    When should you try rear riser landings??

    Had my first mal on a toggle knotted around my riser... would have been really helpful to have had the training to land my canopy on rear risers... since I’d never never landed on rears, I took a reserve ride. When your canopy isnt steerable because you can’t use your toggles... cut away, just because you could theoretically do something doesn’t mean you should attempt it for the first time under duress or at all for that matter. There’s probably a reason they don’t teach landing on rear risers in the CPC for a reason... Fly it like you stole it

    oh just go do what we always did when we wanted to do something that was out of our age range... take the money you have to go skydiving with and buy or make a fake ID seriously whats the rush... graduate high school first then worry about skydiving. Fly it like you stole it

    Horizontal on opening?

    i used to spin when i went to pull, then one of my instructors gave me a really good tip... look at your altimeter when you go to pull, altitude awareness and stability! just be conscious of your legs with a little bit of pressure on em... like justin said... well put by the way!

    I made my first jump at SD duren, looking back at it now, its one of the best DZ's ive ever been to, they really take the time to instruct you in a logical fashion, English speaking too! so there was little language barrier, would recommend to anyone!!!

    now aside from when you have to pay a packer for time constraints what do you do? but i was just curious... around what jump number you started packing (and jumping) your own rig, if at all. Fly it like you stole it

    2008 Black & Gold Meet

    well... they are coach jumps... wahts it say? whats that mean? if you are AFF: 10-13 or SL/IAD: 16-17 (categories F-H) then you can be supervised by a coach or higher rating would that satisfy the above requirement? sounds like it to me Fly it like you stole it

    Hypothetical.... Your under canopy....

    How can your canopy be controllable if you cant turn right... I'm not gonna what if you to death... but seriously... obstacle/parachutist avoidance? am i right? i think the correct term would be square stable and steerable... good for you for chopping it... your still here arent you?
