What factors are critical in a performance WS BASE design?
Start Arc, for margin on exit.
Glide performance, for reaching objectives.
Speed range, to reduce the tendency of stall.
Stable and usable speed, for increased maneuverability.
Flare power, for safe and immediate separation from terrain, and margin for deployment.
The AURA 3 was designed from the ground up by veteran WS BASE jumpers with these points in mind.
