    Skydive Delmarva closed?

    I emailed them yesterday to get some information about jumping there and I was told it was due to "airport access issues." No other word in the email. Guess I will have to find another new DZ to go to. David
  2. I for one would suggest a little of both. I have about 1.5 hours of tunnel time which I dispersed all throughout my AFF training and subsequent A license trials. It helped a lot. Now that I am no longer nerar a tunnel I find I am missing it and it is a lot harder to progress skills in a 60 second free fall jump. So, do a 5-15 minute block then do a coach jump or two and see how much it helped you. Make sure the coach jump relates somehow, if possible, to the tunnel practice. This is how my coach recommended I do it and I think I benefited from it. Now, if only the midwest had a tunnel. Don't forget, it also saves you money in the long run. Just my .02 worth. David

  4. I would suggest a pilot shop at an airport or online. David

    soft pulls or d handels

    I use a D handle right now because it is what I trained with and feel comfortable with. My new rig has the D handle snug up against my chest. I am careful of it but I don't believe it will snag on something with my body snagging also. Use what you are comfortable with. I may change mine to a pillow some day, but I have no reason to. A lot of people I know jump the D handle. Again, personal preference. David

    Skydive Elsinore VS Skydive San Diego

    If you are considering both of them, you may want to consider Skydive Perris also. It is close to elsinore. I just did my entire AFF coures last week with Perris and they are going to get me to my A license by the end of this weekend. David
