    Skydive Danielson

    Skydive Danielson rocks. The staff and fellow jumpers are approachable. It takes a bit of self confidence to skydive. But the atmosphere at Danielson is welcoming to all regardless of experience level and without much ego. There's also a healthy attitude toward safety. The DZ is very communal without cliques or pressure to progress faster than one's abilities. I don't get to go as often as I want. But whenever I return it's as though I'm family. The rental equipment there also appears to me to be in better condition than a lot of other DZs. I didn't get licensed there. But I think it's a great place to do it.

    That's an interesting comparison, especially as I'm a geek for the history of the space race. As far as development is concerned, I think an interesting consideration is that in that era there appeared to be very little difference between HALO equipment and civilian skydiving gear. If you're reading any of Annette O'Neil's recent articles on 50+ years of skydiving in Parachutist magazine you'll see many early guys started with military surplus rigs. However, as disciplines have become more refined we now have vastly different systems for MFF and civilian skydiving.
