    Diff between RW & Competition jumpsuits

    The important thing is to call the mfg with your measurements and let them help you decide how to get a fall rate that will allow you to easily play with others. Nobody flies best when having to fly near the upper or lower limit of what they can do.

    AFF 4 & 5 Heading Reference

    Yes, current USPA AFF-I/E, and yes, I run those courses by the book. But the subject isn't AFFICCs, it's dropzones that use traditional AFF or something like it.

  11. I've seen unleaded auto gas used in 172s & 182s for a long time. I've never seen lead additives added to it. A quick search didn't find any requirement for leaded gas, except in a few specific and rather unusual places (Franklin brand & radial type engines). The 'much less lubrication' is a myth leftover from the time when unleaded was starting to be required.

    It was three trips for chutes.. back chute, two fronts and the other back chute. Flo and Alice left after all the chutes brought on board.
  13. How about lack of 3 ring maintenance and low drag scenario. Ie bag lock or pilot chute in tow. People seem shocked that they have some maintenance to do on their rigs and even when they know most simply chose to ignore. Take a look at the dirty cables as a sign of lack of maintenance. The twisting of the risers at the 3 rings avoids them taking a set and this should be done fairly regularly.

    The Cheapest AFF Course DZ

    Being a small club DZ, at Skydive Fargo you actually get more than what you pay for. All 25 jumps include a coach or instructor flying with you. No extra charge. That being said, this program is not designed to bring in outsiders, as free coaching is a money losing proposition. It is all about bringing new local skydivers into the sport and growing our club. On a side note, we also offer AFF. It also includes coaches flying with you through A license.

    AFF 4 & 5 Heading Reference

    So, you run AFF ratings courses that don’t follow the ISP? ie, include docking in early dives? Is your Examiner rating from USPA?

    The Cheapest AFF Course DZ

    If you are looking for cheap, you may want to look into Static Line instead of AFF! For less than $1600USD you can get your A license @skydiveFargo. http://skydivefargo.com/static-line.html But remember you get what you pay for... just kidding, I'm sure its a great DZ. Static Line (SL) is usually a more affordable option for those who are looking to get into skydiving but dont have a ton of Cash. At some DZs you'll have to do a tandem and/or some tunnel time before you do start AFF, so take that into account when comparing various DZs' SL and AFF costs. Dont let people discourage you because you're lacking finances and wanna get into the sport. good luck and do your research!

    For those of you really into the 'books written ABOUT or BY hijackers', there is one you may not have heard about. It is the autobiography of Patrick Dolan Critton, who at the age of 25 hijacked a plane to Cuba and was on the run for many years. The link on his name above leads to his hijacking entry by author Brendan Koerner. The link HERE leads to the book he wrote after he got out of prison in Canada. Although he was from the US, he actually did his hijacking in Canada. I won't vouch for the quality of the book, but he does cover the hijacking in chapter five. Tell you the truth, I had not heard of this guy.
  26. RobertMBlevins

    DB Cooper

    Yes...this is true. I was talking about when the other stews were there with Cooper, not earlier when Mucklow first brought the money on board. That part is covered in page 69 of the Gray book, a few pages back when Mucklow and the hijacker spoke alone: (To cut to the chase, Mucklow has just brought the bag on board and given it to Cooper. Passengers still on board, other two stews still up front near the door.) At this point, one passenger comes back on board to get his briefcase, and Mucklow practically shoves it at him. Crew complains that a passenger came back on board...FBI still stalling on the fuel truck. The only weak spot in this section of Gray's book is he doesn't say anything about Tina bringing the chutes on board. Gray notes that Cooper tells her to get them...then she says they are too heavy...Cooper tells her she will manage...and then the chutes are suddenly on the plane. Sounds like she retrieves them when she follows the guy who forgot his briefcase..after she escorts him off the plane. It is too bad that Flo and Alice and the rest of the crew simply didn't run for it down the forward stairs right there...because for a few seconds...there was no one between them and Cooper. In other words, all five remaining crew were up front, Cooper was in back, passengers now gone, and Mucklow was on the tarmac getting the chutes. They should have just run for it right there. Right down the damn stairs and grabbed Mucklow on their way, maybe throwing whatever chute she was carrying to the ground, and getting the hell out of there. That move would have left Cooper alone on the plane before he realized what was going on. But no one made the move, so when Tina came back up...the storm-the-plane opportunity disappeared. It was a pretty small window, but it was there for a few seconds. They even had a SECOND window to catch Cooper alone and missed it! You have to figure it took TWO trips at least for Mucklow to bring the chutes on board. Now the OTHER TWO stews are GONE as well. Just the three flight crew up front. Why didn't the crew bail when Mucklow went back outside for a second trip to get the remaining chutes? LOL no wonder Cooper got away with it. The escape was enabled by NWA CEO Donald Nyrop demanding cooperation and payoff...and an FBI team that was never ready and had their heads up their butts. No one thought of the obvious ploys to trap Cooper in the back alone. For example, the crew could have ditched their coats and hats and sneaked right off with the passengers. So when Mucklow goes out for the chutes, no one is left on board. Or...the FBI could have had the crew crack the windshield and fed them the rope ladder while the passengers were getting off the plane. Same result. Cooper deserved the money he got, and to get away with it. It was Amateur Night With Your Local FBI all the way that evening.
