    B12 Harness for Jumbo PC

    I have a shorty sleeve for the Jumbo as designed for it. As far as a reserve, I have a strong 26' lopo in a SLCP MIRPS. I am all set except for a harness for the B12 container. Push come to shove, I will direct-bag it out of my MC-1 h & c, but I definitely want to free-fall it. We have a Skyvan coming to Dunnellon, FL in October and I would like to get it jump-ready by then.

    B12 Harness for Jumbo PC

    I am in need of a B4 / B12 harness in airworthy condition. I have a new-to-me Jumbo PC and I need a rig to jump it. I have extended a B12 container but I am in need of a harness for it. Unless someone can suggest an alternate harness/container system for the Jumbo? Thanks in advance! Larry D2238

    NB-7 Escape Parachute

    Poynter's manual covers this a little bit...part numbers, components and packing.

    Deployment Sleeve

    Hi all, I am in need of a deployment sleeve for a 28' round canopy. Even a non-airworthy sleeve will suffice as I can use it for a pattern. (And please, let's not get into discussions of my sanity). If you have a sleeve, please let me know - airworthy, non-airworthy or a pattern. Thanks! Larry D2238

    Modern SL Military Rigs

    Mostly T10D Not so. We use all steerable mains: MC1-1C/D, SET-10's and SF-10A's exclusively. NO T10's. The FAA frowns on non-steerables jumping into crowded airshows. And, by the way, I have never seen a military chest reserve without a pilot chute of one type or another. As far as I know, they have always had them...right from the start back in the '40's.

    Sewing machine recommendations needed please.

    Not to hijack this thread but.....has anyone had any experience with a Singer 401A? Pros? Cons? Not looking to use as a harness machine, just the occasional heavier-than-normal material.

    MC 4 HALO rig

    I have two different mods for installing a CYPRES. Both require a bit of work on the container. Let me know if interested.

    Safety Devices. Which work the best.

    Best safety device? It is that 6" gob of electro-chemical goo between your ears.

    Shoes To Wear, and Foot Fractures

    Wear a good pair of boots until you learn to properly flare and land your canopy.

    Paracommander work drawings

    I have jumped PC's in a long sleeve, short sleeve and a bag. I'll take the short sleeve over the others...much better deployments. I'll take reliability and easy openings over a small reduction in bulk/weight.
