  1. Hi Keith, Aye, aye, sir. Jerry Baumchen PS) My all-time fav: Christa Speck - Sep '61
  2. Hi Paul, I believe that we each march to our own drummer. And, I do thank you for your thoughts. I first joined PCA in the Summer of 1964, and I was a member for 50+ yrs. I am not a member now & no longer have a dog in this fight. However, I am of the opinion that this 'so-called' museum is & has been a complete and total waste of the member's money. One only has to look at the track record of broken promises, wasted money, etc, etc to see this. Now, back to your regular scheduled programming, Jerry Baumchen D-1543
  3. Hi Jerome, I know nothing about the laws in Switzerland regarding parachutes. IMO, here in the USA, when I return the parachute to the owner after having packed it, worked on it, etc, I am no longer responsible for it. I cannot control what the owner or anyone else would do with the parachute once it leaves my hands. It would be airworthy & ready for usage when I return it to the owner. Just my $0.02 in this, Jerry Baumchen
  4. Hi stins, About 10 yrs ago, my son did a tandem in New Zealand with a TI shorter than you. Jerry Baumchen
  5. Hi Joe, Well, unless you are Boeing. Jerry Baumchen
  6. Hi betzilla, No reason for the $25/$35 cost when you make your own for about $5. Jerry Baumchen
  7. Hi Wendy, Available here: Jerry Baumchen
  8. or what it would have in it Hi sky, I don't care what Prof. Harold Hill says, my game room ( with enough actual room ) would have a pool table. Jerry Baumchen
  9. Hi airgord, I had lunch with Ted yesterday. He said he is not doing any outside work; only the gear owned by the dz. PM sent to the OP. Jerry Baumchen
  10. Hi OWB, For the trivia folks: Nate got that D number when you could request any number that had not been already taken. In other words, that is the number that he wanted. Jerry Baumchen
  11. Hi ksg, Are you considering suicide? Yes or No, I will no longer offer my thoughts. Jerry Baumchen
  12. Hi ksg, I am not a medical person. However, I do believe that death would instantaneous. At the very instant that you strike the earth. Jerry Baumchen
  13. Hi Joe, You are about to enter a crosswalk but you see a car speeding at you. Well, you do have the right of way. The driver is breaking the law. But, if you are dead, does it really matter? Jerry Baumchen
  14. Hi Peter, I think it was about + 8 yrs ago that they ( the German ownership ) made a strong effort to crack into the North American market. They took out some full-page ads, sponsored some jumpers, etc. I know that they gave a rig to Bryan Gile as his dad is a good friend. They would have had a FAA TSO to sell here. Jerry Baumchen
  15. Hi Peter, From memory only ( so it is not perfect ), I seem to recall a version of their manual in which they had a copy of the letter from the FAA granting them the USA TSO. I do not have a copy of that 'memory' manual. Jerry Baumchen PS) Personal opinion re TSO-life: I think the best way is somewhat how National now does it. They say that they will no longer offer any service for any of their equipment that is more than 15 yrs old.
