  1. Great job saving your life! What a mess! As a general comment, I will tell you that you probably did not pull your reserve 1/10th of a second after you cutaway if you beat your skyhook. You pulled them together, or even probably the pin was pulled before you had actually cutaway at the risers. Practice practice practice having a clear 2 action process: Cutaway, then Pull. Not cutawaypull.

    Not active in summer. I think They'll be back in Oct.

    US DZ operating Skyvan or Sherpa

    CASA would be the next closest I could think of. 32 jumpers. Slower on the climb. Tougher to use with lots of small groups since the jumprun tends to be faster and the drop gets strung way out. But you can chunk some wicked formations off that huge ramp. Great for boogies, but you need a hundred fun jumpers to keep one turning so not so great for daily use. Just my opinions. Don't know if it's possible to make new Skyvans, but they did start making otters again due to demand. Casas need 2 pilots. Another strike against them, tho they are f'ing fun planes for sure.

    You're so cute.... I think it's 7 now. (but yeah, mostly used for military, and boogies) I just received notification that I'm talking out of my ass. That's 8 skyvans. Don't they lease a few out to other DZs for boogies? They sometimes lease out both Vans and Otters.

    Tony suit or Bev

    I bought 1 bev suit. Lasted less than 2 season. Went back to Tony, well onto my 3 season with this suit and probably will last a couple more. YMMV.

    Heavy DSLRs on your helmet?

    I guess you know all there is to know about photography then!
  10. I have a similar rule for when there are conflicting landing directions in a landing area: When I see 2 people land in opposite directions, I consider that area closed for me and land out. 2 reasons: - I don't want to be adding to the confusion - I have no clue what other people will do (did they see #1 and #2, or just #2, or just #1...)

    Skysurfing checklist?

    Not bad actually. They go out 1st, and you just need to give them enough seperation.

    "Burner and company" Its not Burner, but there are balloon jumps again. Just wanted to clarify that!

    A license jumping camera....

    Nope, will order a new mount and give it a try. Don't think double-sided tape will be a huge challenge to adrenaline-powered human. I had to replace the mount on my helmet this weekend. It took me about 2-3 minutes with a screwdriver to get the mount adhesive off.

    Is the Stiletto a better Pilot?

    If you listen to the talk John Leblanc gave to the BPA about canopy progression and the two paths, he does imply that the Pilot and Stilettos are very close (he mentions the Pilot in passing, as he mostly focuses on PD's canopy). Don't have the link handy, but I'm sure you know what I mean...
