COA: me ...

When you check me in your COA, that means you take inventory of your own body position and mental state.

How do I do this?

Monitor your altitude and body position using the sequence; “altitude, arch, legs, relax.”

a. Altitude (most important)

Check your altitude every five seconds or after a maneuver in freefall such as your practice touches.

b. Arch (hips forward)

Maintain an arched body position throughout your freefall and deployment. Keep your hips pushed forward to help ensure you remain in a stable, face-to-earth position.

c. Legs (check leg position and probably extend them slightly)

Keep your legs in a neutral freefall position, which means you want to point your toes and extend your lower legs so the knees are bent at approximately 45 degrees.

d. Relax (breathe)

Relax your arms and upper body, keep your head up looking towards the ground at about 45 degrees ahead and below, and breath slowly.
