    UPS left rig in truck for 3 days

    The Atom problem was not due to heat. Just shitty material. They tried to cover themselves with the heat and humidity excuses but it is simply not true

    Packing innovations

    I believe there is a packing machine in France, for student size canopies. Does the job after brake setting until just before inserting in dbag.

    Container comparison

    I would get them in the order you mentioned. Talon Vortex Wings I am a rigger and prefer working on Rigging Innovation gear. They also offer a MARD (optional) if this is part of your selection process. I am also a Wings owner, and it is my least favourite rig to work on.

    Jumping in metres

    I believe that most skydivers in the metric world do not consider themselves aviators. Moreover due to the precision of our instruments and the decision speed we need, it is better to jump with the units you are most familiar with. In case of mixed units jumps, do the rough calculations on the ground prior to jumping, and agree on altitudes during the briefing.

    Jumping in metres

    Yet aviation is mostly worldwide in feet.

    First jump with the wifey!

    How can you guys celebrate with a kiss pass with full face helmets? good times are gone
  7. Crossfire2 wouldn’t be your best choice. Not recommended under 1.4 wing loading

    Which canopies are more prone to collapse?

    No names, but under loading a canopy (as in “below designed flying parameters “) makes it more turbulence sensitive

    New CYPRES Cutter Head Design?

    This is a sleeve which was designed I believe to prevent damage on rigs like the Mirage. And it is several years old already. But I could be wrong edited to add : page 24 of this link https://www.cypres.aero/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/991205_CYPRES_Rigging_Tips.pdf
  10. The French were the only ones I knew of needing a medical for sports jumpers.

    Riser design & toggle fires

    Pretty sure Deyan can do that. All my risers were modified like that by Colin in Empuria.

    Riser design & toggle fires

    Parachutes de France toggles. Best, bar none. 1 pin up, 2 tabs down.
  13. It seems that they have disappeared. Even if they were rarely used, there were valuable threads in there. Is it possible to reactivate them ?

    Boogies in Europe during summer 2019?

    The Facebook page says cancelled for 2019.
