    Why not make a problem with two skydivers, where one jumps out of the plane a couple seconds ahead of another. Their velocities will function exponentially until terminal velocity, and you can give the speed of the first skydiver from the pilots perspective assuming his frame is inertial, then ask for the same speed as perceived by the second skydiver.
