I have been testing the SonoAlti for 7 months and I love the ease in which you can set and change alarms. It helped my freefall and canopy altitude awareness tremendously.

French speaking jumpers ... look out for a review of our altimeters in an upcoming issue of Paramag. They just sent us a sample of their magazine and they look beautiful. Merci bien!

This video gives just a glimpse of why you shouldn't track or fly your canopy up jump run. Adaquate exit separation helps in these situations as well, but it can only go so far (literally). Bottom line: People could be falling down above you if you are flying along the path of a jump plane, regardless of whether you are under canopy or in freefall. USPA recommends at least 1,000 ft of separation between groups. #jumpsafe

This speed graph shows the low-speed fall rate of two jumpers in tandem, each of weighing about 140 lbs going out at around 13k. Team floaty! The jumpers' speed decreases as the air thickens. This graph was recorded today by our ColorAlti peripheral vision LED altimeter.

Did your audible not reset to the correct altitude when you just drove to the DZ? SonoAlti’s software automatically adjusts to local elevation in less than a minute.
