Thoughts on head down tandem? in Tandem Skydiving December 15, 2013 davelepkaQuotesets a poor example Like the TI snugging up his legtraps right before climibing in the plane with the free ends hanging loose? Or the student not being hooked up or with a snug harness while the door is open for the 4-way jumprun at 10,500? Or the hunk of drouge hanging out of the pouch when the TI knew full well he was going head down with the student? Or the unsecured straps beating the shit out of the student while freeflying? Bad example? Nah, it's Europe! Stupid Americans could never understand their level of refinement and culture. Many more issues than just a head down jump. Yet we are too stupid to see how cool this was! Stop with the PM's now. The jump, was dangerous, skill levels be damned. MattAn Instructors first concern is student safety. So, start being safe, first!!!
