Hi all In short: I have 35 jumps and have an amazing offer for a main canopy, a Silhouette 170 (Wingload would be 1:09 / exit weight is 180lbs) My question: Is the wingload to high for my level? Any thoughts? Silhoutte suggests to be at least advanced for the 170, which I'm not yet, but this offer from a friend of mine comes with a full rig (Mirage G4 container, aad, reserve) for only 2k USD. It's hard to say no... Obviously I need to make a decision in the end, but given that I'm very accurate and comfortable with my landings, when do you think can I jump a 170? Is it worth buying this early? Thanks for your advise!! Marc:)
Yes, my wing load is 1.0 which corresponds to 1 lbs / 1 sq/ft, so? What's up next? I mean how does this affect my undercanopy flight? Does this mean I fly 1 meter forward, 1 meter down? If not how can I calculate this? What's my airspeed? (What's my ground speed with stillness (0 knots)) Am I missing the point here? Literally any response will be helpful
