How NOT to lurk a tandem...

Recommended Posts

he deleted that video,
here's another one (pretty much a short version of that disaster plus some more)

if you don't want him to delete it, don't post on youtube... I am trying to convince him in a civilized way that he is just doing it wrong

edited to add that it's worth noticing the tandem "videot" also doing a piss poor job on exit

He might be doing it wrong, but that entire DZ is wrong for letting him do all that. Don't they have some regulations about using tandems as "flying base for students" (plus jumping camera, plus flying a damn circuit) in Poland?

Yes, the dz, and the general attitude seems very wrong to say the least.
I never jumped in Poland and am not aware of what the regulations are, but i would not be surprised if they are strict, just not followed

Me neither,
I also hate to generalize, but it seems like way too many jumpers from the eastern Europe (Russia, Poland, Ukraine, etc) show absolute disregard for safety, poor attitude and lack of any forward thinking.

Ir makes me wonder if it's just lack of proper training, or simple cultural 'i'm untouchable' attitude B|

I see it all the time

Check out the other canopy on opening in this one:

freeze it @ 1:14 and again @ 1:20...wow




Pretty good picture unless you know it was taken in freefall.:D



You can't do slider up-snivel CReW if you don't open close to each other...

If you noticed the date at the end, Sept 5, 2010, he only did 11 jumps in 7 months. He's averaging 1.5 jumps a month, that's barely staying current.

I feel sorry for the tandems that go to that place. They have no idea about any of it. They probably just assume that the people that are flying around them know what they are doing.

Ya think :S

Still doesn't make him any more current and that is not the time to be lurking a tandem. Low jump numbers, low experience, uncurrent, arrogant and ignorant all equal a disaster waiting to happen.

Once again, I feel sorry for the tandems that go to that dropzone.

I'm just glad he lives pretty much on the other side of the planet, which greatly reduces the chances of him and I being in the same general air space at the same time.
