i'll probably get flamed..

Recommended Posts

..with my low jumpnumbers as i've read here..

the instructor said i was gonna be alright!

well, anyway, i did two jumps with a prodigy today! that was friggin' awesome, i'm sure my performance sucked, but at least i had gotten a feel for it. for a couple of seconds, it got all very quiet! that was way cool..

i'm surprised how much power you have to put into this, or i was just to cramped up.. but yea, premature birthday present that was for me, and most of all, i've had a blast!!!

i needed that lately..

it wasnt really clever from that guy, was it? i mean seriously!

and its not as i was nagging his ear for it. it was the other way around.

he gave me what i believed to be a thorough briefing for over an hour. i practised opening stable a lot, checked my handles, how to undo the wings and so on..

bad?

That "rating" and $4 bucks will get you a coffee type thing at Starbucks.

So you have an AFF rating and consider yourself to be a wingsuit instructor, and condone someone with 80 jumps being sent up on a wingsuit?

Right, your judgement seems sound.:S

what kind of constructiveness you expected? I'm really curious to hear an answer.



I agreee... What exactly did you expect to hear? I mean look at the title of your OWN thread, which YOU posted. You obviously know that you went against the recomended/manufacturer mandated (birdman) suggestions. What did you expect people to say?

Never said I agreed just pointing out your short comings -- since you always seem to be the one to flame everyone else.

And for the record I don't consider myself a wingsuit instructor (as you do)-----I am one

Since there does not seem to be a single universally accepted "wingsuit instructor" qualification, I guess anyone who has ever given any instruction in the use of a wingsuit can call themselves a wingsuit instructor too.

Exactly, that is why jumpers wanting to learn to fly a wingsuit should choose wisely as to the instruction they are getting, as well as who they are getting it from, and not the just some Yahoo with an extra wingsuit......

And how does someone new judge wisely? The roster? A patch? The one with the most extra suits? I say pick the one who has easy financing or offers the three easy payment options.

I never met a "yahoo with an extra suit" that I didn't like. On the flipside some ( not all!) of those guys on the roster with their patches............are down twisted!

seriously man, i haven't ran into anybody teaching people to wingsuit who is giving out dangerous advice (maybe the sub 200 jumps if you believe in that voodoo). are there people doing this and what does this consist of?

i don't know what down twisted is but i sure hope i'm that.

also addressing voodew "sick burn!"

Glen, lets not turn this into something stupid, like who got a patch in a bar thing. There is already enough stupid shit posted on this forum these days to make anyone avoid it anyway. :S
It's not hard for someone to do alittle asking around as to would be better for giving some instruction, patch or no patch.......

It mainly consists of saturating the applicants brain with fear of the dreaded flat spin. Once consumed by this fear the applicant makes that third and final payment.
