Airspeed vs. Altitude
The airspeed of a falling body varies with altitude. This applies to skydivers in freefall or any parachute system in descent.
Airspeed at 12,000 ft will be 20% higher than the airspeed at sea level.
At a drop zone with a 6,000 ft density altitude, airspeed would be 9.2% greater than the sea level airspeed.
