    Hear all about Nat Loufoque's theory on the DB Cooper skyjacking and his very interesting suspect on the latest episode of The Cooper Vortex! https://thecoopervortex.podbean.com/e/db-cooper-went-rouge-nat-loufoque/
  5. Hi I’ve had an issue with skyhook getting stuck with baglock malfunction. Essentially just keeping the baglock attached to you. Thought it was just really bad luck until I came across some other instructors who knew this does and has happened in the past as well. Apparently it’s a malfunction that exposes a problem in the skyhook design. Before going into great detail , what are your experiences and thoughts on this malfunction associated with the operation of the skyhook

    Fuel per jump

    After hiking I came to the assumption, if we don't push the envelope then we'll never have the opportunity to upgrade to a better mode of transportation.
  11. New to LA, specifically Marina del Rey, was wondering if there were any riggers in the city. Just wondering if I can skip the drive to Perris or Elsinore. Thanks!
  12. Also, is the price negotiable ?
  13. Can someone recognize (and be 100% sure) the type of those lines? Vectran or HMA? Thanks!!

    Lets not forget over the years of you constantly complaining not being able to defend yourself where you have been banned? legit reasons were noted why this took place. now, it appears that you can censor those you feel censored you? two wrongs make a right in this logic? Eric can't defend himself with the articles posted on Quora or Bruce? we know I've been censored for asking a legit question? isn't this like being pre-banned. something you constantly bring up over the years? wouldn't this be considered slanted as you always state? you make articles about others and don't allow a defense to take place where questions can be asked below the article directly to the source? what caused the pre-banning of others? I'm not objecting to the right to do what you are stating but it's rather hypocritical. it sounds like you want to tell things the way you see fit and exclude any challenge and not allow what happens here to happen on Quora. remember, you were banned for reasons on other forums. we appear to be banned simply for exclusion. you are doing the exact samething you preached against for the last five years..fearing what happens here to happening at Quora shows you know very well all of this doesn't belong here....

    DZ wasn't the concern. it was the censorship of legit questions. doesn't matter how hard it is to find someone. you don't look for someone who posted an article. that means they are right there. then as mentioned scold people for not going directly to the source. asking a legit question on article made by that person is as direct as one can get. it was censored. if it was disruptive or included going into detail about other things diverting from the actual question, then yes, remove it. Censorship is the suppression of speech, public communication, or other information, on the basis that such material is considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, or "inconvenient".Censorship can be conducted by a government, private institutions, and corporations.

    Well, now that DZ is back open again, this is not a problem. Your members can drop by here anytime they wish if they have questions. But...I have seen posts at that forum by some of your members saying they will never come here. Well, okay. That is their choice. Access to the Quora Space on Cooper is highly restricted as far as commenting or posting for obvious reasons. We only have maybe six or seven folks signed up as contributors, and none of them are actually from the Cooperland Community. It's not like I'm hard to find. I don't really visit the Cooper Forum anymore. As the saying goes, I don't go where I'm not wanted. More or less anyway. And frankly I have my hand in at too many websites already. Infamous Nissan, Quora, (a lot) WordPress, DZ, World of Tanks, (fear the KV-1!) and elsewhere.

    KISS XL Skydiving Helmet Matte Black

    Time Left: 29 days and 15 hours

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    Selling my KISS XL Matte Black skydiving helmet. Bought it from Chuting Star to upgrade from my old helmet but it turned out to be a mediocre fit for the shape of head I have. Helmet has some tiny scratches at the back and one visible scuff in the center of the visor; you may elect to replace/upgrade it, if desired. Otherwise it's in excellent condition, jumped no more than 10 times.

    Didn't you scold others for asking a question about you on my forum and not going to you for the answer? it's different when someone asks a question surrounding statements in an article you wrote?
  19. mrshutter45

    DB Cooper

    Censoring questions is never a good idea. if they are disruptive then yes. that's what public forums and sites consist of. you have the right to do that but I don't believe it's right in this case. especially when the article was inaccurate as I stated in my censored comment. you didn't come on my forum with anything legit other than spite. since you censored me on that question. I shouldn't have posted anything here backing my censored comment, but I did. you censored it on Quora and DEMANDED it here? kind of hypocritical, no?
  20. RobertMBlevins

    DB Cooper

    I don't trust many of the people at your website...they have a negativity history, especially Georger. You have hosted literally HUNDREDS of negative comments with my name attached over the years. I am not allowing anything remotely like that to happen at the Quora Space. This isn't about censorship. It's common sense. Look...this is a dead subject. The situation between us is what it is. You can post Cooper stuff here, at your forum, and you can make polite comments at the Cooper WordPress, although unlike Bruce I actually screen the comments for sensibility. If you want to do Quora, fill out your profile and create something there.
  21. mrshutter45

    DB Cooper

    Yes, yes I do. you brought it up, not me. then post a version not accurate of the event. bringing up a ban from 2014 is a protest, no?
  22. RobertMBlevins

    DB Cooper

    Do you see me protesting any of this? Or being not-okay with your banning decision? I'm fine with it. And by the way...I only made two posts there. The first was totally harmless. The second one I said who I was. I only did it to show that it could be done, but I knew the second I revealed myself, I would be banned. I'm just fine with the current situation.
  23. mrshutter45

    DB Cooper

    I don't have any fascination with Quora. it's something once again brought up by you. I read the article and commented and was censored. a legit question was asked and removed. then you actually realized the question was valid and state you are changing it? as mentioned before...way to go...
  24. Tandem is an excellent way to start; someone else deals with business while you get to experience sensory overload. I started before tandem, and I’d recommend it for anyone. However, that tandem should form part of your student progression; there should be a set of skills that you should demonstrate during it. Wendy P.

    DB Cooper

    The reason why you were not welcome on my forum is because this happens where ever you go. Quora is not related to Cooper investigators. it's a different format. it's something you formed. yes, you can block me but now you no longer have the right to blame me for blocking you. I had my reasons prior to your intrusion. that only sealed the deal.
  26. RobertMBlevins

    DB Cooper

    What is your fascination with the Cooper Space at Quora? You already run the biggest Cooper website going. You banned me from that site years ago. What is it you expect from me? Why should I give you any consideration regarding commenting or asking questions at the Space? Not like I can do THAT at YOUR place. Why don't we just leave it at that. Like I said, I'm okay with that arrangement and call it Even Steven.

    Another option is Skydive Spaceland; I know the Houston DZ well, and they do an excellent job with students, as well as with moving you to the next level so that you can jump with others. Wendy P.

    DB Cooper

    Okay, so then I can make a bunch of articles and complain for the next 5 years about being censored on Quora for asking a legit question and being pre-banned from commenting?
