  1. Thanks for the clarification; I see what you mean. CSRL wants $1900, not including tests and docs. But I'd be using my DZ's facilities. So, somewhere in between.
  2. Mark, That would be much appreciated, and yes, it's only fair to give credit where it's due. Please send to [email protected] WRT the fee, the DZO will be covering their expenses, but yes, that sounds about right. Thanks!
  3. Does someone have a rigger training curriculum that they'd be willing to share? I have the old Parachute Rigging Course manuals, but I'm wondering if there's anything better/newer available. Not looking at getting into rigger training as a regular thing, but my DZO has asked me to mentor people who show an interest, and I don't want to waste their or my time. Thanks!
  4. Different graphic, but hopefully useful. PDF version of an image that UPT provided to Parachutist a while back. It blows up a lot nicer than a JPG. F3-Rig_Components.pdf

    B-12 AD?

    They're still making containers with B-12 snaps, so it's not an age issue. Probably just someone with a messed-up concept of professionialism. Okay, thanks everyone!

    B-12 AD?

    Has anyone heard about an AD or SB prohibiting the use of B-12 snaps on existing sport or emergency rigs? Just heard about a rigger refusing to I&R a rig with B-12s on the leg straps. I understand that some people don't like them, but an AD is a whole different matter. Thanks!
  7. So here's a question for every skydiver, regardless of your experience level: Without giving names, what characteristics do you most value in a Coach, Instructor, or Examiner? I'm especially interested in anything that made the difference between staying in the sport vs. quitting. Thanks!

    T5 Manual?

    Also, does anyone know whether these containers were used by the Marines in WWII?
  9. Hi, Does anyone have a manual for an Army T5 personnel parachute? Got a replica that I was asked to set up for museum display and I’d like to set it up correctly. Thanks!
  10. Agreed. Also, even if direct-ish human contact accounts for 90% of transmission, we owe it to one another to take reasonable precautions to address the other 10%.
