Ohhh that very very bad!!! Crazy Lucky that the main open well!!!

But a question comes into my mind. Is this king of door always have this little handle there?? That is a kind of big safety issue! It is quite obvious that something on your rig can get stuck onto that handle?

Correct me if I'm wrong! (New in the sport and have always jump from twin so no issue with the door)

If you search there's atleast one thread on here I've read that goes into detail about it. Long story short you're correct, the handle isn't the best idea; it isn't too common but it really just depends where you jump.

By the way, you must be mistaken with your A license number, if you just got it you'll be over 55,000 Cool

It's CSPA A liscence, not an USPA A liscence. And it's the right numberSmile I got it last summer in august. I worked hard for it, please don't call me a liar Frown

There aren't really that many.

It includes all A licenses ever issued. A lot of jumpers have upgraded to a higher license. Others have quit.

I can think of at least 10 jumpers that I know personally that aren't jumping anymore.

They are included in the 55000.
