    Gear Sharing

    This topic has been discussed before, although not in the context of listing it on a website to rent. More for just renting out your rig on the DZ. If you do a search, you will find the threads. It's not the best idea for skydiving gear IMO. Lots of liability #1, rigs cost a bundle usually so what happens if it gets stolen, what about in the event of a cutaway or damage, verifying the credentials of someone that wants to use your rig, doing stupid stuff with your rig, etc. Thats why a lot of dropzone's have rental rigs that jumpers can rent. Just my opinion.

    Finally did my first jump!

    This thread is a good one to read. http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?post=4537402;sb=post_latest_reply;so=ASC;forum_view=forum_view_collapsed;;page=unread#unread Bottom line, I would not take any meds, just have your instructor hold off on the crazy turns. I got sick on my first tandem, but once I started jumping with my own parachute, it all went away. Kind of like driving don;t get car sick because they are driving. Next time, be the driver!

    Extreme motion sickness after parachute deployment

    If you get car sick easily, this can happen due to the "twist and turn" to navigate. We as instructors can make the turns aggressive or gentle. He probably didn't ask and went with the aggressive turns. Next time, just ask for gentle turns and be vocal about what you want to do for the parachute ride. Remember you are paying for it!

    Rigorous Gear Inspection Training?

    Your instructor should go over the key parts to the parachute system and a basic knowledge what what each component does and how to do a proper gear check for the MAJOR items. If you haven't gotten this yet, you are probably just starting and there are things that your instructor wants you to learn first. The training should be more in depth as you go along, but it might not be as in depth as you may like, but... Knowing about your gear, how to all works together, what the different manufactures recommend for user maintenance, and how to inspect it are all things you SHOULD be taught if your instructor is doing his/her job you are paying them to do. You can also get this information for free from jumpers that have been around the sport a while and like to share their knowledge. To many new jumpers don't know enough about the gear that is the only thing between life and death, literally. Go get your answers, heck you may want to look into a future as a rigger too!

    Pilot Chute question

    Search function, upper right hand corner, this has been discussed a lot http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?post=54889;search_string=pilotchute%20material;#54889

    Converting metal reserve ripcord to soft?

    It needs to be done at the time of the repack. If it is done later, the same rigger that repacked it needs to do the switch since he packed it last. Good on you, the more you know about your gear, the better. Your life depends on it.

    Mirage RTS riser covers issue

    Seems pretty common on older RTS rigs. Small tuck tabs that can get worn out easily.
