Quote You show me where in the UPT manual that it says no hook turns allowed, and we'll follow that rule.
How else do you hook a Icarus 330? Besides low-ish. To your eye it was low, but to my eye he actually came out way too high. You are probably the guy that sits down all the time. While I keep my pants clean for weeks. Take some pride in your landing skills man. Hook turn isn't even mentioned in the manual. RTFM?
*** I don't need UPT or anyone else to tell me not to do stupid shit. I quit doing tandems years ago, but when I did them, I never had to hook to do stand up landings. You can try and justify this TI's actions all you want, but the fact remains that he is just plain lucky that three people aren't dead. John Wright
