The NZ International Airshow organiser asked me to come up with a stunt for the show. What could be more fun than doing a static line jump with the Red Bull Wigwam event tent, from a helicopter?
By wearing two harnesses, I could jump the tent, fly it for 30 seconds, release it, fall away & still have my full skydive rig to land with my normal, square parachute.
What fun to get in the heli, climb away to 2000' overhead where I throw a drifter (a roll of newspaper with a 10' tail of crepe paper) to assess wind drift. Important when jumping a tent.
