Accelerated Freefall Spin

66

Discovering how to freefall can be an intimidating experience especially if the one schooling you is your ranking officer. This first time accelerated freefall student overlooks the basics and slips into a wild spin. Thankfully for him, his senior officer was there to get him out of a terrifying predicament.

teaching people how to free fall looks VERY challenging! Great post @a_life_in_freefall・・・When you have a student with warrants and child support they can’t pay they are prone to freefall like this. #militaryfreefall #militaryfreefalljumpmaster #militaryfreefallschool #militaryfreefallinstructor #military #skydive #skydiving #c27 #army #nationalguard #specialforces #greenberet #ranger #desert #dyingcockroachposition #jesussaveme #whitegloves #socom #usasoc #videodet @military_freefall_association

It almost seems that the instructor enjoyed his miseries to some degree by allowing him to roll for a while before saving him. It’s more likely though that the instructor was hoping that the student would figure it out himself. However, all’s well once the instructor levels him out for the second time.

This technique of coaching is called accelerated freefall training. It’s the quickest way for a student to learn how to skydive.
