When performing individual jumps for accuracy of landing, the skydiver must:
to conduct a rigorous analytical calculation of the separation point, control points, monitoring them on the ground by stopwatch and altimeter;
tune in and mentally imagine the whole jump, given the height of the parachute, the direction and strength of the wind along the heights, as well as the approach to the target; Continue reading
Does the wingsuit fly or only reduces vertical speed due to aerodynamic drag? It really flies, because just its area is not enough for such a decrease in vertical speed and smooth planning.
But only gravity allows flying wingsuit. The vertical fall caused by the force of gravity of the wingsuit turns into horizontal (as far as possible) flight. The same principles underlie gliders, hang gliders and wing parachutes. Continue reading
