    Logan Paul AFF Cutaway

    I take this back after seeing the video of his chop. I might have too and definitely would have if it was an AFF jump. Yes, he IS a tool but maybe he can get many more people interested in our sport too?

    I just want to know why the answer at perris wasn't "just no"

    Open letter to all DZO's

    Sure seems like a porter to me, sliding left door, single turbine, and a tailwheel.

    Open letter to all DZO's

    This is addressed to all DZO’s. It’s in response to a recent video of a student cutting away far too low, that made the internet and was removed a few hours later. This video is excellent training material that should be shown in every FJC from this day forward. Someone did everything wrong and got incredibly lucky. Students need to know the trouble they can get into. Luckily for us, this is the internet and it still exists: https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=607_1516923160 Stop hiding gnarly video. Shit happened, was captured on video, no one died, and now its training material. This is a dangerous sport. Shit is going to happen, and when it does the community needs to learn from it. No tandem or AFF student is going to go to the other DZ because some video of a tail wrap on your aircraft exists. They wont find it and if they do, they don’t know what that means, or the risk to the passengers and aircraft. Theres a video of a porter stall spining for many thousand feet on the internet. Call that DZO and ask how much his tandem business suffered when it came out, I’ll bet he didn’t notice. Sure, if you have video of a student almost fall out of the tandem harness and live or a tandem elevator ride, maybe delete that one. But when we have a sport fuckup on video, that should be public knowledge.

    Need recommendations for first main canopy.

    My Sabre had a pocket slider and opened great 98% of the time, out of the 50 or so jumps I put on it, I was beaten once.
