  1. Is there a standard incident form that dzo's/s&ta's fill out for the USPA when an incident occurs? How detailed are the questions already on it? Could they be improved? Blue skies & happy jitters ~Mockingbird "Why is there something rather than nothing?"
  2. Near misses should be evaluated as well.
  3. So sorry to hear this news. Blue skies & happy jitters ~Mockingbird "Why is there something rather than nothing?"
  4. I'm a late-comer to this thread and have only read the first page of it, but here's my answer. I believe what the authors of the 4 New Testament gospels and Paul said about Him: 1- that He's the Son of God who died for my sins in order to restore me to a relationship with God (or "reconcile" me to God)..., and 2- that He is God in human form (He said, "I and my Father are one" and "He who has seen me has seen the Father.").
  5. Lloyd, you've got me wondering now... i don't wanna' waste my time or money at a tunnel that's not gonna' be beneficial. But Raeford costs almost twice as much, and it's pretty far away from where I'll be. I wish other people who've been there would see this thread and chime in...

  6. Hi, PhreeZone! I've been in touch with AAC already and they're running-- their winter hours are 9-5, Wednesday through Sunday, and they said they can run in practically any kind of weather. OK now-- the example you gave is more along the lines of what I was thinking to begin with. As far as I can tell, at AAC there's no hourly rate-- it seems to be a straight $10 per minute. $300 for a half hour... $600 for an hour... In this case, sharing time with someone is of no benefit unless the other person is flying with you (a two way or whatever). Right?

  7. OK. Thanks. Have you ever flown at AAC? I'm going to be in that area in January and want to work on my body position and basic bellyflying movements. What if you get someone to share time with and you're not really as good as the other person. Won't that turn out to be a waste of time and money for the other person and get them ticked off? Blue skies & happy jitters ~Mockingbird "Why is there something rather than nothing?"
  8. So you're saying that in order to share the time and cost, you have to fly WITH someone-- you can't just, by yourself, get some coaching, and then let the other person come in and do their thing while you wait your next turn? Blue skies & happy jitters ~Mockingbird "Why is there something rather than nothing?"
  9. THANKS, labrys. That answered my question! Blue skies & happy jitters ~Mockingbird "Why is there something rather than nothing?"
  10. OK, so once I get the experienced skydiver rate, which will be stated in terms of an HOURLY rate, do I need to find someone to share the hour with in order to get a sort of "discount" on the hour? Blue skies & happy jitters ~Mockingbird "Why is there something rather than nothing?"
  11. So if they advertise by the minute (or two minutes), I really need to write and ask them what exactly? (I'm not referring to any one tunnel in particular--- I'm looking at various ones-- AZ, CO, NC, etc) Blue skies & happy jitters ~Mockingbird "Why is there something rather than nothing?"
  12. What if a tunnel doesn't advertise a cost per hour, but just says something like $50 per 2-minute flight? Blue skies & happy jitters ~Mockingbird "Why is there something rather than nothing?"
  13. Could someone fill me in on what it means to "share" tunnel time and what affect does it have on the cost of flying? I've done a search of this forum, but can't really find a definition, per se, just people using the term a lot! I have an idea of what it means, but just not sure. Thanks!

  14. i love this. this has certainly been the way i've had to approach it! i don't usually have a lot of trouble with the landing pattern, but i do have trouble with the speed and timing of my flare. i've survived all 84 of my landings and i still don't have it figured out. i've stood up about 15 of them. hopefully i'll keep surviving until i do figure it out.
