    San Diego 9/12-9/18

    Them's fighting words in places like Elsinore, Eloy, Chicago, Rosharon, Raeford, Deland, and Zephyrhills.

    No Pilot Chute Belly Reserves

    In the movie <I>The Gypsy Moths</I>, one guy does a sequence where he opens four or five chutes at the same time. He uses the technique described above.

    DZ in Aruba?

    How do you feel about wind?

    Jumping in metres

    On the hit United States of America TV show, How I Met Your Mother, there is a flashback to a concert by the Canadian singer, Robin Sparkles. At the concert, behind Robin was a banner that read, "Consider Questioning Authority, Please." Robin got it.

    Heard good things about https://www.skydivemesquite.com. Never been there. Too far?

    BIGWAY SKILLS CAMP WITH CORE

    Is there more information than this on the site? Can't find it. Also, if you cannot tell from the screen capture, the month is February of next year.
  7. If your priority in learning how to skydive is scenery, you can try PISC on the North shore of Oahu. They are very good at what they do. On a very clear day, you can see five islands. Rare, but it happens. Other good places include: Skydive Chicago - But you may have to look at corn on the way down. Also, they run their Summerfest the end of July, beginning of August. Probably not the best time to try and go through AFF. Don't know. Give them a call to confirm. Skydive Arizona in Eloy, AZ - More desert, but you will be looking at it from the other side. Very hot in the summer. A good late fall, winter option. Skydive Deland in Florida - You can see the ocean, Daytona Beach, possibly Cape Canaveral, and at the right point in the day when the sun sits just right, you can catch its glint off the Eyesore on I4. Spectacular. They are all large DZs with full time schools and good instructors. Good luck. Hope it all works out for you.

    Packing Practice

    First fifty or so jumps on my new canopy, I psycho packed it. Seemed to offer more control. Here's a video that may help, but always discuss with a rigger, never take advice off of the internet, go to the PIA conference before you do anything new, yadda yadda yadda
  9. But he said, "my friends." Doesn't that ensure it is not a vitriolic response? And if you don't agree with me, then I say, "Good day, Sir!"

    Extreme engineering

    Pretty valid. My undergrad is in civil and my graduate degree is in aeronautical. I tell non-engineers that both disciplines rely on Newton's F=mA, but in civil A must always equal zero and in aero, it almost never does. Gross approximation of the truth, but you know how non-engineers are. If you have the option, I would recommend taking an elective in a Computational Fluid Dynamics course if you can. I know Scott uses it in his work and it is the future. Wind tunnel in a box.
  11. More protection on landing. Less snag hazards. Yes, controlling fall rate. The miltary has a saying, "Train like you fight." Works here too. Less prone to covering a handle? Old timers here will remember a post from Sangiro when his shirt did exactly that. And he knew what he was doing.
  12. Not familiar with this terminology. What does the "IAD student" part mean?
  13. What does YouTube pay per view? I heard it was $7 per thousand views. If true, that means they have pulled in over $100k from your video. Is it worth getting a lawyer or taking them to small claims court?
