Gear up, but instead of getting on the plane, get on a scale. Alternatively, get on the plane, but exit before it takes off and hop on a scale.

Don't forget helmet, goggles, gloves, etc.

Nope... all weight is needed to figure wing loading. Do airplanes not figure the weight of their wings in their takeoff weight? Wink

Do I HAVE to do another raft dive??? Smile

Only for calculating the wing loading of your reserve.

That is, assuming you actually chopped the main.

It's your body weight plus everything you're wearing. That's it. Unless you tell us the weight of your clothing and each piece of gear and your body weight, then no, we can't really tell you your exit weight other than guessing about 20-25lbs over your body weight. You don't need to figure anything out, just gear up and hop on the scale.

"just gear up and hop on the scale."

Or wait until the carnival comes to town and let that guy guess your exit weight. I think thats only a buck.

Hope? I do that all the time, JG, all the time. Most of the time I hope in vain, but hope springs (hops?) eternal......Wink

BTW, I tried your trick on determining wind direction from a static object. I think it worked. I'll have to try it again. Thanks!

Yeah, but you've got to sit on his face first.
