  1. Paratec uses the clear Lolon Cable for military rigs. Especially for the Bundeswehr, that asked for a clear cable. So it is safe to use If your parachute fails to open, remember you have the rest of your live to fix it.
  2. The Speed2000 packs similar to a PD Optimum If your parachute fails to open, remember you have the rest of your live to fix it.
  3. The german parachute association made tests with a drogue chute in a wind tunnel some years ago. Drogue bridle lenght: 190", speed 120mph, average pull force: 180 lbs IIRC they used a Vector drogue chute. If your parachute fails to open, remember you have the rest of your live to fix it.
  4. Container is open before he releases his pc... If your parachute fails to open, remember you have the rest of your live to fix it.
  5. There was no "jump counter" until a few years ago. Probably the installed it (it is just a software thing) during the 4-year-check... If your parachute fails to open, remember you have the rest of your live to fix it.
  6. Have a look at this one: http://www.dkexe.de/x-shut/index.php?menuid=21&reporeid=39 Unfortunately the site is mostly in german, but I am sure the owner will provide english information if you contact him. Here is a review by Norman Kent: http://www.dkexe.de/x-shut/index.php?menuid=0&reporeid=41 If your parachute fails to open, remember you have the rest of your live to fix it.
  7. Have a look at this one... http://www.bigairsportz.com/pdf/bas-sizingchart.pdf If your parachute fails to open, remember you have the rest of your live to fix it.
  8. Check this out: http://www.trackingderby.com If your parachute fails to open, remember you have the rest of your live to fix it.
  9. Yes, that's right, I read the bulletin some weeks ago. Please contact Paratec (info@paratec.de). There should be an english version on their website. The bulletin is mandatory, it has to be done when your rigger repacks your reserve. If your parachute fails to open, remember you have the rest of your live to fix it.
  10. Just "another" story ... http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,252405,00.html If your parachute fails to open, remember you have the rest of your live to fix it.
  11. I am going to miss you Eddie! Be careful out there If your parachute fails to open, remember you have the rest of your live to fix it.
  12. OK let's try it this way: if you only want to do head-down or head-up(stand or sit) and no flat positions (belly or back), you should not exit on your belly. A group that changes between vertical and horizontal positions should exit before a group doing just vertikal, of course. If your parachute fails to open, remember you have the rest of your live to fix it.
  13. If you perform a normal head-up or head-down skydive, you should not exit on your belly because of the drift. If there is another freefly group that left before you, you could drift over them. If your parachute fails to open, remember you have the rest of your live to fix it.
  14. And the same link on more time http://www.bigairsportz.com/pdf/bas-sizingchart.pdf If your parachute fails to open, remember you have the rest of your live to fix it.
  15. Being scared is very common, it isn't a "normal" situation when you exit an airplane. And there are at least 1000 good reasons not to jump. And you should not jump if you are not prepared to. Some years ago, I was in a plane and when they opened the door, I was terrified. And I didn't jump. I landed with that plane. After that load a very good friend talked to me. We repacked my main (only to feel good) and went on the next load. When they opened the door, I was terrified again. He nearly had to kick my ass out of the door. We did a nice 2 way, we flew a number of points and everything was perfect. During the next jumps I was a little bit nervous, but not terrified. Oh by the way, that didn't happen when I was a low timer. At this point I already had about 1200 skydives. If your parachute fails to open, remember you have the rest of your live to fix it.
