Wow. That's $10 per SECOND for the bump from 23k to 30k.

And even so, it sounds easily worth it to me!

Ya need the Class 3 in order to do the chamber ride, but if they're blowing off the chamber ride requirement, then I don't see why you'd need the Class 3 either.

My point is that they are not requiring either.

Well since none of it is "required" that is not my issue. Even if they are not going to require the high altitude awareness class (which they should) at least require a medical as there is definitely a physiological difference at that altitude that can affect the body.

My point is that while the average Aviation Medical Examiner, AME, is well versed in giving Class 3 medicals, unless they're specifically tipped off by the Class 3 questionaire to look out for issues that may be of concern at altitudes requiring oxygen (like you were missing a lung or something), they'd probably let you get the medical. The chamber ride is a much better "gatekeeper" for high altitude stuff than the Class 3.

I'm curious...where does a civilian go to get a chamber ride?

I've only done it in the military.

Just wondering!

Here ya go!

Ya need a current Class 3 medical to attend and military gets the first slots, but it's doable by the average skydiver or pilot.

In case you didn't read down the page. From
http://www.halojumper.com/...ht_questions.htm#how

"AUGUST - 1st through the 10th we will be at the World Freefall Convention- We will have one load per day (6 slots) at 6:00 am. Price is $350.00 per jumper. Briefings and equipment fittings will be at 8:30 pm after the sunset loads for the next mornings jump. You will NOT need a flight physical. You must complete a waiver and medical info form. The price is a little higher due to the additional costs / fees at the convention. You will receive a certificate documenting your jump and altitude as well as two 8x10s, one of the load and one of yourself. There will be NO practice jumps. We'll be jumping from Cpt. Mike Mullins Super King Air.....See you there. "

Having gone throught the chamber ride, I think it's a mistake to not require a physical or make a practice jump with the equipment. At 25000' in the chamber I was pretty stupid after three minutes.
