    Damage to Neptune caused by New Mamba

    Sorry for your loss, and hope you can get resolution. I have put over 500 jumps with one of the first Mamba FF helmets alternating between the regular Neptune and the Wave. No problems at all.

    Gravity and Fury Matchup!

    Great competition! Perhaps an 8 way team for Nats? Howabout Perrisinore Gravfury? Congrats to all the teams that competed.

    Tunnel and AFF

    Sure, but they must meet the Performance Objectives of each category/level. Arching is still essential. I'd still require they complete the FJC. Good hypothetical, though.

    Teahing Children to SKYDIVE

    ....too bad there isn't a canopy simulator for them as well. Guess I'll still be out-swooping the lil kids! Kid's Club - great idea to get the parents involved, too! Congrats to Erin!

    AFFI

    A supplement your freefall time, not a substitute. 6 hours of freefall is required. Tunnel time won't hurt, but will help in your slot flying. Get lots of practice with current AFF evaluators.
  10. Dude, You got a good thing going on over there. Keep up the good work! Shark (One of MJ's kids.)

    Congratulations! It's a lot of fun, but be prepared for some gray hairs the next time you look in the mirror.

    How many instructors have given "the talk"?

    Students will figure it out for themselves. Either that or their bank account will dictate whether they continue. If they are having problems I will take them to the wind tunnel and work with them on the ground pre- and post jump. Again, it depends on their desire and basic skills....and their wallet. One way or another they'll figure out if it's for them or not. Have I given the talk? Yes.
