Leaving the failure to hook-in the passenger and any penalties/punishments because of it aside, the pilot did do a pretty good job of dealing with the total panic situation. Maintaining control of a tandem wing with one hand while hanging on to the passenger with the other may be a bit more difficult than some people might think, especially with the adverse control input caused by the weight and drag of the passenger hanging from the control bar. There is really no way to tell how any of us would have dealt with being in that situation.Flyking wrote: ↑Sat Dec 01, 2018 4:37 pmThe number 1 rule in Hang Gliding at launch is Hook In. This guy needs to loose his Tandem rating for life I would of attempted a uphill downwind landing or a tree landing. This guy was an idiot to make you hang that long 98 % of people could not hang that long. You are a amazing Bro.
