    Cloud canopy

    In the late 70’s I put a little over 500 jumps on a Strato Star. For it’s time it was a very versatile canopy. I started doing Crew with it and made my first 100 or so demos with it. My idea of a fair fight is clubbing baby seals

    Digital Altimeter

    It's old school, but it's easy to read and the batteries never go bad. My idea of a fair fight is clubbing baby seals

    Fun to fly low bulk canopy. Pulse vs. Pilot ZPX

    No, that's why so many jumper get injured or die under perfectly good canopies. My idea of a fair fight is clubbing baby seals

    A license jumping camera....

    At 30 jumps you have a skydiver who is not very good at skydiving. Add a camera and you a skydiverwho can't skydive very well shootings pissing poor pictures. There is a reason for the recommendation of 200. _ My idea of a fair fight is clubbing baby seals
  9. A little more info about this area: http://www.sisterscountry.com/Recreation-and-activities Jerry Baumchen Hey Jerry, If I read them map right, they are not getting much wiggle room. One oof the quotes stated that it was a "public" airport I think it is a private airport with public use. Not sure what effect that will have but like you said the ODA appears to be dealing fairly.

  10. Freedom Parachute Team was using high end HT's with throat mics around 2002/03. I used the same set up when did testing while working for AERO. My idea of a fair fight is clubbing baby seals
  11. It was first done in the LA area in 1982 by Larry Walters. A movie production company recreated it flying out of Apple Valley Airport. My idea of a fair fight is clubbing baby seals
  12. I worked for Joe Crotwell's company AERO. Most of are contracts were Government test programs. We could fly a King Air to YPG with a pilot and at least two crew members. We would do as many as 4 lifts a day with 4 to 6 drops per lift, at altitudes from 500 agl to 25,000 agl. we would provide everything. They would pay for rooms and meals sometimes for 3 or 4 days. They paid up from chock to chock. And it was cheaper than using military personal and planes. My idea of a fair fight is clubbing baby seals

    Are jumpsuits that important?

    A jumpsuit will have the greatest effect on how you fly more than any other piece of gear. But it's your choice. Don't buy one and see how it works. More than likely you will end up jumping alone. My idea of a fair fight is clubbing baby seals
