    Do we need AFFIC improvement at this time?

    You know what? Fuck it. There's no point in putting up with DSE's asshole, arrogant bullshit. My reality and yours are quite different. I think we're all Bozos on this bus. Falcon5232, SCS8170, SCSA353, POPS9398, DS239

    A good story about student radio not working

    What in the hell is wrong with you? Are you mentally unstable? Take your crap somewhere else. You stalk me and are trying to kill another thread. It's childish. You have no business being a greenie. WTF do you have to do with AFF anyway. Stick to your self-designated "wingsuit instuctor" business. You obviously have nothing to add for AFF. You just want to tear down. Go away. My reality and yours are quite different. I think we're all Bozos on this bus. Falcon5232, SCS8170, SCSA353, POPS9398, DS239

    No, not missing that at all. Agreed Setting the bar higher is the goal and that has nothing to do with expense. Holding the "world" to a standard is best...and that has nothing to do with what your standards are. Got anything besides the S&TA bit that will help improve? Thanks in advance.

    just graduated AFF!

    What to work on? -Did they give you an A-license Progression Card? THAT'S what you need to work on. -Please thoroughly learn the knowledge-based information. I can't emphasize that enough. -Get as much canopy flight learning done as quickly as you can. -Drill, drill, drill emergency procedures. And welcome to the Big Blue Skies!

    New. Collapsable pilot chute uncocking itself.

    Rarely seen that where it actually uncocks the PC. Color disappears? yeah but that doesn't mean it's not cocked...it means you should check it for sure. My reality and yours are quite different. I think we're all Bozos on this bus. Falcon5232, SCS8170, SCSA353, POPS9398, DS239

    Do we need AFFIC improvement at this time?

    Yes. Exactly. OK..that's how you feel. I'll ask: How many pre-course jumps do you want? Which do you think is the better idea: - turning them out on the students with only a limited number of AAF-related jumps. - turning them out on the students with a defined time for additional practice and experience? You're right, there is not a lot right now that can be done about how the techniques are implemented in the field. OK, I get you...considering costs and back-to-back, what suggestions do you have to improve the training? Yes, this kind of stuff is what I meant about the tool". You sound like nobody but you has any right to question anything. Knock off the arrogant, holier-than-thou BS. ??????? You must be talking about I/E. Not the topic here. Do you even see the irony here? Can you show us where anyone in this thread has done that besides you? They also do research - poll, gather facts and opinions, review and finalize and draw up proposals which is what is going on here by people who believe a change is needed. If you have done some groundwork in this area, why don't you share it with us instead of complaining that others don't yet have it? We are trying to get something done here. If you have help, please input, otherwise, please quit wasting bandwidth with the negativity. My reality and yours are quite different. I think we're all Bozos on this bus.

    Currently, the training is the AFFI Pre-course. Yes, you should be already prepared when you take the AFFIC. My reality and yours are quite different. I think we're all Bozos on this bus. Falcon5232, SCS8170, SCSA353, POPS9398, DS239

    Coach Jump Definition

    Simple. You don't. Coach jumps are about the STUDENT, not the Coach. Hmmm? I'm not sure I agree with you Pops... Sounds like he wants to be a coach? Desire is 98% of the battle. Maybe he needs to switch DZ's? Maybe he needs to work closer with his DZO? Or, maybe he needs to jump more? I just hate to advise him to give up or say "there's nothing for you here". That's not what I was saying nor what the OP was saying. It's that WE serve the students needs. The students don't swerve the Coach's needs. Nothing more than that intended. Maybe I should have said "can't" instead of "don't". The faulk04's DZ apparently may not get enough Coach jump opportunities for every Coach to meet the requirements. What could we do anyway? One step further though, along the lines of the thought you brought up. I'd have to ask about motivation. What is your motivation to get the coach rating - to help students, or for the money? You don't have to guess the appropriate answer, right? Hence, WE swerve the students needs. My reality and yours are quite different. I think we're all Bozos on this bus.
