  1. I have a Specter 135, works fine on openings and landing. Suggest you go big like your planning too.
  2. Parachute Labs in DeLand makes the Racer. It will fit you perfectly.

  4. Randy Schroeder passed away on April 20th 2020. He was well known and respected in the skydiving community. He served as an USPA Regional Director where he was an advocate for helping small Cessna dz's among many other issues. He was a very talented S/L, IAD, AFF and Tandem Instructor plus an AFF + Coach Examiner as well as an Instructor Examiner.
  5. I'v said this to the owner of DropZone dot Com and a few of the Moderators, "this new format, just because it's new and different doesn't mean it's better.
  6. From: Tampa Bay Times. "Eating dinner Friday night, Mr. Deal choked on a piece of filet mignon, said his fiancé, Ruby Drash, who was with him. They tried the Heimlich maneuver with no success. Mr. Deal was 88."
  7. Arch Deal, longtime WFLA news anchor who survived parachute fall, dead at 88
  8. When Betty spoke the Men listened.
  9. I was on the National Skydiving Museum Committee with Bill Ottley and Chris Needles from 2002 to 2006. From the beginning of the Museum and Hall of Fame project all agreed no financial burden would be on the USPA Members. The Museum would stand alone financially from donations and charging admission. Building cost started at $5,000,000 on FREE land next to USPA HQ in Fredericksburg Virginia. Now we don’t know what the building will cost on land that’s not free in a third location in Orlando. Giving our dues money to the International Skydiving Museum building should be voted by the Members, not by the BOD who are supposed to represent the Members.

  10. Firebolt main from Parachute Labs in DeLand Florida. It's the softest opening canopy I've ever jumped. Call them (386)734-JUMP (5867).
  11. Al King was elected by the USPA BOD to the National Director position.
  12. This is not a USPA museum; still the trustees want USPA money to stay solvent.
  13. Right there at your Home DZ Perris. https://square1.com/product-category/helmets/
  14. Check out the “Firebolt” from Parachute Laboratories Inc. in DeLand Florida. I have a Firebolt 164. The Firebolt is the best all around canopy I’ve ever jumped since the Cruiselite by Para Flite. It’s designed for soft on heading openings and easy landings. You won’t have any problems with a Firebolt of any size. http://plabsinc.com/
