    Life lessons learned from this sport

    This isn't a life lesson , but more of a career path. After Many years in the skydiving business, I cured myself of the delusion that I wanted to own a DZ again. If you have a good DZO, show him or her your appreciation for what they do. It is their passion for the sport that keeps them going NOT profit. I am not talking about the tandem mills, I'm talking about the ones that go out of their way to keep skydiving safe and fun for us. I don't think GOOD DZO's get enough credit for what they do. Sorry for the early thread drift.

    Seneca as a jump aircraft

    A seneca is a twin engine , retractable landing gear version of the Cherokee 6. Basically the same airframe. How many cherokee 6's do you see flying jumpers? Now throw in 2 engines and retractable landing gear and you have added weight and more stuff to go wrong mechanically.

    Cessna P206 Wing External door latch

    I think Skydive Rick's in Ohio has latches like that on his planes. He might be able to help you.
