182 jumpers be careful !! Can't Post

My friend had a 10,000 foot round reserve jump today as when we exited a 4 way, he caught the reserve pin on the door and pulled it out. Just a word of warning - it can happen !!

He was a big guy landing under a Lo-po (24 foot) so he landed quite hard and it winded him, but he's ok. Just pleased to be down.

Are any of us ever really pleased to be down? I know I am at work today and I am not pleased to be down. Wink

If we all kept our grips, we would have had a 4 way Mr Bill from a round !!! That would have been good.

Waho. you can get with C-182 to 10,000 ft.
yesterday It took us about 8 min for the first 1000 ft it was just at the pomp and 45 min later we were still not at 9000 ft. it just takes too dam long .
One of Our dropzone rulles C-182 go no higher than 9,000 ft (and even then it cost more than it brings)

I've jumped at 12k from a 182 (it had wing extensions, so that helped a little), but what really comes into play is field elevation and wind condition.

The pilot must have the thing way out of trim - we normally get to 10,000 in about 20 - 25 minutes.

When you participate in sporting events, its not whether you win or loose, its how drunk you get.

In that one (C-182) you do have more time than you need to get drunk while is climbing to alttitud

Who knows....maybe the pilot just has no idea what Vy means? Years ago I saw a jump pilot try to climb a 182 at 90KIAS all the way to altitude..

About 60 I think. Stall speed can't be much below 55.

Vy for the older straight tailed Cessna 182's... 89mph at sea level, 85mph at 5000 msl, 82 mph at 7500 msl, 80mph at 10000msl...
The service ceiling on my 1956 is 20,100' and they do go that high... I ve dropped jumpers from flight level 210 at least 10 times... quickest time to 210 was 42 minutes, longest was 50 minutes... all with 4 jumpers. Everytime I file to drop jumpers, the controllers always challenge me and make bets, etc. (I do let them know where I can no longer maintain the 500 feet per minute... (usually around 13-14k).

Gotta love them old 182's!

Chris

(Vy at 20,000 is about 60-65 mph, best I recall...)

We jump a 182 every weekend- about 20 min to altitude- usually 10,500 agl- Airfield elevation I think is around 800 feet-

Life begins at 14,000' - Shut up and jump!

Hrm, that is what the owner/other jump pilot tells me to climb at.. we have a 56 straight tail 182. I got so bored today that I was riding thermals all the way to altitude and shaved around 4 minutes off the climb. Also did some RW work with a tandem while I was in the airplane, now THAT was fun.

Yah, and I've had a pilot tell me it was ok to let CHT go over redline on climb in a 206. Some pilots do the damndest things.
