  1. Yes, the parachute operates seven days a week.
  2. After the in plane interviews were completed a 50-60 Y/O female passenger looked to her TM and said "I don't care what happens when we leave this plane, I just want to get to the ground!" I turned to her and replied "Maam, I personally guarantee that after you exit this airplane you will get to the ground, one way or another!"

  4. Gabe, No one here can really provide the answers you seek. The masses here will most likely recommend you discuss gear/canopy choices with your instructors, as they know you best. I will say this however in regards to your canopy "I don't want a pure speed rig, but I don't want a slug either" Learn how to fly the slug first!! Folks that rush with their canopy progression without seeking proper instruction and coaching are prone to breaking themselves. Please take the time to read the canopy articles here: http://www.dropzone.com/safety/Canopy_Control/index.shtml Good Luck and stay safe,
  5. S.IM. 5-2: Recurrency Training Contents: A. Students B. Licensed skydivers C. Changes in procedures D. Long lay-offs A. Students Students who have not jumped within the preceding 30 days should make at least one jump under the direct supervision of an appropriately rated USPA Instructor. I would inquire politely why the DZ requiring the additional level.

    Help! School Project on Skydiving

    Well are you in high School or College? You have not filled out a profile so you will be considered a "Troll" in most jumpers eyes. If you are truly interested in our sport and what makes us tick, why not travel out to your local drop zone and ask questions in person? If you over 18 (at most DZ's) make a skydive and that will provide even further information. Other than that I would not expect an outpouring of support for your research.

    Cookie Blackbox HC5/HC7

    No cut out for the eye piece, camera comes out of the box very quickly. $800 camera, $150 wide angle lens, yes its worth it. It also reduces snag hazard to a degree.

    Flite Suit camera suit

    Yes they do, it is a very nice set with bomber free fly pants and then a jacket, the jacket can either clip into pre-sewn rings on the pants or your hip rings. very nice set up either way, several vidiots at the DZ fly them and like them alot.
