    Shouldn’t we stay away from animals in a zoo anyways ? Seems a bit overkill to me.
  4. Just read the news that a young lady who was mowing the grass at Parachutisme Montreal was fatally struck by the wing of a landing plane, apparently one of the dz’s pilots flying his private plane on a day off while there was no jumping activity. Not a skydiving accident, but very closely related. some lessons to be learned apparently: communication, observation and visibility might have played a role https://www.tvanouvelles.ca/2021/07/05/happee-par-un-avion-en-tondant-la-pelouse-dans-lanaudiere-1

    Fried chicken.
  6. Would you compare a Concrete Rebound Hammer to an AR15 ?
  7. They have an expanding GDP thanks to all the MAGA shit they are manufacturing for the US
  8. Wings owner here. If I had the choice, I'd personally get a Curv. I am also my own rigger. I prefer repacking Curv's. Other Wings than mine, I send to a friend rigger of mine who loves doing them.
  9. What Tampa Pete said. It's a journey. Take your time. Give yourself opportunities before being to absorbed, and take the time to be perfectly fit again. The skydiving will only be better.
  10. from profile 3 years, 600 jumps and a JFX 96. At least the Reserve is 140ish.
  11. They come by plane and finish the trip in their vehicle…. Parmelin is the actual Swiss President…
  12. No, due to human factor. Plus it would be 95% useless. A distraction with almost nothing to add value to the jump.
  13. Plus it is pretty difficult for felons to legally own firearms... Only good guys with guns.. And law abiding citizens
  14. Actually if the racers wanted to stop, they could have. This is the real land of the free, self responsibility and all that. No nanny state.
  15. Many of the greatest champions had less than stellar first jumps. But I am not guaranteeing you a medal in the World Cup either.... You thought that this would be a physical challenge, you thought that the poker was a mental challenge... Skydiving said : Hold my beer.... If you can, get some tunnel time and give it another shot (or more). If you can't get tunnel time, well I suggest you relax a bit, you almost know what happened, and now you can get back to it. Seems like sensory overload.
  16. Back in the days, gaffer tape was all the hype, and was useful.
  17. Cool story. Hope you and the owner will manage to get in touch
  18. How well are they paid in Canada? Here in Switzerland I believe not enough for the work provided. Yet many health care workers here are foreigners. Lots of French transborder workers, and a big proportion of Canadian nurses. my thought is that every country should take better care for their workers in the medical sector (and the actual pandemic would have been much better taken care of).
  19. Definitely looks like one. Also dated around 2005-2010 given the camera box
