    Are Ifly encouraging bad body position?

    It's really hard to judge the situation without video... As WT Instructor I can say that the "I am a skydiver!" category of WT firsttimers is often the most difficult to deal with)) It's quite often when they start demand to increase the speed while trying to push the air and lift up at the same time which makes them very unstable so: - you can't give them more speed coz - they can fly normal at setted speed and it's make them even more stiff and unstable IMHO if there is enough time (more than just 1-2 minutes as firstimer) instructor should be able to deal with it ether slowing down\lay student on the net\relax them or get out and talk etc... But again people are different so as the situation so without video it's really hard to make a conclusion))

    Questions about tunnels

    It's quite variable (for example if there is a camp - almost no free time slots) So it's make a sense to check exact dates\month if yo want to make a plans You can write me PM if you are making such a plans so I give you more specific advises for your situation needs Why drink and drive, if you can smoke and fly?

    Questions about tunnels

    It's from 0:00 till 9:00 in FlyStation but there is a possibility to fly at such price (2700eur for 10+1hr and 1350eur for 5hr +15 min) even in a peak time if there is an empty time slot in the bookings at the day of flight) FYI day time here is 3100eur for 10+1) Why drink and drive, if you can smoke and fly?

    Short suit or not?

    I would reccomend to have a cople of suits If you can't - than full suits, but if you mostly jump in a hot weather, then shorty may be more comfortable (but seriusly man, suits shouldn't be only one;) regarding WT - they flown often and quite good Why drink and drive, if you can smoke and fly?
  6. A rig make the difference even for experienced flyer Yes we have 4-5 mockups and use them (or special covers for real rig) for training Why drink and drive, if you can smoke and fly?

    Mirrors 4 viewing body position

    Yes One glass of our wind tunnel is mirrored For most cases - quite enough and way more convenient than outside setup) Why drink and drive, if you can smoke and fly?

    Delayed Reaction Tunnel Injury

    Well, take a coach or at least fellow skydiver/bodyflier You need some basic advise/correction I mark the part where your attempt failed (if it was planned as written - it was fai;ed at the planing phase already) It should be "upper body over" not "feet under" and keep control on those legs!

    Increasing Fallrate in Tunnel

    The difference in speed between baggy suit (especially for student suit which often made using rough material) and skinny suit for sure can be more than 5% If you are planing any close to regular training with 4 way team - there is absolutely no sense to do it in a student suit and even less sense to make such weird modifications) Why drink and drive, if you can smoke and fly?

    Conflict of Interest?

    So in this situation there is a Conflict of Interest indeed) Why drink and drive, if you can smoke and fly?
  12. NWPoul

    Conflict of Interest?

    1. It's wide common practice AFAIK it can be regulated somewhere (so you pay to manifest, manifest pay some part of it to your coach) but IMO in most WT it's to be deal between customer and coach 2 Conflict of interest means that your personal interest in opposition to the interest of organization you are employed to... In case of private coaching I see win-win situation, coach money is a good motivation for instructor to find customers who will pay WT for the flight time Why drink and drive, if you can smoke and fly?
