    Up for sale is a real closet queen! I’m the second owner of this custom/matching Javelin Odyssey. The first owner was meticulous: when it had just 150 jumps, he sent it to SunPath to have a blue colored panel replaced because he some tape gunk from the plane stained it! With just ~360 jumps, and living her entire jumping life at Sebastian and her off-time in a dark air-conditioned room, to call her pampered is an understatement! All parts original as assembled in 2008! It was ordered with every option available. Javelin Odyssey J3K freefly ready, skyhook, upgraded backpad, upgraded legpads, articulated hips AND chest Sabre2 170: grey/orange to match the system Vigil Quattro: sent in last year for new battery/updated firmware (Aug 2018!) PD160R: no rides, few repacks Matching risers with easy-grip loops, 825 microline Matching freefly handle Matching soft emergency handles: MM is embroidered, I like to think of it as Mommy Maker, or Meat Missile Fits me at 6’ 175lb but it fit better at 6’ 195lb. Definitely has room to go up, but little room to go down. I bought it with 165 jumps, she now has about 365 on the system and <300 total jumps on the Sabre2. I was able to downsize to a 150 and eventually a 135! It fit fine but I wouldn’t go smaller. Please reach out with any questions. I live in Palm Beach!

    Dar Robinson - Any memories?

    Dar was working on a film along the highway going up to the north rim of Grand Canyon using motorcycles. AT the end of the day he bet the other stuntmen a case of beer on who could get down the mountain around the switchbacks first and he went off the road into some boulders at the tightest turn and died. I don't know if the estate made good with the case of beer.

    Thanks! I took a look and it was what I thought in that case. The problems with the layout on some posts are usually a result of users not completing their post shortcode correctly. For instance opening a bold tag but not closing it. Since the tag is then open, it affects the rest of the content on the page. There's no real easy quick fix for it, but if you do come across other examples and want to forward them for fixing, that'd be great.

    Someone asked at Quora who was the best airline pilot in history. There are plenty who could claim that crown. My vote went to Paul Soderlind at Northwest (Orient) Airlines. He's the guy, who along with his team, are most responsible for the current 'flight path map' on DB Cooper. But that was only a small part of his career. This is WHY.

    Might be worth a look at the logbooks. Your easiest method is to bring a camera, or use your smart phone to take pictures of the pages. You are talking about a LOT Of pages in that 1971 book, assuming they still have it. (or have THEM, if there is more than one) Easier if someone turns and holds the pages for you. On another note, I see that World Famous Nick's (tavern) in Amboy, WA is taking the reins on the annual Cooper Day party, since Bryan Woodruff at the Ariel Store hasn't been able to finance the restoration of the Ariel Store and start up the party again. All Nick needs is some DB Cooper paraphernalia and he's good to go. Thanksgiving is always tough for me to get out because my mother in law either comes up HERE to visit, or I have to go DOWN THERE. So I probably can't show to Nick's next year. However, I have offered up a few hundred bucks to him in Amazon gift cards, should he decide to hold a DB Cooper character (means Cooper, stews, crew, etc as usual) Lookalike Contest. I can just mail those to him if he wishes. We've scheduled up the first Cooper Campout for 2020. No one signed up via Facebook yet, but a couple of email inquiries via our Meetups (contact box) page at AB have come in. No sweat. It's still four months out and much easier to organize than some other things. A few of the 'regulars' have already expressed an interest, depending on the weather. Too far out to commit for sure.

    Up for sale is this TonySuits R-Bird Wingsuit. It was made for me at 5'5" (165cm) and 110lbs (50kg), and I put less than 100 jumps on it. Look at the third photo to see my order form; there are lots of exact measurements and features listed on there. This wingsuit has backfly inlets, BASE soles, extra-long 3-toggle leg pull zippers, and hook knife on the leg. I'm offering free shipping within the USA, or we can meet at Skydive Perris or Skydive Elsinore.

    Hi there! Up for sale is this JumpShack (Parachute Labs Inc) Firebolt 92. It's a 9-cell elliptical hybrid canopy that flies a lot like a Pilot. It's docile for an elliptical canopy, and I used it when wingsuiting because it has quick but soft on-heading openings. It has about 125 jumps on it, and the line set is in good shape. The design is red with black crosses like the famous "Red Baron" triplane. I'm offering free shipping within the USA, or we can meet up at Skydive Perris or Skydive Elsinore.

    Used Helix 75, in the "Fluid Wings Blue" color scheme. Canopy has about 500 jumps, no damage. The lineset has about 200 jumps, and looks to be in ok condition but will need replacing somewhat soon (this is reflected in the price). Also included is the Fluid Wings removable slider. The canopy is a blast to fly and has absolutely incredible openings, on heading and soft. Canopy has no major damage or markings.

  20. I have regular velocity 84 not sure how many jumps on it... Probably around 800. It started to open slower then I would like. I wonder if I put removable slider on it. Would that make it open a little faster? Or maybe stop using those snaps on a slider? PC is still OK I think. Not more then 100 jumps on it. Any advice?

    This case is very stale. Something like that could really make a difference. Good luck.
  23. I mostly agree but slight nitpick: he didn't actually say that no one was hurt. He said only that no one was killed. I assume, reading between the lines, that no one was hurt--but he didn't actually say that.
  24. No. It doesn't really need to be posted at all. Cut aways are not quite 'routine', but unless something really unusual happens, they don't merit an 'incident' report'. If you have a cut away and wish to post it, what happened, what your decision process was, what you think you could/should have done differently, and ask for feedback, that's a bit different. But to simply post that a cut away happened, nobody was hurt and no more info is not really worth it. Dan BC's piece about EPs and complacency is definitely worth the read. It's been posted on here before.

    AXIS B License Day

    Through this course, you'll gain an in-depth understanding of your parachute and learn from our expert coaches how to maximize your safety and performance while flying your wing. Unfortunately, most skydivers prioritize sign-offs over improving their individual canopy skills, leading to unprepared skydivers and unsafe flying, especially in challenging or unfamiliar conditions.This course will instill the fundamental habits of safer, controlled canopy flying that you can build upon for years to come. We will focus on advanced canopy control, active flying, and awareness. With safety in mind, our course focuses on giving you an advanced understanding of canopy flight as well as challenging you with important canopy control and input exercises.Above all else, we seek to improve your confidence and skill as a canopy pilot.The course includes*Classroom instruction*Canopy handling drills*Precision slow-flight*Stall control and recovery*Proper handling and application of toggles and risers*Individual analysis of all landings*Practical, personal instruction between jumpsAn AXIS coach will watch your entire canopy flight on all jumps and record your approach and landing. There will be a video debrief and theoretical class work after each jump.
  27. haha thanks for the replies! yes I'm quite new here.Maybe I should post it in the safety Forum. Recently I read an article about EPs written by Dan BC and I recommend it to everyone!
