  1. a LOT of the US Dz are also on municipal airports or share the airport with other aviators, you want clear skies as much as possible when you are not the only airborne object around the DZ. Here in OZ we jump in weather that would ground a lot of US DZs, some of our DZs also have a "Cloud jumping manual", which allows then to jump in pretty much any cloud coverage.

  2. 32 posts and no real assistance Try PMing Rosa (Vanillaskygirl) or Gia (Guppie01), both of whom you can find at Elsinore on occasion and both of whom are relatively short (although I am not sure how short compared to you).

  5. dependent upon how fast of a learner you are it will make a huge difference. I have seen footage of some people who after 7-10 hours are flying insanely well. Others not quite as well but none the less much improved on where they were previous. You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS!

  8. I cant believe no one has commented on the GREATEST Doco of all time In 1982 legendary British heavy metal band Spinal Tap attempt an American comeback tour accompanied by a fan who is also a film-maker. The resulting documentary, interspersed with powerful performances of Tap's pivotal music and profound lyrics, candidly follows a rock group heading towards crisis, culminating in the infamous affair of the eighteen-inch-high Stonehenge stage prop.

  13. I had the whole of 2009 away from jumping, I did my 1001st jump in Elsinore in Feb 2009, and my 1002nd jump back home in Australia in March 2010. My Ci came up to me and asked how i felt, asked me about EPs. checked my gear. Asked me what sort of jump I was doing. I told him a 2Way, FF, he asked Who with.. I told him who, he said. Have fun, pull a little higher and do some Canopy drills. No probs. ETA, I was bloody nervous on the climb to height You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS! How's yours doing?
  14. Ask a lot of "long term" heavy headed camera flyers what they are jumping. With the extra weight on their necks a lot of them tend to fly canopies that are more forgiving You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS! How's yours doing?

  23. This is scary. Please talk to people before you try anything...even if it seems to you to be a non-critical function. Spend some time with somebody to teach you about your gear and how it operates. My thinking too, near 300 jumps and this question?
