  1. Good to see you're still at it Jerry!
  2. Not all SAC reserve canopies had mesh treated with process chemicals containing acid. Some did, some did not. This was determined with using the bromo alkali test and pull test using a scale with special vise clamps designed for the test. I find it hard to believe that the (older) rigger did not use the above test as recommended by the manufacturer prior to ripping it from skirt to apex first with his/her bare hands. Or did you leave that part out? BJ Alexander (old rigger)
  3. If I'm not mistaking... This issue started with the SAC (Security Aero Conical) reserve in the 80's and then prompted an AD for other canopies as well like the National Phantom reserve series. I owned and Bromo/pull tested quite a few of both brands and found non to have acid mesh.
  4. I am selling a brand new vector3, pilot188 zpx, smart 175, m2 aad. All components are new and have 0 jumps on them. I am a Master rigger and just assembled and pack the rig last week. You can see my ad for the rig under "complete systems" in the for sale ads. I just tore the rotator cuff in my shoulder so won't be jumping any time soon.
  5. Yes Pat was a great guy and was on a lot of our CRW record training Jumps. Thanks for all the pics and video Pat!
  6. Thank you Ted for what you've done.
  7. James, thank you for driving the bus on this. Keep it going.
  8. Having the competition isn't the easy part. How would you know this? We learn more by having competitions not just talking about them. The FAI wants design and experience. These are some of the nuts and bolts in the matter. People... never hold back! Design and organize your competition. We will learn and share our success and measure our failures to someday go to the FAI and submit to them a complete package for evaluation. There are those who talk and those who do. BJ Alexander
  9. It was a question. A yes or a no would have been a polite answer. BJ Alexander

  12. You have to consider the pilot also. Loic Jean Albert won the overall title at the 2006 World Wingsuit Competition held there in Stupino. He flew none of the above.
  13. James It looks like the Stupino event was quite the success. I am absolutly shocked to see the amount of wingsuit flyers at the Stupino dz. I hope to see you in Russia next year. BJ
