  1. Honestly, all I ever see is Robert trying to promote his other websites and businesses.... I'm pretty sure that is against the forum rules....
  2. Seriously people. Get over yourselves. This thread can be extremely interesting and many people enjoy following it. We don't enjoy endless pages of bickering.
  3. You people need to find a new hobby....
  4. The search function in the forums? Is this feature still available?
  5. We've been doing it in Australia for a while now.... There's some evidence..... Have you seen my pants? it"s a rough life, Livin' the dream >:)
  6. I got rid of my skysnatch after having a few missed pulls, I just do not like the handle. I much prefer hackey with a tuck tab. Have you seen my pants? it"s a rough life, Livin' the dream >:)
  7. What's typical when people push the limits and ignore the advice of the experienced,? I'm sure you've been around long enough now Iain to understand why I started this thread. I'm sure you've had mates die or been permanently disabled because they thought they were better than everyone else and didn't need to be told what they can or can't do. Yes, you have survived and fucking excelled at what your doing. Consultations mate!!!!! Seriously, your doing some amazing stuff! But not everyone does. Most actually don't. That's why I started this thread in the first place. You were pushing hard. Hard as fuck since your first jump. You know that. You bounced around from country to country, DZ to DZ doing whatever you wanted to, looking for the answeres your wanted to hear. Looking for the gear your wanted to jump, even when others said No. I'll say it again, you've done well my friend. But can you, honestly, as a USPA instructor recommended the same progression for your students? Have you seen my pants? it"s a rough life, Livin' the dream >:)
  8. Who cares, can't buy advertising like that! Millions of people are thinking about the topic of skydiving just because of this Muppet Have you seen my pants? it"s a rough life, Livin' the dream >:)
  9. Full reports can take up to a year to be completed. Often by the time they are released that incident is long forgotten so the information is not always shared here. The Australian parachute federation is probably one of the best for completing reports and releasing information, we get emails of the preliminary reports and final reports.

  10. ATC issues. Have you seen my pants? it"s a rough life, Livin' the dream >:)
  11. Australia just changed to a 12 month cycle. The main reasoning was that more damage occurred during repack. To be signed off for 12 months the entire rug needs to be inspected. Have you seen my pants? it"s a rough life, Livin' the dream >:)
  12. When quatering the slider don't pull the slider down in front of the noise tuck it behind it. Have you seen my pants? it"s a rough life, Livin' the dream >:)
  13. Jurien bay is a good choice, but as I said it depends on what time of year you plan on doing the course. Im sure they will let you know about this. They are very good at catering to international students. Enjoy! Have you seen my pants? it"s a rough life, Livin' the dream >:)
  14. Jurien Bay or York are pretty much your only real options if your looking to do your course quickly. You should be able to complete your AFF in one week at either dropzone if the weather is favourable. Both have facilities where you can stay on the dropzone while you complete your training. Both dropzones run cessna caravans. Jurien bay operates 7 days a week, is a beautiful coastal location and is located right in town so getting to the shops etc is easy. They will stop doing AFF training in Oct or Nov as the summer winds are often too high for student training. York operates 5 days a week, closed tues and wed. Has some of the best facilities in Australia, is located about 7km from the nearest town so its a good idea to have a car available. Either dropzone is a great option for completing your AFF. Completing your A certificate in 2 weeks is possible but I would depend on a combination of your progression, weather conditions and how busy the DZ happens to be while you are there.

  15. Haha nice dude. Did ya make it back across the river? Have you seen my pants? it"s a rough life, Livin' the dream >:)
