At ours... IMO...

Discussion on jump numbers to fly video. We follow USPA recommended minimum.Personally I feel it should be 500 jumps.

Exit order, hook turns swooping, and wingsuits= most discussed.
Exit order=most controversy
Hook turns/setups=most information exchange

Aircraft emergencies were heavily discussed, but since we hear a lot about this topic from pilots that also skydive, it wasn't much of anything new or controversial, it was more that the mechanic and pilot that discussed this subject had a really well put together presentation on turbine engine failure.

Knowing your gear, people pounding themselves in under perfectly good mains, freefly safety: most discussed.

There was also a good presentation on demo jumps. Smile

Most Discussion: Previous years incidents and emergency procedures
Most controversy: If and where 270 degree turns fit into a landing pattern
Most information exchange: Intro to freeflying conversation or the talk about what a good landing pattern is.

I thought our pilot's safety briefing was most interesting. He was very articulate in describing the events up front when one of the rubber bands breaks on a Twin. I feel safe flying with him.
