Straight and level, 90 to 100 knots. Don't know your airframe or anticipated altitude  ... I've released jumpers from from UH-1's and Chinooks, from 1,200 to 20,000 feet. Expect a CG change, but nothing dramatic. Move away from the area before descending. Know how many jumpers and try to get a visual on the chutes and keep them in sight. Good memories of the Fort Bragg jump club many years ago. I was a member and both flew and jumped. I got two AH-1 jumps logged before Uncle Sam decided riding on the ammo bay doors wasn't safe. :(
