    Jumping in Europe

    Where exactly in Germany are you? 5 hours form Klatovy has dozens of DZs. Sone hints. http://www.toratora.eu/--> great events. DZ Radfeld in Austria only a few weekends in Oktober check pink.at for times. Nice Mountain scenery. http://www.skydivefano.com/ Italy very nicely located at the adreatic sea. Not sure when there are good events, we alos go there as a group in August. https://www.mountaingravity.ch/ Hopefully they will have that event again in 2020. Did not happen in 2019 and 2018 due to construction on the airport is what i heard.

    Simple Video triming tool needed

    Thanks everyone, i finally found the time to try all three. I lke VLC the best, i already have it but did not realize it can cut as well. I only have one two tiny issues to solve. I want to keep the original file name and i cannot skip forwar while the new video is recorded even though it is mentiones in the instruction but i will figure that out. Thanks everyone.
  3. Hello I am looking for a simple software to trim the files from each jump. It should be done without recoding the whole video again. Does anyone have any tips? Should be for windows 10.
  4. I think it has gotten better with the realisation of the risks involved in skydiving. Looking that the incident reports though there are still plenty of incidents where a larger more doctile canopy could have made the incident less severe or not happen at all. I am not just talking about missjudged high performance landings. I don't see meaningfull change in that area given that is is still the biggest single cause for accidents.
  5. Yes, but most skydivers choose not to learn from incidents and don't lessen the danger.
  6. Maybe you should also consider that a smaller and especially more eliptical canopy will not open as reliable as your bigger more conservative canopyhavin. Most of the time you will get away with having to go for the reserve but there are things that can go wrong with emergeny procedurees aas well. This may apply to less experienced jumpers more than to routine jumpers.
  7. Not neede in Germany, not even when i jump in Italy with my german license.

    Mountain Gravity in Switzerland.
  10. Google maps tells me its 1:28, but if the Autobahn is clear i can make it in just under an hour for the 160km.

    Italy dropzone for weekdays?

    Skydive Fano is open during the week in August. They may also still have their visitors from New Zeland sometime around this time of the year, then they will also be open. Check their calender. It is a gread Dropuone, i am there every year in August. It is a bit far from Pisa though.

    Skydiving in Stuttgart, Germany

    I was not aware that there was a time when the Vigil was not allowed in Germany, but i checked the German Parachute Federation and you are right. They used to be banned in 2004 for a couple weeks. Should not be a problem anymore i think i have seen Vigils in Germany since but they are not that common. Where do you plan on jumping?

    Gear Suggestions for Tunnel Flyers

    Actualy the carbon fiber shell of the skyhelmets is the reason why i bought the Skyhelmets Fujin, but you are right last i heard the lead time is still 8 months.

    Gear Suggestions for Tunnel Flyers

    I would disagree that you cannot go wrong with the G3. It is a helmt from 2011 as you say but it is just plastic, there are a lot of full face carbon fiber helmets offfering better protection. Still a good helmet, but there is a reason fiber helmets are the material of choice for motorcycles if you want something really good that lasts.
  15. I know of tow cases, but both are mains. One was a wingsuit jumper who went unconcious on opening of the canopy. He suffered a broken pelvis and some other bones as well as internal injuries. He just barely made it but is ok today. Through all the medical examinations because of the injuries they also foud a tumor that they sucessfully removed, it may habe been the reason why we got unconcious. The canopy was medium sized for his weight. Another was a jumper that impacted under a big canopy (170+) on asphalt, unfortunately he died. Both incidents where in Germany.
