Rich Winstock Swoop Incident Cover-Up

Recommended Posts

******Rich is still swooping the buildings from what people have seen at Sussex and no one can stop him.



If that's true I would hope someone with personal knowledge of it would call him out in a most public way.

He might have meant somebody could video him swooping the buildings and observer areas and upload the videos to the site.

It probably wouldn't do any good. After my discussion at Nationals it is what we thought, good ole boy politics. Good people are going to leave and we will be left with what we have...
I hope Abbie runs next year or some other new blood or we will never see
a change...WTF Rich and Sherri...

Depends how you look at it. I've flown jumpers out of that airport. Not a lot of outs if you loose an engine after take off.
It could have easily been a multiple fatality report.
I for one would be giving Rich a big hug and thank you for keeping everyone alive and unhurt. Well done sir!

Is this guy still representing USPA as a head of SnTA?

So our SnTA promotes spectator swooping? and still stay in place after two people requiring serious hospital time?

What a bullshit, not joining USPA until this guy steps down.

I don't get it.

How can this guy have authority to suspend other skydivers for their behavior?

Why doesn't he just step down?

Does he not have any fucking morals/core values to follow?

Hope the person who got airlifted sue the fuck out of this guy.

Rumor has it Rich did not have the appropriate amount of hours needed to fly jumpers legally in the plane he just crashed. How can anyone look into this to see if it is the truth? Logbook? What if he lies about the hours he has flown?


What is the third strike going to finally be? Is he still going to be STA for the USPA after he finally kills somebody?

That's FAA concern. Commercial rating is commercial rating regarless of the flight time the guy has.

But as a ex-USPA member, it is concerning that the fact that the person who regulates and punishes other USPA member for being a dumbass, yet Rich Winstock let's himself off the hook for being fuck-tard is a whole another level of corruption.

Not renewing membership until this guy has no longer a SnTA.

Rumor has it your a dick. Rumor has it your an asshole. Rumor has it your hiding behind your keyboard jerking off. But its only rumors. So if you know something beside rumors you should be posting it here. If not post it in Bonfire.
Replying to: Re: Stall On Jump Run Emergency Procedure? by billvon

If the plane is unrecoverable then exiting is a very very good idea.

Fact

Winstock himself did some dumbass shit, causing bodily injury. An injury so critical, they needed person to be airlifted.

Winstock is still acting as a SnTA. Giving out punishments to AFFi and Ti for doing dangerous shit and get caught.

The proof that he is a dumbass is that if Rich would've step down in first place then no one would've been reading this thread. But by keeping his position as SnTA, he has lost alot of member's trust and member's trust for USPA.

USPA is not even a federal bureaucracy and they act as if they were one.

If it was federal bureaucracy Rich would've been fired long time ago.

This is his twitter page. Canopy safety? lol, gotta be a joke right?

Why would you think a former cop who pleaded guilty for running illegal texas hold'em tornaments (costing him his job) would have any morals?

Seriously? Rich did that? :S
