  7. Hi I am not super experience infact I have only been skydiving for about 6 months but what I have noticed it that the more often you jump the better the learning curve. Thus doing 3 jumps a day is better for muscle memory than 1 jump every 2nd day. If I were you I speak to my instructor and ask him how he feels about the gaps between your jumps. I know that in South Africa we have to jump at least once every month if your a student or A license(not sure about B lic) other wise you have to under go a refresher and if you haven't jump in the last 3 months then you have to start from scratch.

I must say it's great to know that there are so many people that feel the same way about this sport as I do. I also happy to say I have never been part of a sport were people are so help full.

  22. Both time landing in no wind approached from the same side infact both landing were on the same day? I was realy confused. Small fall faster ? _______________________________________ You are unique, just like everybody else ...
  23. Hi The extra .04 is because nobody make a 140 canopy hence the extra. My instructor has just warned me not to be hasty. I have only had 6 landing that weren't on my feat this was due to flying backward on 285 skymaster. BTW why does a 170 hornet glide futher forward than a 190 Hornet with me under it. _______________________________________ You are unique, just like everybody else ...
  24. Hi people I am have done 40 jumps my exit weight is 70kg *2.2 =154lbs. This would mean I need a 135 canopy. Now my question is would it be safe for me to persue the correct wingloading versus the radicalness of a smaller canopy. Keeping in mind that I am still very new to the sport. One of the intructors at my DZ said just watch out for the very popular words "wingloading" seeing that even though 135 would give me a 1.14 loading which optimal. The differance between a 170 loaded at 1.1 and 135 loaded at 1.1 is day and night apart. Please give your opinions .... I looking for all view in order to make the most informed choice. P.s. I am currently borrowing a 170 Hornet which I love to bits. I have done +-8 jumps on it. I would buy it but people have said I'll get bored with it very quickly. _______________________________________ You are unique, just like everybody else ...
  25. Hi I am currently flying a Hornet 170. I only have 40 jumps and have had all stand up landing except one down wind landing due to other canopies. I love the canopy to bits... it not quite a heatwave but it performs well and it lands well. The canopy also doesn't have weird quirks. That my 2c Cheers _______________________________________ You are unique, just like everybody else ...
