  2. Adults be adults ..... some times they do scummy things but it's their business... they have to live with their actions. So it's not for anyone else to condemn or condone.

    Economics of buying NEW rig

    cool. Me, I brought a brand new Harness (know it fits and was the colour type etc... that I wanted).. then I put a 2nd Canopy and Reserve in - this alone will save you a couple of quid.. I also brought a new Cypres (cus they're hard to find 2nd hand).

    Just begon, still need some advise..

    Welcome to the Sport. The helmet'may' depend upon the country that you jump in. Some places you need a 'B' (I think) to wear a full face one - Usual caveat .. best talk to your local instructors.

    Hi 1) I use DogTag insurance - never had to claim (that's when you find out how good these companies are ) -so fingers crossed aye? Might be worth dropping the Emp' Office a quick e-mail with your questions - get the gen from the horses mouth , as it were.

    Noob alert: "Traffic rules"

    As a paraglider pilot, I've been saying this for years on here - but Skydiver gods think they know best - even though it's good enough for the rest of the aviation community!
