    Skydive Grand Haven

    Small family dz atmosphere with an AMAZING view. The climb to altitude takes you over Lake Michigan and Grand Have State Park and some of the most popular and beautiful beaches our state has to offer.

    Skydive Hastings

    We are aa student focused dz but we'll do all we can to get funjumpers up too.
  4. I'm in the middle of trying to make a jump plane out of a 182 right now and I can tell you that, if I had it to do over again, I'd buy one that's already done. In fact, there's one in the classifieds right now that looks pretty bad ass and it's already on your side of the pond. http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/classifieds/detail_page.cgi?ID=134574 Good luck!
  5. I agree with alot of what you said and I see the benefit of having a standardized ffc that we all use. I just don't think requiring a special instructional rating to teach it is necessary. Why not just make a little booklet out of it and have the Group Member dropzones make everyone that's flying a wingsuit sign a statement saying that they've reviewed and understand the material? I'm in the middle of opening a new dz right now. I don't want to sound rude, but if the uspa is going to make it a rule that I can no longer teach people to fly wingsuits out of my airplane until spot or whoever says I can, I think I'll pass on the group membership.

    USPA Rating Changes Effective 10/1/08

    Thanks for posting this. #10 says "Correctly answered at least 80% of the questions on the USPA Tandem Instructor Final Examination." Are questions online somewhere? Is this something a course director could do over the phone/fax or do they have to watch you take the test?

    taking a passenger...

    I just did it this weekend in a Zwing Eagle. It's pretty easy. My rider was a small chick 140lbs with gear. Our avg was about 95mph. I used about the same spot as I would have without her and it worked out fine. At pull time she just hopped off and pulled normally. The only thing that sucked is the Eagle has webbies. I didn't notice it during the jump so I'm not sure how it happened, but they gave me some pretty good blisters between my fingers. Have fun!

    All this talk of low pulls

    I thought all this low pull shit went out of fashion in the 90's. Nowadays, if you want to be dangerous and cool, you're supposed to hook it in.

    Video: "When Good Times go Bad - Part 3"

    Got mine today. Definitely one of my favorites from this year. Good work! You could have put out a little warning about that last song though. You should have heard me trying to explain that one to my 12 yr old.....well honey, this video came from one of those "Canadian" jumpers... Thanks again,
  11. I wonder where that came from? If there's a flock around here, I'd sure like to find it. We're working on it though. I just ordered a Z-wing from Tony at Skyfest. He made me a dealer so hopefully I can get some others hooked up here. Plus I still have my S3 and there's a borrowed Classic I at my DZ that people can use. F16Driver on here has a Firebird, but he's always too busy playing with his airplanes to come to the DZ. Hopefully someday Michigan really will be known for its wingsuit flyers.

    Thanks man. And thanks to you and Victor for a fun night out. Mike and I both had a great time. You guys have a sweet playground over there. I can't wait to visit again. Tony

    Just to rub it in...

    That was bullshit. I hit redial from about 7:00 until 8:10. Twice in there it rang, but they picked up and hung up right away. Got through to comfort inn, but they won't just rent you a room. You have to buy t-shirts and dinner and a bunch of other crap along with it. $350 for just Fri. & Sat. Fuck'em. I'll rent a minivan and sleep in that.

    Instersting Condensation Effect

    That's a cool shot. Is that a reflection of you in the TMs goggles?
