whats the most jumps you guys have heard of with out having a USPA membership?



Considering there are skydivers all over the world who aren't USPA members I'm guessing a lot.

ok i realize i just walked into the lions den with this one. (have fun, bash away)

let me rephrase the question.

ok so i have about 350 jumps and im not a uspa member nor do i have any of my licenses and ive made all my jumps in california.
ppl give me crap all the time about not being a USPA member and not having a license. (surprise surprise)
so from a local US jumper at your DZ whats the most jumps you've heard of someone making with out getting these things signed off
Jump more, Bitch less.

Many, many at my DZ with 10k+ jumps, some close to / over 20k. We have to sign in each jump day and record details of jumps to date, jumps this year, canopy size etc etc. I have been third to sign in before now and previous jumpers (2) have close to 40k jumps between them.


But, to the astonishment of many people using this site, there is a world outside the US, I believe. And many of the people who live in that strange world outside the US might not be USPA members.

I knew a guy in Michigan who had about 1500 jumps and only an A-licence. He also owned a Beech 18. Guys would ask him 'what would you do if you wanted to do a demo somewhere, but you don't have a D-licence?' He'd say "I'd buy my own plane and have someone fly me there in it...."
If some old guy can do it then obviously it can't be very extreme. Otherwise he'd already be dead.

why do all europeans think americans are unaware there are other countries? just because you travel to the neighboring feifdom 6 miles away doesnt make you a "world traveller." sorry we have a big country.

Maybe becasue 75% of the population does not have a passsport or a clue to whats happening outside the country.
