    Description: The deceased was taking part in a 3-day canopy course with a world-renowed canopy pilot and instructor in preparation for a swooping competition to take place at the dropzone that weekend. A headwind, crosswind and downwind landing are required to qualify for the advanced class, but due to the wind conditions, the downwind landing was not required but the deceased elected to perform it anyway. She wore 14kg of weight, more than she ever had before. She was performing consistently well in her previous jumps. She inititiated a 180 degree turn at approximately 80m, hit the ground very steeply and died instantly.
