Paybacks a B***** :-) Can't Post

7 yr layoff (work, life, health issues, as the prop turns etc). Refresher training yesterday and get introduced to my instructor. He looks at me odd then he says "you taught my FJC!" Blush
We worked well on the ground and then a nice low key 2 way. I guess he will be an evaluator if I decide to get my ratings back Crazy

Now that's funny, I don't care who you are! Take it as a compliment. You helped someone years ago that has given back to the sport. Keep paying it forward.

hah! Hope you weren't hard on himNah but I was supposed to pull in place and I kept slipping away from him as he lurked on my side. Kinda like a nervous twitch Smile
I did take it very much as a compliment but also things change in 7 years and I respected his currency and professionalism.
On a side note I used to weigh in at 190lbs jumping a Spectre170. I now weigh 150lbs so what should a 49 yr old with mad skills really be flying? Wink

Read my profile. Fly that Laugh

Really though, at your jump numbers and previous choice, Safire2 129 or even a Crossfire2 129. Get on a 135 something other than spectre after a few jumps ,then try one out. You'll be pleasantly surprised. Welcome back.

Oooo ..takes me way back. I went through Special Forces training in '77. One guy was especially hard on me, but I made it some how. I went to UWO (SCUBA) school in '78. Very hard school. Of 30 Green Berets who started only 9 finished. That next summer I ran a "pre Scuba" course ... Guess who was in it? Yep! oh, BTW, he did not pass.

^This. My first and only reserve save was the first guy who ever took the time to stay late in the hanger with me teaching me how to pack as a student :)

Well, you can flutter-kick them to death, if you want.

For some reason my section NCOIC decided to invite our 1SG to pool PT with us. He showed up with a bag of 'goodies'. He is a green-hatter, but none of us realized he used to be on a dive team and SCUBA.

We didn't make that mistake again. LaughLaugh
