I've done that and it frigging hurts. You end up with bruises where the straps were snugged up. If the plane is going too fast, it can actually tear up the parachute canopy and you don't jump a reserve at those sorts of low level insertions.
so, that's intentional?I would think just walk and jump would be preferable
Not intentional, he's lucky he was on the ramp. The results can be gruesome if a chute deploys while waiting to static line from the side doors.
