  1. Just as what the title of this topic is saying: "What's your favorit logbook app and why?"
  2. And on the other hand some people say: If you find a job you love, you'll never work again.
  3. Maybe as many of the skydivers out there, I'm thinking about working in a wind tunnel to be that badass tunnel rat. Pros: - Working with something that I love - Possibility to fly much more than what I'm able to now. - Spending work time with like-minded colleagues instead of whuffo colleagues. - Saving money through stop buying tunnel time Cons: - Varying/uncomfortable work times - Lower income - It's not as stable and economically safe job as the one I already have. - Monotonous work tasks (flying the first timers) Have you thought about it your self? what have you decided att the end and why? Do you have any thoughts which can help me choose which way to go?
  4. As the title's saying. I'm looking for a simple and easy video editing software for Windows. I need the software to cut and edit Tandem videos. What would you recommend ?
  5. I believe that Russia has the cheapest tunnel time in the world, and the Russians have many flying legends and most of those work as tunnel instructors. The visa though can be a bit bothering but it doesn't cost much and it's not a prob for EU citizens. Flystation St petersburg and Freezone Moscow are 2 of the most famous destinations. I've never been there but I'm planing to do it in the end of this year.
  6. Wow Dolphinka, your first attempt is way more better than my first hour of trying to sit haha. I don't know if it's quick in general or not but it's quicker than me anyway. In the tunnel that I train in the kids are often the staffs children. At age of 14!! here you are not allowed to jump if you are younger than 16. I've done the static-line as well, I don't know I love it and I have no planes to quit one day Skiing is good specially if it's mixed with parachuting aka speedriding
  7. Oh I wish that you start skydiving, with the skills that you collected from the tunnel, skydiving is gonna be even more fun for you Yeah using strength is just a disadvantage but it's an instinct reflex for some ppl. 3 hours just to sit still, I still can't do almost anything while I'm sitting except going up and down with bad stability. And yeah legs and arms do whatever they want to do in the tunnel Good to hear. You know sometimes you meet kids in the tunnel who fly like flying should look like, and then comes the feeling of (ok... what I'm exactly doing here!?) but I'm gonna keep working on it as much as possible
  8. I totally agree that Yoga does help. I have a hard unflexible body with a bit shreded muscles which it was more like a disadvantage for me in this sport. I started doing some Yoga from Youtube with focus on stretching and flexibility, I hope it would help. I've never tried VFS though my coach tried to make me dock with him on some positions with the same purpose that mean, to fly with muscle memory. I'm 29 btw good to hear that you are 3 years older so it doesn't feel like I started too late
  9. Nice, it's going fast and good for you as well. Level 3 wasn't that easy for me because of the sit flying it took me about 3 hours just to be able to sit still, and I've never sat in the sky before. I agree it's hard to compare to other fliers, everyone is good at something and less good at other things. The physic is not everything, I don't have any problem with strenght and I'm a Crossfitter, my coach used to tell me that I'm using too much strength against the wind instead of just relaxing and go with the wind flow. Ppl with agile bodies got som more advantages in this sport I guess
  10. Wow! good job, it seems like it's going very well and fast for you. How many skydives do you have? and how old are you if I may ask?
  11. What tricks, flying positions and skills have you become able to perform after your first 10 hours in the tunnel? The purpose of the question is to make some references to compare with, to know if one’s training is achieving the desired results. I know that everyone learns at a different pace, but I still think that it must be a general guideline to trace the progress keeping in mind the individual differences between fliers. I have 10 hours coached tunnel time, and now I’m able to fly comfortably as Class A static (European system) flier with belly carving from the dynamic part plus basic sit flying abilities. In the IBA rating system it’s level 2 plus sit fly position and belly carving. Is it good? Slow? Normal? What about you?
  12. I was exactly in your situation the last year, and I bought the Pro-fly suit. It's really worth the money, specially for a beginner, you can fall fairly fast as it's a tight design of a suit. I've done about 120ish jumps with it sofar and it works well. I'd say go for it, and invest the rest of the money that you could have paid for a more expensive suit in jumping tickets. At the end it's all about the flyer :)
  13. Something you might want to try one some solo practice jumps is to line up on something straight, a highway or something, go into a gentle track, at least at first, and do all of your steering with your knees. It's way to easy to forget about using your knees in RW. Sounds interesting. Any special thoughts about the knees position?
  14. The thing is that we jump from a Cessna 206 (extremly small door) in my DZ which goes up to 3000 meter max and the formation is often 3-4 ways speedstar, which makes the formations falling speed as fast as a fall rate of a solo jumper, in this case, I must be fast and accurate to catch up with the formation.
  15. Hello sky friends, I've been training lately to dive at a speedstar formation, which I think is a good skill to have. The problem is that I can't maintain a good steep diving angle towards the formation, which causes a spiral like flying pattern, which most of the time, leads to that I'm flying faraway above the formation. Do you guys have ideas on how to train properly to get to my slot on time? Is there any wind tunnel exercises which can help learning this skill? I've done 150 skydives. Should I have taught me this skill by now? or is it normal not to be able to perform good dives at this level? -I've met skydivers with 60-70 skydives who have almost no prob with diving at a formation.
