    Smaller TI's shooting Handycam

    .... after all my years of jumping I have finally found something that I can say is really challenging being a smaller female tandem master, and that is the length of my arms and shooting handycam. I am using a Chutingstar GoPro glove. I wish there was a go go gadget extension. Someone please invent one... lol So, have any others of you found this harder and what did you do..? If God wanted man to stay on the ground. He would of put roots on them instead of feet. loving life GO-N-UP

    Ear Plugs....

    Really??? She registered 130db on her meter for the full minute of belly-flying free fall? Please verify that. If true, that suqs. Sometimes I wear 'em. Sometimes I don't. If it's really 130db. I'll have to wear 'em all the time. Bummer... Unbelievable huh??? Now that was on someone without a helmet on... I'm telling ya... you don't relize how bad it is.. Thats why I want to inform everyone.. because Tinnintus really really sucks!!! If God wanted man to stay on the ground. He would of put roots on them instead of feet. loving life GO-N-UP

    Yes for sure you can not wear them during training because of the radio, so after you graduate.... If God wanted man to stay on the ground. He would of put roots on them instead of feet. loving life GO-N-UP

    Ear Plugs....

    An ENT has actually been doing some testing at a local dropzone and its proven that freefall noise is more damaging than airplane noise. She hopes to be sharing her research in parachutist when she finishes it. Im not saying airplanes are not bad... also depends on airplane type I spent several years jumping from a 1952 Beaver... very loud, long ride. If God wanted man to stay on the ground.

    Ear Plugs....

    It is caused by the extreamly high decibels in the airplane and freefall. Once a soccer coach blew a whistle and then blew it louder.. he also described the pop followed by the horrible ringing. So im positive and also my ENT is positive its the noise. If God wanted man to stay on the ground. He would of put roots on them instead of feet. loving life GO-N-UP

    Ear Plugs....

    No.. the ringing does not come and go.. it is always always there and I would rather not be able to hear and be completely deaf on that ear.. If God wanted man to stay on the ground. He would of put roots on them instead of feet. loving life GO-N-UP

    Ear Plugs....

    I would just like to remind everyone of the importance of wearing earplugs. I have been in the sport for 17 years and it was my full time job for 14 years. One day my ears popped and I had this horrible ring in my ears and now have severe hearing loss in my left ear and it's caused by Tinnitus. I have tried all kinds of medications and there is no cure for it. I have seen the ENT doctors several times and am currently on a sound therapy. The ATA ( American Tinnitus Association ) is trying to find a cure and until then I will never be able to sit in the forrest and listen to the wind blow through the trees, or the river flow peacefully or just sit in absolute silence. It is an undecribable nuisance that I will have forever.. Just a note to students that you may not be able to wear them during training due to the need to hear the radio, but as soon as you can.. wear them faithfully... and even in freefall..!! those decibels are worse than the airplane.. I went and had a custom pair made at the local ENT doctor and they only cost $75.00 , well worth the price for protecting you ears.. I wish someone would of told me.. Have fun and play safe!!!
