  1. Iown nearly all Brian's videos. They make sure to explain the whys as well as the how-tos . When combine with a good canopy course they are definitely helpful.
  2. Minneapolis MN (actually Minnetonka is getting an iFly tunnel. At the moment its just a massive hole in the ground with an iFly sign on the construction fence. My question is whether or not it will be good for practice or not. The info I have seen is that it will be a 12 ft tunnel. My prior experience has been in 14 ft tunnels and Paraclete. I do FS and this size does not look big enough for 4 way. Anyone with experience to share?
  3. With the high cost/value of tunnel time I have found that the getting the best coaching possible only makes sense. I have found that the right coach enhances learning immensely while mediocre coaching can cause frustration.
  4. I have flown in seven different tunnels so far and this newest tunnel shows how design and execution have evolved. But the tunnel alone does not guarantee a great experience. Fortunately the staff matches the tunnel in being excellent. I found a friendly front desk and received excellent coaching. Can’t offer any suggestions for improvements.
  5. I went with Bev because I have a local dealer who could get the measurements right. The people I know with Tony Suits seem to like them. The biggest key is being honest about your needs and dimensions and letting the professionals dress you for success.
  6. I jump a Firebolt and a Pulse, the Pulse openings are more predictable, but the Firebolt flares are incredible. you pays your money and you takes your choice.
  7. I have checked Parachutist events. It seems heavily weighted towards Coach and Instructor courses.
  8. I agree. But it does make it tough for us northern jumpers to plan ahead,+
  9. If you can find an established dealer to measure you the chances of a good fit and fall rate go up.
  10. I have been trying to plan a winter trip from MN. It seems like event listings on the major DZ websites have gone untended , and Facebook has not filled the gap. A trip usually requires 6 weeks to 10 weeks to plan and make arrangements. Sadly the DeLands and Eloys no longer seem to provide much info that far ahead. If I am missing a resource, please throw some light on my ignorance, otherwise this may become the Winter of my discontent.
  11. Track Guide: 0.5 second pulsating tones between the 1st and 2nd warnings help keep track of altitude separation of tracking groups or waves.
  12. The tracking tones on a Quattro are another feature that reveals its value after using it for a while.
  13. The Landing pattern tones are helpful in learning to fly a consistent pattern making your turns at consistent altitudes,
