Tandem statistics?

Recommended Posts

Thats a tough one. I know USPA requires their DZ's to report Tandem malfunctions, however I don't know whether they also require totals. Someone here should know.

You also have the non-USPA DZ's.

Good Luck

I'm not trying to get into an argument but how do you know this?

There was in incident a few years ago in this area with a GM and, upon inquiry, USPA told me that GM's were not req'd to file reports of incidents. This particular incident was a low opening - AAD fire - two out - downplane - both people injured; guess who got injured the worst. B|

Just wondering . . .

Don't want my thread to get hijacked. Just want to know the % of Tandems thats request video and stills.



Video is going to very quite a bit DZ to DZ. Hell, it varies quite a bit day to day at my DZ. There are days that we do 90%, then others where we do 20%. Overall for my little DZ, I'd say that it's 60 to 70%. We fly one 182, and offer only hand cam (w/GoPro Stills) these days. Also possibly of note, we do around double the video since we moved to HC. A huge percentage were put off of video since they "couldn't go with their friend."
Experience is what you get when you thought you were going to get something else.
