    HELP!!! Jumping in Austria.

    An interesting question, where does a non-resident US citizen fit in the rules? From the SIM "E. MEMBERSHIP USPA membership is required of any skydiver cleared for self-supervision at a USPA Group Member drop zone, except for non-resident foreign nationals that are a member of their own national aero club" and "FOREIGN PARACHUTIST means a parachutist who is neither a U.S. citizen or a resident alien and is participating in parachute operations within the United States using parachute equipment not manufactured in the United States."

    Hearing loss and Skydiving

    You keep saying the same thing and asking for help. People have responded. Do you not like the answers you are getting? Click the link below to see your activity. You might consider how a person can lose credibilty by repeatedly asking the same thing over and over and ignoring the answers they get. https://www.dcredibilitym/profile/147960-aiman-ai/

    Site Launch Gaffes

    People complained about the function of the blue dots not being obvious and the offer was made to replace them with a very obvious yellow unread button. A number of people agreed so that is what we have now

    Dropzone Site Launch & Bugs Megathread

    Google's indexes are for the old site. Since the old site is no longer accessible, clicking on the link they supply to the old site goes nowhere and you end up getting redirected to the forums. It may take some time for Google to index the new site. Have you tried using the search function in the site itself? Look for the magnifying glass at the upper right of the menu bar

    a question about old cutaway systems

    I'm trying to remember wooden toggles. I think mine were cloth but I might be misremembering. Or could those have been R2s? Is this the Rodriguez of Spanish Fly fame? No wooden parts on the R2s, they were all velcro and nylon. That was one on the differences between the R2s and the R3s that had a small piece of clear nylon tube to give you something to pull on. The R2s just had nylon to pull on. I recall the tabs were made from sewn tubular nylon so you had something to grab but the R3s with the tubes were an improvement. The only wooden toggles I ever had were on round canopy steering lines

    a question about old cutaway systems

    I remember when I upgraded to R3s from shot and a halfs. Boy did I feel safe. And R3 looked snazzy compared to R2s ;-)
