Jumplog 5 : 06MAY2018 | AFF (Recurrency)

Perfect day to get back out in the sky for some freefall fun.

Perfect day to get back out in the sky. Thanks to my skydiving friends and community pushing me to get back out there.

Had a relaxing flight to altitude, an awesome freefall, and  a beautiful canopy flight over Colorado (We won’t talk about the landing).

LOL, instructors end log comment, “Falls Fast“.

TO ALTITUDE: Super relaxed, the most relaxed I have ever been. Made several 3 point checks (deployment, cutaway, and reserve).  Checked in with instructor at 2.5, 5.5, 6 and 10.5.
-At door: Solid check in, out and count
-Freefall: COA good, arch more (shake from reserve), check left, check right. Practice pulls good, but need to maintain good position. Turn 1 (10K), Turn 2 (9K), Turn 3 (8K), Freefall until deployment @ 5.5
-Deployment: Locked in @ 6K, waved off @ 5.6. More arch needed at deployment for stable pull (maintain COA, lurched forward)
