    Skydiving Question

    Dammit, Butters. Shut up. You asked the question, and other people will reply and state their thoughts. You don't have to argue with each one, just sit back and let the discussion develop. You have a good question. But here's the deal. Guy's PC is out in the plane, he's going to be killed in moments. Pushing him out is the only possible chance he has. If everyone lives, you're a hero. If it doesn't work out, he was toast anyway. That's the rationale for the action. It's very simple and should be presented in first jump courses that way.

  2. I'm guessing it will never happen. There's just way less chance of any of the competitors in Flag Dancing dying in a violent, mangling accident. I think the Olympics must be sensitive to that sort of thing. I think it's hard for jumpers to truly understand how whuffos perceive skydiving. But, hey, everyone has an opinion.

    Mistakes that you survive are called "Experience". Congratulations !! You're on your way to becoming experienced. Kevin K. ====================== Seasons don't fear the Reaper, nor do the Wind, the Sun, or the Rain...

    Opinions from experienced jumpers

    Considered by who ??? That's a pretty broad statement. Can you cite the source of this "well-known" fact ? Kevin ====================== Seasons don't fear the Reaper, nor do the Wind, the Sun, or the Rain...
  7. Go with people who know what they're doing. And stay with them. Have good plans for landing out and look out for each other. If there's any CRWDogs around, ask them. Kevin ====================== Seasons don't fear the Reaper, nor do the Wind, the Sun, or the Rain...
  8. At a popular DZ where I jumped a long time ago, it was somewhat common for the entire load to get on the jump plane and just pile their rigs at the back. It was a long ride to altitude and it was a big airplane with a nice sound system, so everyone sort of milled around and socialized till about 10k, then started putting on their stuff. It was all pretty laid back. However, we all had rigs on when we left the airplane. Kevin ====================== Seasons don't fear the Reaper, nor do the Wind, the Sun, or the Rain...

    First Cutaway - Help understanding please!

    Sounds like good analysis of the lines and you made a decision plenty high. Good Job. If you could have found the right line and cut it, that probably would work. But I'd consider that a pretty advanced move to try at your experience level. It would take you longer than you expect to get the right line and also have a high probability of cutting the wrong one. JC Colclasure could probably do it, but you shouldn't try. You took the right route buy resolving the problem with your cutaway handle.

    Wet Reserves

    So far, you are the only one to bring up those three letters. I don't see any reason why this can not be looked at within the jumper / gear industry community, and some answers be found. If it turns out that current practices are shown to be unsafe, then changes will be made, as they have in the past. There should be no need for regulatory intervention over an issue like this.

    opinions on doing a mr bill stunt

    That's obviously going to be different for everyone. Certainly, it's not even perfectly right for me to say that 40 jumps is too little. Maybe with the "perfect natural skydiver", who exhibits the skill of hundreds of jumps after only 25 - that person may be OK. But that's not the norn. Who's to say what's enough. Not me. I'm just saying that at 40 jumps, the average jumper does not have the airmanship skills, in my opinion, to do this sort of thing safely.
