    Correct tracking anb booties technique

    a well performed track is a result of the body-position in general, not neccessarily adding bootie surface. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxh6DMMxhOs and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxh6DMMxhOs show perfect execution. To your thoughts of adding surface: the performance comes from the de-arching and catching air at your legs while the whole body is in the shape for sliding forward and falling slower. pointing the toes outward will not push you further, but make it more difficult to de-arch. try it on the ground. lay flat on the packing mat and try to press your shoulders towards the ground, then lift your lower back with toes pointed straight and then try it with pointed outwards. feel the difference ....
  6. how about that .... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0QKqth2Jfo make it full screen on a tablet and start it from the outside by a helper? Ok, not very amazing and only for 11k feet and ends at 3k, but for free ;-) Or film a student altimeter training device from 12k > 0 and play that video on a tablet something similar to that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x61mv-oGWtk

    Hurricane Factory Prague

    Very, very, very professional staff and facility. Always superfriendly and helpful. Cheap prices, summer-discounts and a great restaurant. Locker-rooms are huge and clean, also showers included. The sportflyers are separated from the firsttimers, so everyone has its own space. The timeslots are clear and the infosystem is perfect. You can watch the flyers via LiveStream on their Website to see what is going on. Hotels are available, cheap and in good quality around the location. Tesco-Mall is in walking distance and offers 7days/week all things you need. Prague is for flyers and family or friends a great place to be.
  12. ich sehe die checks jedesmal im freifall. ab und an fragen die gäste beim videoüberspielen auch, was der da gerade macht. selbst beim einweisen am boden vor dem sprung ist das bei nahezu allen ein fester bestandteil..

    Ground Launch vor der Ausbildung?

    ich seh das wie die fortschritte im freifall. gleich nach der ausbildung zum coach ist doch der beste weg, oder? lasst die leute zu anfang basic seminare im kappenflug machen. solange es noch keine tunnel für kappenflug gibt, muss man viel theorie vermitteln und den hauptaugenmerk auf praktisches üben legen. könner durch erfahrung im realen umfeld... wer noch keinen plan vom umgang mit schirmöffnungen, stress nach der öffnung und flug-/landeeinteilungen hat, der wird vom GL nicht viel profitieren. rein rechtlich gesehen müssen beim GL auch gewisse auflagen eingehalten werden. schult lieber die beginner in der ausbildung und kurz danach, damit sie sicherer werden.
  16. 1st: learn to crawl before you try to run.... 2nd: pointing a gun to your head and pull the trigger is more efficient (personal view on the jump-history)

    if someone needs a "sign for good luck", he should keep this to himself. place a sticker on your helmet or your shoes and you have it with you on every exit.... to the argument with base-vids: they are inside of the cams and on the tapes, not at the exit or on the way to them. me personally, I do not like stickers or tags, neither in aircrafts nor at exit points. if you have the strenght in your mind, you will not need visible signs (for others) on the outside. of course is a sticker different to a large tag, but the main reason behind both leads to the same effect. someone not involved or involved in a way we all are not interested in, is able to see your personal "signs". a better way to preach for good luck would be, take some garbage left by others with you on the way down. leave the site in a better way than you´ve found it. and "better" here means: cleaner. just my point of view.

    Sidewinder 2

    I jump Skysystems for years now (since 1996). Just ordered a sidewinder 2, after having jumped a sidewinder 1 for several years now. It took only five days to get them from USA to germany (three different helmets for our camera flyers). perfect finish, superior quality. the flip-up lens is perfect and gives all the benefit I have in my Oxygn. only the cam-eye has to be installed, but this is a minor problem. for me, the sidewinder 2 is one of the best choices for filming tandems and formations.
