  1. Here in Statesboro, filled up Laurel's car at $2.67 parked her car, got into my car and drove to the same station and was hit with $3.22 per gallon.
    The gas station attendant said it may go up to $4.00 by tomorrow.
    Wondering what's happening with AV-GAS and JET-A prices and what's going to do to lift tkt prices ???:|

  2. I live one hour south of Augusta, that would be really nice for a bunch a people including my wife and I. But, have you look at an aerial photo of Daniel Field? Have considered the proximity to Bush Field? Have you......?????
    Besides economics that are lot of other things to consider and believe me, just because is federally funded airport does NOT mean that getting permission to use it for skydiving on the regular basis it's easy.
    PM me if like to discuss it further.
    I do what Katie said...I drive to Monroe or to St. George.

  3. Based on the description of the incident above and previous comments:

    BIG lesson number ONE:
    If you cutaway, you WILL pull the reserve handle.
    It's like: exhale, inhale...there is no alternative.

    If you CAN NOT pull the reserve handle, then don't cutaway and use what you have to slow down and pray for the best.
    It's basic...it's from first jump course...it's a survival move...it's simply basic...it's purely basic...
    If a jumper cutaway and do not pull the reserve, I would have some serious talk to understand why and help the jumper evaluate his/her place in the sport.

  4. In case your not satisfied with your search in the UK, there are dropzones in Brazil where the staff can communicate in English.
    Go to the Brazilian Association
    website:
    http://www.cbpq.org.br/index.php
    or to the Azul do Vento website(no desrepect to others)
    http://www.cbpq.org.br/clubes.php
    and find the one that can help you.
    Do your search and keep in mind that your adding a difficulty fact (language) to your AFF course.
    How about Spain ?

  5. There are good places in the UK for you to take your AFF course, check the British Parachute Association website to get a list of drop zones and call them, explain your situation, they should be able to assist you. Here is link:

    or better, yet:

    Good luck...B|
