The comprehensive free-fall skydiver model by [http://www.flightgear.org/tours/sky-diving-visualization/ Creare] is now included in the Aircraft hangar. In addition a ram-air parachute flight-dynamics model was added. This means the model has two separate Flight Dynamics configurations in one package which are both active when the parachute is deployed. With this combination you can now start a free fall decent at 12,500 foot, manoeuvre your way down to about 2,000-2,500 foot, deploy the parachute with the 'D' key and then glide your way down. At about 50 foot pull '''down''' full to slow down the decent and gently touch the ground. A possible next step which has been suggested is to include the [[http://wiki.flightgear.org/Walk_view|Walker] Walker] model.
