    need advice on landing

    What I found that helped me regarding looking ahead, not down and keeping height awareness for flare timing was to obviously look ahead at the end of the field or landing zone, but use your peripheral vision to judge your height. For instance, my home DZ has a tree line off the side of the field. So I use the trees in the edge of my vision as a height indicator: see leaves, don't flare, see trunk (i.e. no more leaves) it's about time to flare as our leaves stop about 12ft or so off the ground. And when I say "about time to flare", I don't mean immediately stab to your crotch, do your nice normal two-stage progression. My situation may be different than yours as far as surroundings, but if you can find something like that to use, it helped me a lot.

    Any idea?

    None. I'm not that into the racing aspect of it, I just have fun. After all, it is just a car, not the sum of my existence. My cars don't have any bumper stickers on them, just Marine Corps tag frames. I'd very much encourage you to go do an intro trackday with one of your Vettes. I did trackdays for years on my bikes and it really amazes me what these machines are capable of and how little of that ability we use on a daily basis. Don't worry about "racing", it's just taking your car to its natural environment! In every man's life he will be allotted one good woman and one good dog.

    peregrine video

    from the sound of it, ultra-light and thin lines plus very high wing-loads. Sounds like a good choice for snapped lines or a cracked neck!

    Container question

    It would also be terrible to lose the entire jump season with their 9 month wait list! on topic, I was told by Altico that a pad could be added to my dolphin to add bulk to the pack tray to accommodate a smaller canopy.

    How to extend the glide on my SPECTRE

    Because it slows your descent and you ride the glide longer? In every man's life he will be allotted one good woman and one good dog. That's all you get, so appreciate them while the time you have with them lasts. - RiggerLee
  11. That was before the GC burned up. Believe Hans is sending the Skyvan he's brining in for the spring to Fitz in its place. No, I'm sending him the Skyvan when we're done with it. Either way, I'm looking forward to it! In every man's life he will be allotted one good woman and one good dog.
