"Almost" the thread title "CBS report states no regulations in skydiving", then the story speaks of the FAA and USPA and even has Ed on. She tried to make it a dramatic story, but then the reporter was far more factual and fair. She tried with her "spot light" and "almost No regulations" comment, but the report did not say "No regulation in skydiving" it said "almost".

Since CBS is already getting complaints from "us" I hope they are being factual.

An Instructors first concern is student safety.

?? In my shock I typed "No" but she does say in the beginning "almost no regulation". Important to remember that people often remember what they hear first and what they hear last.

Other than the video's title, where did it say that in the story? I didn't hear it, did I miss it?
Matt


The intro the woman go though: "an industry that has almost no regulations"



Which is actually true.

Wanna have your 5-year-old make his first skydive solo at night over water? Perfectly legal.

Now with the edited thread title the comments make no sense, time for the recycle bin with this thread.

There are some stupid MFers commenting on that story.


To summarize:
She was sleeping with the instructor to get him to commit suicide with her husband strapped to him by accidentally falling asleep from narcolepsy while skydiving. All this is for the insurance money that does not cover skydiving and she does not need.
On top of this: the Instructor, DZO, USPA, gear manufacturer, the dropzone dog and the mayor of Gardiner are all complicit/directly responsible for his death as well.
And as everyone knows: Skydivers normally have only one or two or three(?) parachutes. Instructors are not experienced skydivers (huh?) and the pilots decide when to deploy the parachute (?)
