    Canopy options for wingsuiting?

    I don't completely disagree with you. My triathlon is not the BEST tool, it is an ADEQUATE tool. Cheers Craig

    Canopy options for wingsuiting?

    Refreshing to see that MANY on this thread are cynical / realists that are willing to deal with the reality that for aeroplane jumps most WS specific canopies are marketing tools first and flying tools second. I use an old triathlon and I'm pretty sure that any off-heading openings are caused by the pilot, not the canopy.

    "long" WS containers - who makes them?

    interesting looking Vector. Thanks

    "long" WS containers - who makes them?

    Post up photo's of your WS "specific" rigs please? It seems like Sunpath may be the best option, but even the ones shown in photos on their sight don't seem to be very elegant
  5. Good advice. Yeah, the Ranch, DUH, my bad.
  6. I'll be in Manhattan and will be free to jump June 21-23. I'm looking for a wingsuit friendly DZ. I'd normally go to Grave City, Pa to connect with a friend, but he'll be in Euro. Anyone other than Cross Keys I should consider? I'm willing to drive about 3 hours 1 way. Thanks Craig
  7. Other than Sunpath? I know most manufacturers current market a WS "specific" container, but from my limited research, most don't seem to be longer / narrower. Thank you. Craig

    Lucky you. I knew you must be talking about Moe as soon as I read your first paragraph. He is pretty picky about his zipper care. I've been using the main dbag lines lines next to the reserve container orientation for nearly 3 years with good success. just take care to ensure no lines are around the closing loop attachment point and you should be good to go.

    Interesting. Thanks for posting up the images. I'm considering buying a new rig JUST to have the main pud lower on my back for WS.

    Perris jet

    That would be nice. It's been > 15 years since I last jumped the jet and experienced the "safety briefing" by the flight attendants.
  11. Thanks for the input. Seems like the likely scenario
  12. Good point(s) I've been jumping since 81 and have ~ 9,000 aeroplane and 2,000 fixed object jumps. Another passion is road cycling. Racing is not very dangerous. Commuting in traffic is the most dangerous thing I do IMO. and Yes, Skydiving is a high risk activity where many of the risks can be mitigates, but it's still BLACK DEATH Dangerous. Don't fool yourself and think otherwise IMO. Cheers
  13. A friend was out there for an event and told me that there was a "big ol plane dropping jumpers". Chuckwalla is east of Indio CA and is a multipurpose desert racetrack and apparently an airport / DZ. I'm snooping around to find info so I might participate next time. Thanks Craig

    I missed being on that load by about 20 minutes. Was attending community college in El Cajon and a fundamentals of solids exam convinced me to stay in school a bit later than planned. Not real proud of it, but I chose to get back in my car and go home rather than staying blue skies. craig
