    Level 4 (stoked)

    Welcome Bobby! I'm pretty new also. I just received my A license last month. I'm no expert by any means, but I had a similar problem with my first few AFF jumps. Do you have a wind tunnel near by? I spent 30 min in the tunnel after AFF level 3 and after that I had no problem with staying stable and on heading. Does your AFF instructor video the jumps? Post reviews of each jump with my instructor also helped me improve my body position. Overall, just keep jumping and don't get discouraged. The more you jump everything just starts to "click". Just my two cents.... Blue Skies

    Great beginner canopy for new A license jumper?

    Thanks to everyone who has responded. I had previously spoken to our rigger and they seemed pretty vague on their advice. Pretty much just something at 1:1 that is cheap, but has no holes. I made 3 jumps this weekend with a Pilot 210 and it seemed like a good choice as well. I guess I have a lot of choices as long as I keep my WL at 1:1 or less.
  3. Looking for some advice on what type of canopy to purchase for my first rig. I just completed my A license. I have 22 jumps on a Sabre 2 210 and 3 jumps on a Volt 185. My exit weight is 190lbs. I'm looking for a canopy around the 210-190 range and have been leaning towards a Sabre 2, but those are higher on the price range. I was looking for more input on if there is a specific canopy that experience jumpers would recommend to a newly licensed jumper to progress on. Any input is appreciated! -Jacob
