    Skyvan Air Force Fatal

    Didn't realize this happened in 2014. Should probably be moved to safety and training. http://aerossurance.com/safety-management/usaf-parachute-skyvan/?fbclid=IwAR3LUPKn5OrVlrU5YcWxH7J0HPiFsvpXk2UT6I2sYax9jyNPH9dW76IuQWA
  5. The Air and Space Museum would be perfect. And more realistic to accomplish. Replying to: Re: Stall On Jump Run Emergency Procedure? by billvon If the plane is unrecoverable then exiting is a very very good idea.

    [Icon I4] small main canopy ?

    No, his information is not wrong. You refuse to accept the manufacture's information. Replying to: Re: Stall On Jump Run Emergency Procedure? by billvon If the plane is unrecoverable then exiting is a very very good idea.

  13. In 18 years I have only been to one DZ that had a protocol for checking in after every jump. Carolina Sky Sports gave you a laminated card when you waivered in, that had you name and weight on. When you went to manifest you gave them your card and after the jump you walked back to the building and your card would be in a rack. If you failed to get in a reasonable amount of time they would page you. Simple system, worked well, no extra personnel required. It was the system they had in place and everyone complied.

  14. Have you ever dealt with them? Just had a 7711-2 rejected because due to some internal checklist they want this statement in line 6. "Authorization is requested in accordance with § 105.21 and 105.25. Well no shit that's why I submitted the form. Not in any instructions anywhere. Ok, makes sense, but don't keep it a secret. Want and authorization to do a demo in the Philly Class B? Better start 6 months in advance and and be prepared for final disapproval the week of. Bunch of drones that most of will do anything to not have to do their job.

    Packing nuances

    Grommet to pin and dynamic corners are quite common in wing suiting. No issues when packed that way for belly. Replying to: Re: Stall On Jump Run Emergency Procedure? by billvon If the plane is unrecoverable then exiting is a very very good idea.
