Default Night Skydiving



The past weekend we made a few jumps in the night. Like very late and very dark. We did not gear up for this and only mounted a headlite to the jumper. Now it looks like this can be great fun.
So, who has done this and what sort of lighting did you use and what was the effects.

I was thinking of getting a jumpsuit just for night-diving. Rig the suit full of lights and in the helmet to shine into the chute.

And of course spot landing at the lighted DZ.

There's a willing drop-pilot at every club with some good eye sight.[8D]
Big thank you to JdB for taking the risk of flying at night
