

    Mile-Hi Skydiving Center

    I'm currently working on my A license at Mile-Hi. The AFF instructors were great and the coaches have been fantastic. The canopy course is especially helpful. The experienced jumpers I've met will take time to help or answer questions. It gets VERY busy on the weekends, so I recommend getting there as soon as they open if you want to get in more than one jump. During peak hours, it can be tough to get a rental rig. I would guess owning your own chute makes more jumps possible. The view during free fall can't be beat!
