Reserve Parachutes – HANDS ON!
Saturday 3/2/2019, 1p – 3:30p, meet at the LZ picnic bench at Ed Levin
Ever wonder what the lifesaver under your seat looks like? Learn about the various types of reserves and meet your fellow pilots! We’ll have a Rogallo, Round, and Square reserve opened up so you can see what they look like and how they work, and discuss the benefits and drawbacks of each. A limited number of people can get individual instruction on strategies for doing a repack on a round (pulled down apex) and square reserve.
