  1. Can you hear farts with your earplugs?
  2. Can a moderator please move it to Bonfire?
  3. Yves Rossy, the original Jetman , is now HVTOL (Human vertical takeoff and landing) Next huge step will be transition to horizontal (easier) and back to horizontal for landing which might get trickier and ballsier enjoy the short video
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. My wild guess for PISA is Parachute Industry of South Africa
  7. 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.
  8. I might have people interested to buy it. PM me your contacts and date of manufacturing
  9. Is it the techno 115 your rigger doesn’t want to pack ?
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Yet aviation is mostly worldwide in feet.
  15. How can you guys celebrate with a kiss pass with full face helmets? good times are gone
  16. Crossfire2 wouldn’t be your best choice. Not recommended under 1.4 wing loading
  17. No names, but under loading a canopy (as in “below designed flying parameters “) makes it more turbulence sensitive
  18. 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
  19. The French were the only ones I knew of needing a medical for sports jumpers.
  20. Pretty sure Deyan can do that. All my risers were modified like that by Colin in Empuria.
