Re: [AndreLB3] Student Jumpsuit Question

Jumpsuits aren't mandatory by the regs because it's so freaking obvious it doesn't need to be.

If you are cleared for solo, jump how you want, it's your option. But not wearing a jumpsuit is kinda stupid as a newbie. Unless it's REALLY hot out......then it's kinda nice, but you need to always consider safety and performance. Ask an instructor what to consider if you go suitless. It's not a dumb question.

((actually not wearing a suit is no biggie - but be aware of what can be different with the new config)

(clean lines, handles don't get covered up, helps you fly a bit if it fits right, easier for the coach to fly with you on checkout dives - so if you choose not to and it's allowed, be aware of these things when you suit up - instructors should be free with advice.)

have fun and congrats on the AFF.

Edit: whoops, your next post shows you are thinking the right things. good for you
