Description

Cutaway #1. Double malfunction There were a number of things I could have done to prevent this skydiving emergency. On good note, I deployed higher then normal on this jump... New WingSuit so i wanted the extra time in case something happens.... Since this was my first time in this model wingsuit, I deployed higher on this jump then my past jumps. A number of things I could have done would have helped. 1. Check Alt - I stopped checking my alt when I started spinning on my back. 2. I have kicked out of Line twists before in a Wingsuit, however on this jump when I started spinning on my back the G force was building higher and higher so I cut away. 3. My RSL is disconnected for Wingsuit flight, We do this in case we need to cutaway. After A cutaway you should get stable BEFORE deploying your reseve. I did not do this, I deployed my reseve way to fast after the cutway. This is mostly why my reseve opened up with line twist. However I was sill above 2k when I cutaway. I had a lot of time to get stable. If your lower... the story is different. 4. In the heat of the moment I never freed my arms from the wings to help me fight the line twists. I dont know why I didn't do this, In the past I have always freed up my arms up asap. On this jump I never did this... Not sure why.
