Try This Tidbits

by Jan Meyer

Do a super fast, flat track for 5 to 10 seconds.

Look at your chest mounted altimeter as you flare-out as quickly as you can.

What happens to the altimeter reading?

Use your parachute, regardless of what you think might be happening.

Explain what you observed and why, later in the bar.
