  1. Hey all, i have not jumped for over 2 years, i have 160 jumps, mainly on a 200 maveric and a few on a 170 which i loved, each time on the 170 my accuracy was spot on to the dot. I dont know what to do now. i am scared shitless of jumping but i must because it is all i can ever think about and it is who i am!! how should i get back into it? to force myself back in to it i have just payed for a custom made wings container, custom reserve and custom sabre 2 150 main. I know that i should not start jumping my 150 straight away. i bought a 150 because i know i will want to downsize again as my experience is gained. so why waste 5000 us. Should i get straight back on a 170 or go back to the 200 while i get my nerves up again. I know i do not have many jumps but i learnt fast and safe. i did a course in commercial skydiving and did 160 jumps in 5 months. i went to this school for 40 hours a week and learnt all aspects of skydiving(meteorology, spotting, and safety over and over.) my 60 th jump was from 18,000ft and most of my others were from 14,000-16,000. Some one give me advise and help me build up my courage. i weigh 78kg's and am 5'9ft. i forget how to work out my wing loading, can someone help please. Well thank you if you took the time to read this and hope you all have blue skies when you wake up in the morning. Cheers, Bigway.Quote .Karnage Krew Gear Store .
