Super moon night jumps at Skydive Santa Barbara! Five ColorAltis lit up the night's sky like fireflies and five SonoAltis chirped away like crickets on steroids.
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.
