  1. He is on the way to my place....he misses my sheep!
  2. Wow, nothing like a feel good human interest story.You have way too much time on your hands. They do have medication you know?
  3. No/Yes, It is on the RWS web site. For the 34 tandem fatalities shown. only three were sub 1000 jump tandem instructors.
  4. If I told you what I think and who I think this applies to I woulld be banned in about 2.3 sec.! By the way......Barmy Badger Backpackers???? Are we talking about the one in London, England?

  7. Really? Are you saying that there are jumps that do not require both? I don't think so! I think you are confusing a "Class I" medical with a Class III medical. There is a huge difference between the two and only a Class III is required by the FAA for doing tandems.
  8. Yeap, probably has NEVER happened.NOT! And no one has EVER had to make an emergency exit.Oh, and don't forget that malfunctions ONLY happen under optimal condition and when you expect them to! Just remember that it is what you “can’t imagine” that will bite you ass!
  9. It varies by state, sometimes state law. In other cases it can be addressed by the organizations bylaws or rules and regulations. Most states have some type of "Sunshine Act" that addresses it.
  10. Most states require that the membership be notified of such meetings. They are usually announced as an example: "The board will be meeting in Executive Session to meet with legal counsel". Then the results of the meeting are published but not the discussion. I disagree. If the meeting meets the criteria for executive session then it should not be made public to the membership even though any decision the board makes during that meeting can affect the membership. Again, I am only talking about specific circumstances that meet the requirements and not the meetings that are for running the day to day business.
  11. In addition to the suggestions above, another reason responsible drop zones require a day jump is so that you can see what any out landing areas that you may need to use look like. Would you want to land out at night and not have any idea of where you are landing or what you may land on?I also recommend that you take a cell phone with you.
  12. Most states allow this type meeting under certain circumstances. The governing body can have an executive session for such item as pending litigation and discipline. Only the results of the meeting have to be presented to the membership. As an example, say that as a member of an organization I take legal action against them. Should I then be allowed to attend the meeting with the board when they meet with the attorney to discuss the issue? No, of course not. Any organization has to have this type of mechanism to protect the organization as a whole.
  13. When I had mine done I decided against using cadaver because of the higher rejection rate. They took bone out of my hip. They told me that my hip would hurt worse than my neck, but it didn't bother me at all.
  14. Only if they are a Master rigger. You might also call Wings (Sunrise Rigging) and ask them to give you a price. It might be cheaper or the same and it is better if the factory made the change.
