FLB FFC - Benny Benard, Detlef van der Hoeven & Robin Awater



Name:
Detlef van der Hoeven

Place:
Seppe, NL(9000 ft exit)

Suit:
PF Acro

Debrief:
Nice stable exit, but watch your heading. Where you look is where you go. Instead of fighting to correct a turn. Simply pick a heading, arch a bit and relax.
Though it cost a bit of altitude, nice recovery and good flying after.
Though the general body position was very arched, a FFC is not about performance. Its about safety. And the important safety aspect you need to be able to perform (exit, navigate, practice deployments, deploy) you performed well.
On the practice pulls, arch more. A lot more. Your legs are up, but the flat, even slightly de-arched body position keeps a lot of forward momentum as well as causing some mild wobbling/instability. And be a bit slower/relaxed. Slow is smooth, smooth is fast. The second practice pull was a bit better in terms of relaxing.
Be a bit more visable with the wave-off, but good job taking a few seconds to speed up before deployment.
Again, arch a bit more on your actual deployment. But nice stable opening.

Conclusion:
Two thumbs up!

Name:
Robin Awater

Place:
Seppe, NL (9000 ft exit)

Suit:
PF Acro

Debrief:
Nice exit. took a few seconds to find the right body position. Good job on navigation (not making a full 90 degree turn to carve around the cloud.
On the dummy pulls, make sure you arch at the hip as well. Though you do slow down a bit, the flat body position still has you carry a lot of forward speed into your opening. Arching more will make sure you have nice deployments.

Wave of was there, but could be a bit stronger so everyone sees your intention to open.
Mind the pull, and make a good strong throw when you do. The pilot is just let go here, and thus catches a bit of burble before finaly inflating.

Conclusion:

Good jump (especially given the minimum altitude we had available). And compliments on removing the GoPro from its housing on those first jumps, avoiding distraction.
