    heaviest tandem passenger?

    Shouldn't this thread belong in the Swooping and Canopy Control forum?

    Be careful. Officially, USPA membership is not accepted in France, and you may have to join the FFP (about 90€, and the need for a doctor's certificate stating you are apt to practice freefall). Some DZs may look the other way, but not all do.

    Ecole de parachutisme de Chateau-d'Oex

    Amazing group of people. Their smiles are contagious, and you feel like you belong right from the first minute. Safety conscious, yet they want to make sure you have a great time. And the views over the lake(s) and the Alps is simply breathtaking. Andreas & Co., you guys have created a gem. Will go there, like on a pilgrimage, on every trip I make to France. Very, very cool DZ.

    What would happen?

    Much faster reaction to toggles/risers input (which means, among other things, faster loss of altitude). Which is fine when having the situation under control, but: a/ look at the incident thread (as I am sure you already have many times). b/ in my extremely limited experience, one aspect of landing that is overly overlooked when people do downsize is the "oh! fuck me!" landing. Downwind in someone's backyard, crosswind in a vineyard, etc... Standing up 100 landings in a row does not mean one have full control of a canopy. I realize that pretty much every time I jump. In any case, BillVon's list is a good indicator of what one should be able to do before downsizing. Once again, from an extremely limited experience. Be safe.

    Flaring

    There's been many threads about this, including one currently active in Safety & Training. Best thing to do: have your instructors look at your landings and comment on them. Don't worry, you're not the first one with this problem.
