    Hi, I just got a 27" RPC, 1972 in great shape. It has a sleeve, I am looking for a bag or POD for it. Any ideas? I used to jump one with a POD 1973-5, no problems. Also any ideas where I can get pack opening bands for the Pioneer 3 pin it came with? Thanks, Van

    Descending in a 182

    I used to tight spiral all the way down with full opposite rudder to create the most form/parasitic drag possible. Would drop like a rock while keeping the airspeed low.

    Years ago, early 70s, Sha-Wan-Ga NY DZ, Hudson Valley Skydivers C-182 had a Kicker Plate instead of a handle on the inside, worked great. Convex side facing interior.
