    Collegiate Boogie Jan. 12-15, 2007

    Yo there were some videos playing at the boogie and one had this song I want. The chorus was something like "oooo lordy, flying so high..." Does anyone know what the song title/artist is? Dixie HISPA #56 Facil Rodriguez "Scientific research has shown that 60% of the time, it works every time."

    For GFD: Remember those who fall before you And those to yet fall past Let them be a reminder too true That this life happens fast Watch over us from blue skies And guard us from black death Watch o'er us with angel's eyes And let your soul find rest.

    The I need a ride, Dublin thread

    I could be convinced to swing by ATL if people still need rides Thursday evening, it's a little out of my way but not too bad. Besides I like racing on that 16 lane speedtrack known as 85. Send me a PM if you still need a ride. Dixie HISPA #56 Facil Rodriguez "Scientific research has shown that 60% of the time, it works every time."

    Current TV BASE pod

    Hey guys if you get digital cable tune into the channel called Current TV. It's powered by Viewer Created Content that is submitted over the internet. They are usually short 10-15 minute or less clips and I've been watching since it got added to our digital cable. There is alot of REAL investigative reporting, the kind of thing you won't find on the networks anymore. There is also alot of cool stuff about sports and leisure activities that are out of the mainstream. I was tuned in tonight when a pod submitted by a BASE jumper was played, it was a guy from out west and they showed some cool footage from MOAB and a jump off of a bridge. I've got it DVR'd but if you guys get the channel they usually replay a pod from time to time over a week or so before they take it off. You might be able to catch it on their website http://www.current.tv because they've been streaming more and more of their pods lately.

    Airline jet fly under during freefall

    Thank you all for the lesson in FAA airspace restrictions and classifications, I didn't know about all the types and whatnot. I just assumed that when they radioed the jumpers out warning they would vector large airliners out of the way. I still believe that if the plane vectored in from the direction I think it did that it would have been nearly impossible to see, but I am probably wrong. I started jumping at a cessna dropzone and we were taught to use the long ride up to check for surrounding airtraffic. I had since stopped doing that when I switched to a bigger dropzone with GPS and all that hitech jazz. When I make it back up to Chester I will mention all of your concerns about the exit delays and I will of course increase my own. To Billvon, I happened to read your sticky post in this forum and it says beware giving out generic information because you don't know who reads it. X seconds giving Y feet of seperation is not necessarily true because you must take into account Z airspeed and A windspeed.

    Airline jet fly under during freefall

    Monday morning quarterbacking is fun isn't it boys and girls? I'm sure you would have all seen it no matter where it was in the sky, even behind the plane. One day I hope to be a master of the sky like you all are. Dixie HISPA #56 Facil Rodriguez "Scientific research has shown that 60% of the time, it works every time."

    Airline jet fly under during freefall

    Ah I forgot that you can tell windspeed and the speed of the airplane on video. Once again, the count between groups varies but I stick with what the senior instructor/jumper/pilot recommends unless I am not comfortable with it. I had good seperation from the jumper in front of me both in freefall and at opening time. You were not there, I was. >you check your ground spot . . . Yes. You must do that to avoid landing out in a bad area or punching a cloud. > maintain eye contact on the group previous to your own to make sure >you have good seperation. . . Uh, no. You can look at them, but I can guarantee you I know what you will see - them falling away. Looking at them won't help your separation any; only time can do that. The time between groups varies day to day and sometimes jump to jump depending on a variety of conditions. Jumping everytime after a certain number of seconds is not the best solution. You can judge horizontal seperation by maintaining eye contact with the groups in front of you. None of that 45 degree nonsense either. >but you also manage to check every vector around for aircraft who should > be notified by radio that there are jumpers in the airspace of a > permanently filed skydiving dropzone. I'm glad to see that you pointed out a 45 degree cone is a reasonable check of the airspace around, I feel like I did this to my own satisfaction.
