  2. Hold my beer, watch this... What could possibly go wrong. http://www.aopa.org/News-and-Video/All-News/2014/November/03/Sky-surfing-behind-your-favorite-airplane?WT.mc_id=141107epilot&WT.mc_sect=tec Wyp aviation link http://www.wypaviation.com/wingboard.html
  3. Reading your post leaves me with several questions, one of which is... names... Who exactly (names) is behind the "World Team" effort? Who exactly (names) is behind the "P3" effort? Also... "World Team recognizes that the big-way community is in serious need of high quality big-way camps and events that are affordable. Too many big-way enthusiasts and new skydivers entering the scene are discouraged by the upwardly spiraling costs of events. " I think you might find there are many very qualified, current skydivers (competitors, instructors, former big way jumpers) that have walked away due to the self serving mentality and overall lack of integrity some big way organizers have brought to this skydiving discipline. Other reasons may be the lack of time and interest in feeding the big way machine. If you don't continously feed the machine ($), you will not get a slot, regardless of overall experience, currency or past big way success/records. Bigway is fun, but it is the most overrated discipline in the sport of skydiving. It is typically a one point skydive people... The most important skill you need is tracking - and it is very important. My opinion, no one elses.
  4. From the AOPA... ********* Series 400 Twin Otter earns Canadian certification Viking Air announced that its new Series 400 Twin Otter has received its Canadian type certificate. The Series 400 Twin Otter, dubbed the DHC-6-400, may resemble its 60-year-old predecessor, but that’s where the similarities end. The Series 400 incorporates more than 800 changes that modernize and improve upon the original production models. Among the biggest upgrades are the airplane’s Pratt & Whitney PT6A-34 engines, the use of composite materials, the lightweight interior, LED lighting systems, and improved de-ice and air conditioning systems. Read more >> (somewhere on the AOPA web site). *********** You may be able to jump one in about 10 years, unless your a member of the Army Golden Nights.. -KeithM

CBS News: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/05/10/assignment_america/main6471254.shtml?tag=cbsnewsTwoColUpperPromoArea Fox News: http://video.foxnews.com/v/4200913/heroism-at-500-feet Just think, if everyone who has view this thread and associated story were to give just $5.00, it would come to roughly $4000.00. If everyone were to give more or just the cost of one lift ticket. The possibilities. http://www.giveforward.org/hartsock/ Thanks.. -KeithM

Use the cost of lift tickets at your home DZ and make a difference for a fellow skydiver in need. If you choose to make a donation you will have control of what others will see. You will have options of anonymous amount, anonymous name and comments if you wish. If you leave comments, mention you are a skydiver and/or mention DZ.com so he will know his skydiving friends are there. If you have already donated, Thank You very much. Thank you for your time.
