We always taught students to look down , identify & release harness , then jump out of aircraft - there are cases of people panicking , deplying chute by pulling anything they can in the cockpit , then trying to jump out ......

wingsuiting must be amazing - I am sure I'd love it if I ever had the balls to do it ! Full respect !
