1 JOINT SERVICE PARACHUTE CENTRE NETHERAVON

2 CANOPY CONTROL

3 To teach you how to achieve a SAFE controlled descent and landing The Aim

4 Ram Air Parachute System (RAPS)

5 Ram Air Parachute Characteristics Highly manoeuvrable Rectangular in shape Forward speed of mph (depending on body weight) Turns quickly Can glide long distances

6

7 How the Canopy Works Aerofoil shape - wing design Open cell front allows air to be rammed in Produces a Semi-rigid wing Low & high pressure create lift

8 Ram Air Parachute - Modes of Flight Toggle Full Drive Full Drive Full Brakes Toggle Half Brakes Half Brakes Toggle

9 How The Canopy Turns Toggles are attached to steering lines Steering lines are attached to the tail

10

11 Full Depression Turns Rapid loss of height Dangerous close to ground Continuous turns cause fast spirals

12 Warning Don,t spiral below 1500ft

13 Any Questions?

14 Wind Drift Indicator Length & weight Thrown from 2500ft Simulates a student canopy J/M can determine the correct opening point

19 ANY QUESTIONS?

20 Flight Drills 1. Check canopy 2. Pump brakes twice 3. All round observation

21 LOOK UPAROUNDDOWN

22 4. Locate the DZ Not necessarily over the DZ Depends on wind speed Use reference points to locate DZ Move to holding area

26 HOLDING AREA

27 5. Assess Drift Over holding / play area Hold into wind Assess the wind strength

28 ANY QUESTIONS?

29 Flight Drills 1. Check canopy 2. Pump brakes twice 3. All round observation 4. Locate the DZ (move to holding area) 5. Assess wind

30 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

31 During Your Flight Always Remember :- All round observation Altitude awareness Location of the PLA

32 The Landing Pattern

33 LANDING PATTERN (left-hand circuit) Play Area (up wind)

34 LANDING PATTERN (left-hand circuit) Play Area (up wind) Downwind Leg 1000ft _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

35 LANDING PATTERN (left-hand circuit) Downwind Leg 1000ft _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Play Area (up wind) Base Leg 500ft _ _ _ _

41 Landings Smooth flare from full flight (10 ft, sec's from the ground)

42 If you flare too high - keep the toggles depressed & adopt the PLF positionIf you flare too high - keep the toggles depressed & adopt the PLF position If you flare too low - flare quickly & PLFIf you flare too low - flare quickly & PLF

43 ANY QUESTIONS?

44 Flight Drills 1. Check canopy 2. Pump brakes twice 3. All round observation 4. Locate the DZ (move to holding area) 5. Assess drift

45 Experiment

46 The Landing Pattern

47 Turbulence Causes:thermals wind deflected over buildings Effects: canopy buffeting Cure: fly on third brakes until through turbulence

48 Common Problems (Nuisance Factors)

49 Toggle Released Prematurely Release other toggle and carry on with flight drills

50 SLIDER UP PUMP TOGGLES TWICE

51 END CELL, CLOSURE & SLIDER UP PUMP TOGGLES

52 TWISTS CHECK CANOPY KICK OUT OF TWISTS GRASP TOGGLES

53 ANY QUESTIONS ?

54 1.Show the Common problems video 2.Look forward to flight two 3.Then give the hand- out out!
