    probally depends on altitude, but usually is it 1,2,3?, and where is this altimeter located and is it easy to read while falling

    when i went, you pull at around 5,000ft on altimeter. If you think you could endlessly float around on wind currents that is lols, though i guess its possible you could float pretty far if you pulled your chute very high in the atmosphere, i think you might have trouble breathing up that high for a period of time (broscience).

    edit: altimeter is strapped on your hand/thumb, it is easy to read, just because your falling from the sky doesn't mean your eyes don't work ;D

    if u keep ur feet flat instead of pointed str8 down like a f@g0t the aero dynamics will cause the majority wind resistance to bypass your face.

    I don't remember wearing goggles but it is possible I did. I just remember sight wasn't an issue, it is a really fun experience. (I have only jumped one time and it was a tandem jump (someone on my back))

    exit plane, bang out arms and legs, arch back to get into a stable position.

    one one thousand, two one thousand, three one thousand, deploy chute, look up, check canopy.

    Strong ancient terminology OP.


    There's no such thing as a "rip cord" in a modern rig. Modern rigs use pilot chutes.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pilot_chute

    You grab the pilot chute and throw it up behind you as hard as you can, then it opens up and the drag pulls out the main canopy.

    As for when to open, you open at a particular altitude (you have an altimeter on your wrist). If you don't open by 750ft reserve canopy will open by itself (AAD) but you'll be in for a pretty hard landing (probably break both legs but not die)

    yes it is possible to float far if you deploy at high altitude. The Military do it, its called HAHO (High Altitude High Opening) They typically deploy at around 35k, 20-30 miles from the DZ, depending on the wind current

    so I've read anyway

    I dunno how long a descent takes, but put it this way, they could land ontop of your car if they wanted to.
