Re: [Starbanger] Dislocated shoulder

I wouldn't recommend it at all.

Only way could possibly be is learn how to fly in the tunnel and make sure that you learn such a way to do so, and it is possible to fly all axis without shoulder dislocaton, I've know couple tunnel instructor with dislocating shoulder.

Even than learn how to pop em back in, so that if someone with rough dock pulls your arm out you can pop it back in under canopy.

Stay under big canopy or learn how to fly it with one arm with big docile one.

I would not wanna fly my current canopy with one arm.

This is my biggest fear and I haven't really practiced up high yet, even tho I practice flying backwards all the time.

If you have to proceed with emergency procedure you better hope that you do not have dislocated shoulder at the time.

In fact this is my first question that I ask my first jump course student, so that I don't end up wasting my time, "have you ever had shoulder dislocation?,"
