Skydive Student Has Seizure In Freefall, Instructo...

A skydive student has a seizure in freefall while doing his AFF Level 5. The seizure begins at 9,000 feet, the instructor deploys the student’s canopy at 4,000 feet, then the student regains consciousness at 3,000 feet and lands safely. Scary stuff. It’s rare that a skydiving video fit for our Friday Freakout series gets... Watch Video »

Yes, this AFF student spins out of control. And yes, he pulls his reserve at 9,000 feet. But in his defense, the instructor unexpectedly induced the spin after telling the student to pull his reserve if he got separated for any reason (according to the videographer). Not. Cool. Watch Video »
Freelying AFF Student On Jump #4?

Freelying AFF Student On Jump #4?

This isn’t your typical AFF. A student who can freefly on jumps 1 through 4 is pretty impressive… but of course it helps if you’re a tunnel instructor before you start AFF. Watch Video »

All students are taught to arch. ARCH! Yet, from time to time, this doesn’t work so well. This skydiving student ends up on his back, spinning like a top. Fun times. How well did your AFF Level 3 go? Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: AFF Student Spins Like A Top

Friday Freakout: AFF Student Spins Like A Top

As students, we’re all taught to arch, ARch, ARCH! Unfortunately that doesn’t work so well for this guy. He ends up on his back, spinning like a top. Or maybe he just couldn’t wait to start back flying. After all, it was his fourth jump (AFF Level 4). How did you fourth jump go? Watch Video »
Skydiving Student Hits Plane... JUST LET GO!

Skydiving Student Hits Plane... JUST LET GO!

This skydiving student is fine, just a minor bruise to his ego. In the wise words of Tyler Durden from Fight Club… “JUST LET GO!” Watch Video »

Well this makes for one hell of an exciting AFF Level 2 jump, and serves as a friendly reminder that ANY camera on your helmet can be a snag hazard, not just a GoPro. In this case, the student’s pilot chute wraps around her instructor’s “traditional” camera as she deploys. Luckily she notices what’s going... Watch Video »

The only thing worse than losing a shoe in freefall is packing a shoe in your parachute (yup, true story). Have you ever lost a shoe (or anything else) in the sky? Watch Video »

Panic Mode: Student Skydiver Can't Open Parachute

Ohhh, that awkward moment as a skydiving student when you can’t find your handle, then go straight into panic mode. Did you ever have a moment of panic as a skydiving student? Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: AFF Student Spin Cycle

I can’t say that I’ve ever seen an AFF student grab their own foot in freefall, but now I can honestly say that I’ve seen everythingn. #SpinCycle Watch Video »

A bridle wrapped around a student’s foot certainly isn’t an ideal deployment, but it beats having the bridle wrapped around the neck like this other AFF student. Watch Video »

Nothing makes you shit the proverbial bed than when you’re an AFF student running out of altitude and you deploy your parachute while spinning on your back / head down. Great job by the student on getting his parachute out despite the situation. As they say: never sacrifice altitude for stability. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Panic Mode - AFF Level 6

If the goal of this AFF jump was to panic and not arch at all, then I consider it a huge success! Watch Video »

At the bottom end of Geoff’s Level 1 AFF jump, he deploys his main and has a bag lock. Watch the video to see how the situation gets handled by the instructor on his reserve side. According to Geoff, the fun wasn’t over once the video ends. The reserve deployment released the bag lock, giving... Watch Video »

We can all agree skydiving is a bloody good time, but this is a bit too much. Spin spin spin, spin stop, bloody mess. That about sums up this gem. I’m not sure if this instructor broke his nose, but with the amount of blood squirting from it, it sure looks like he did. If... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Skydiving Student's Low, Low, LOW...

Maintaining altitude awareness is a good thing. Having an instructor that saves your ass is even better, especially when you’re flopping around on your back and then you freeze at pull time, like deer in the headlights. Before watching the very last second of this video, take a guess at his deployment altitude. Watch Video »
