Description

PLA is a device that assists jumpers in developing the visual skill of determining when to initiate the flare sequence during day or night. PLA is a laser based sensor that gives the jumper an audible warning tone at the preselected altitude to begin the two-stage flare process and has the ability to data log the entire landing sequence in a graph format, allowing instructors and jumpers to critique their landings and make height adjustments as needed. PLA is customizable and has a software GUI which allows for adjustment for alarm altitudes to correspond to various parachute types, sizes, and loads. It has a ""smart landing logic"" with a descent algorithm to adjust flare height to airspeed, turbulence, or flight mode changes.
