It's about one-and-one-fifth times as fast as a Skydiver (headfirst).
In other words, the speed of a Skydiver (headfirst) is 0.830 times 170 knots.(Head-to-Earth orientation or standing, average conditions, terminal velocity)
A head-to-Earth or standing-oriented skydiver's terminal velocity assuming average conditions is about 140 knots. In a typical jump from 3,900 m (13,000 ft), a diver in this orientation will be in freefall for 46 seconds.
