Congrats (again) Schlomo!
I'd guess there aren't many in the world with 10K tandem jumps.
Been a pleasure to share the air with you a coupla times.
Now...get back here and set another milestone; FLY A WINGSUIT! :P

Hi

Thanks.

Between the "Rigging Tips" & Rigging I do Tandems, AFF & Camera flying.

Cheers



Hi Rigger

10K tandems, That, thats, thats :o a lot of tandems:)
Now please tell us reguler humans tha it took you more than 3-5 yr's to hit that milestone your only 30 Y.O. and your slowing down at the end of the day;)

FWIW I think the first TM in the US to break the 1K milestone was a man named Mark Scott jumped at Snohomish Wa around mid 1980's.

Most of his jumps were out of cessna 180/182 to 9.5. Rate of climb was "limited"B|

Congrats MR. Rigger!!

Thanks for that & for the training & care I always get from youself & UPT.

Proud to jump your system = Sigma / SG & SG2 370 / VR360

I have about 9000 jumps on the Sigma system & never had an issue with it.

I used the VR360 few times with all generation: RSL / Skyhook / Skyhook & Staging Loop & always worked great for me.

Thanks for saving us each time we jump out of an aircraft.

Cheers

Wow. Are you the first to reach this milestone for tandems?



According to Don Kellner's page http://www.dkellner.info/DonKellner.html, he has "well over" 10,000 tandems.

I'd be surprised if Phil Onis in Sydney doesn't have more than 10000 tandems. He's got somewhere over 26,000 jumps, runs a DZ, and does tandems every day.

No we have a few 10K TMs here in OZ so Id say there's quite a lot around the globe.


But Congrats Rigger :)
You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky)
My Life ROCKS!
How's yours doing?

You are right Bob, Phil must easily have that many. And of course Don Kellner and a few other people I have jumped with.

But still, anyone with over 10K is quite amazing. Just the amount of hard physical work that takes is truly remarkable.

To the OP, Good for you sir, I am also very impressed!
Onward and Upward!
