Whats your limits?

Recommended Posts

I now have 1,712 tandems and like others have said
if the wind is clean, from the right direction, and you
have shaggers who are willing to run, then jumping
in 20ish is dobale but definitely draining.

My most tandems in one day: 17 from a Super King Air

Most jumps in a day: 21 BASE jumps from the KL Tower

16 tandems out of a cessna. I didn't pack!!! I did make a fun jump after that. If the winds are 220 we can jump 28-29mph. Must be minumal gusts.



9 tandems and a fun jump (done it twice now), I packed them all and even trained most of them.

I was a little wore out.

KL Tower is a famous building in Malaysia:

Yes, definitely had a lift, and it was over 24 hours
for a Guinness Record attempt that 3 hours of rain
unfortunately made basically impossible.


Back to SKY jumping, I agree with you guys that
10 out of a Cessna 182 is brutal due to the extra
effort getting them out of the plane. Although a
lightly loaded 206 with the roll door is awesome.

Plus here in Florida, the heat is a factor and the
longer the day the more you are tapping into
your reserves... damn I sound like an old F$%^
approaching 40 don't I ?? [:/]

I am so far comfortable with 6-8 tandems a day incl. packing as long as packing is in the hangar ;) 6 students with 90kg (~200 lbs) especially with BMI 28+ will exhaust me as much as 8 tandems with let's say students around 80 kg, though ;)

Steady, clean wind at ~20 knots is doable but I prefer to stay on the ground if it's > 16/18 knots.
The sky is not the limit. The ground is.
