To teach you how to achieve a SAFE controlledThe Aim To teach you how to achieve a SAFE controlled descent and landing
Ram Air Parachute System (RAPS)
Ram Air Parachute CharacteristicsHighly manoeuvrable Rectangular in shape Forward speed of mph (depending on body weight) Turns quickly Can glide long distances
How the Canopy Works Aerofoil shape - wing designOpen cell front allows air to be rammed in Produces a Semi-rigid wing Low & high pressure create lift
Ram Air Parachute - Modes of FlightToggle Toggle Toggle Full Drive Half Brakes Full Brakes
How The Canopy Turns Toggles are attached to steering linesSteering lines are attached to the tail
Dangerous close to ground Continuous turns cause fast spiralsFull Depression Turns Rapid loss of height Dangerous close to ground Continuous turns cause fast spirals
Warning Don,t spiral below 1500ft

Flight Drills 1. Check canopy 2. Pump brakes twice3. All round observation
LOOK UP AROUND DOWN
Not necessarily over the DZ Use reference points to locate DZ4. Locate the DZ Not necessarily over the DZ Depends on wind speed Use reference points to locate DZ Move to holding area
Over holding / play area5. Assess Drift Over holding / play area Hold into wind Assess the wind strength
4. Locate the DZ (move to holding area)Flight Drills 1. Check canopy 2. Pump brakes twice 3. All round observation 4. Locate the DZ (move to holding area) 5. Assess wind
Experiment If the wind conditions are not too strong, carry out the following exercises (over DZ) 360 left turn 360° right turn 3 practice flares
During Your Flight All round observation Altitude awarenessAlways Remember:- All round observation Altitude awareness Location of the PLA

(10 ft, 2 - 3 sec's from the ground)Landings Smooth flare from full flight (10 ft, sec's from the ground)
If you flare too high - keep the toggles depressed & adopt the PLF positionIf you flare too low - flare quickly & PLF
4. Locate the DZ (move to holding area)Flight Drills 1. Check canopy 2. Pump brakes twice 3. All round observation 4. Locate the DZ (move to holding area) 5. Assess drift
The Landing Pattern
Turbulence Causes: thermals wind deflected over buildings Effects:canopy buffeting Cure: fly on third brakes until through turbulence
Common Problems (Nuisance Factors)

THEORY OF FLIGHT AND CANOPY CONTROL MS-360/TR-375.
Microlight flights lessons Exercise Circuits.
Take-off and the circuit. Take-off Take-off is the phase of flight in which an aircraft goes through a transition from moving along the ground (taxiing)
Just fly until 500’ AGL (700’ MSL) Then turn crosswind
