Post your best AFF picture

Recommended Posts

AFFI looks like he could get booted in the mug pretty good in picture 051. I'm a noob in the instructor world but I don't think I'd want to be in that position during deployment.

keep the pics coming. these are great

Nope, original image, student deployed himself. The main side AFFI has a refusal to drop his grip until it's ripped from his hands by the deploying canopy. I know that's not the SOP, and I think he knows that not the SOP, but that's how he does it.

I was actually wondering if anyone would pick up on that or not. I still like the composition of the pic, even if it's not technically correct.

I guess it counts as an AFF jump.... (its the beginning of what was eventually a failed AFF eval). Damn "student" tried to sit fly on us. Thats me on the far side, cussing up a blue streak and shaking the ever loving hell out of the student.

Oh well, like I always say: "Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted." I got a lot of experience there.

I only filmed 2 AFF jumps so far, 1 lvl1 and 1 first solo. Usually we don't offer video on a first solo but the jumper really wanted it and it was his last jump before going back to his home country Egypt so I got volunteerd :D. He's quite heavy and flew quite interesting, I now have an even better apreciation for AFF instructors!

I sure wish I had a pic like the last one from my own earliest jumps :)
