  1. Anyone has an idea for the DZ who does most tandems per day ? Per year average? Heard a number which sounded vastly exaggerated for Skydive Mexico with a regular 500 daily.

    Movember 2019

    As you might know, the month of November is a month dedicated to men’s health, visually represented by growing a moustache. Several topics are approached regarding men’s health, specifically the most important taboos for men : Their reproductive system. none of us is immune to the risks of testicular and prostatic cancer, reason why I decided to join the Movember movement. Let’s talk about it, raise awareness, try and limit the risks. All it takes is a finger in the butt. Which by the way can be fun. You can donate on my Mo’space https://ch.movember.com/en/mospace/14205041?utm_medium=app&utm_source=ios&utm_campaign=share-mospace and also if other DZ. commers already have a Mo space, we can join forces on a DZ. com Mo’Team help à bro, grow à Mo.

    Ever been unable to find PC?

    Happened to me on a Vampire 2, was current jumping, current on the suit. after a group flight where I used all my physical capability, grabbed the fabric over my PC. Couldn’t pull. Tried again, same mistake, same result. decided to go to my reserve. As it happened rather high, nobody at the DZ realised that there was a freebag getting lost. this was one of my most expensive jumps.

    I might have people interested to buy it. PM me your contacts and date of manufacturing

    Is it the techno 115 your rigger doesn’t want to pack ?

    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.

    Yet aviation is mostly worldwide in feet.
