There are old pilots...

I wonder what the stats are? Airspeed, vertical descent per min., etc. And why does he open his chute so high? I would have thought he could have waited until about 1000ft before opening.

I think his airspeed was somewhere around 80 mph.

That's scary with no protection in front of you except a face mask! And the way he shot over his friend on the ground! Whew!!

Ok my question is, how did he know he would make it the first time he tried it? How do you work up to that?

That flying squirrel suit seems kind of dangerous. Not much more than controlled falling!
