After some very popular videos came online of reserve deployment and crashes, we decided people really needed to know what to do if they ever had to use their reserve. Many people flying with reserves are not properly trained with them, they know they need to throw it off to the side but that’s about as far as it goes. I know that I’ve witnessed a few training classes that never bring up the steps needed for a successful reserve deployment, and what to do after. Those that have attended Team Fly Halo powered paragliding training already know what to do but this video makes for a good reference if you need a refresher!
Thanks to our lead flight instructor Shane Denherder and Chris Santacroce for putting this together.
