    Howdy, AFF fail on first level 2x

    Like SkyBytch said... If you learn something, then the jump was not a failure. My first AFF jump my instructor had to pull for me because I could not get stable. It takes time, but you will get it as long as you don't give up. In my experience, I went to the wind tunnel for 30 minutes w/coaching and was able to iron out my stability issues for AFF. Welcome to the sky!

    Stage 4 AFF repeat

    I completed AFF last year and I had a little trouble with my legs and body position on my first 3 jumps. After that I went to the tunnel for 30 min and got the issues fixed. It was smooth sailing after that. Just keep at it and don't give up! Blue skies!!!

    Level 4 (stoked)

    Good weather is just around the corner. I broke my arm a few weeks back after having a hard landing. I'm already going stir crazy and it's only been 3 weeks...

    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.
  11. 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
