  1. HI! Just thought I'd put in my 2 cents worth on this subject, and by doing so I will leave this forum and never return. I met Jacko about 4 years ago, and seen him do these things over and over again. Jacko is one of the BEST skydivers I have ever met, be it while instructing, coaching doing a tandem, freeflying, belly flying or what ever else you can do in the skydiving world, including flying the planes. At no point did I ever consider what he did to be unsafe, on the video in question the student is safely in the harness, and yes there is a lot of seperation between the student and Jacko, but all 4 conector snaps are in place and the drogue is out. I am a Strong and Vector/Sigma rated Tandem instructor, and I jump the Strong system all the time, you can ask anyone that has used this equipment and they will tell you that the students harness system slips all the time no matter what you do, something that doesn't happen on the verctor harnesses because the webbing is doubled. I have had a student snug to me and in freefall had them slide away (the lower conector slip). I have done the move in question in the past, and because of this situation stopped. I think that people should stop and think before they write, they should check information and maybe even play with a Strong student harness and see the slipping problem I am talking about, all the hardware on a strong student harness slips, including the leg straps on the Tandem rig itself... Thanks. Yonatan Ran

  8. Hi everyone! The last weekend of this month (29-30th) is the season opener here at Cross Keys... Our planes, the Skyvan, Twin otter, Caravan, Bi-plane and choopper are going to be here that weekend, and this season opener is also going to be the official opening of the new Freefly school CK1, If you want a good time and good flying, come on out and play! SWEET! Yonatan
  9. Feel the love and share it! True I jump and work in Cross Keys. I jumped at the ranch and had a great time and would not hesitate for a second to return there. I love you all..... Enjoy the sky no matter where you are. But be careful. Yonatan CK1 Freefly.
  10. With out a doubt I would say Cross Keys. With the King Air, Caravan, Skyvan and next week Otter, there is always a load going up at Cross Keys, no matter what day it is, weekday, or week end... I would definitely go with Cross Keys. SWEET! Yonatan
