Slow Flight

Like slow food, there seems to be a movement afoot to promote smarter canopy piloting. Here’s Exhibit A, an awesome video of badass Euro flyer Luciano Bacque landing his Spectre:

DirtBag Swooper Dave Lund and some buddies have a project cooking along the same lines, to show all the things what an “everyday” canopy can do – it’s not just the Comp Velos that can rip it up. “The sport is rebounding against the lack of instruction and too aggressive canopy choices for jumpers. It is a good thing, although we as the sport are transitioning slowly, I think that we’re all headed for a better sport with less dead friends from flying their canopy into the ground.” Watch for the Everyday Canopy Project here and over at the PD Blog later this season.
