    Two dropzones review for AFF

    Hey Yousef, I would do a little research and try and find a DZ that has little influence from the weather. That’s a long way to come and then get rained out. California has very consistent weather in the summer. SkyDance, in Northern California has a pretty respected AFF. I would also try and find a DZ close to a tunnel, several minutes in a tunnel can save several expensive AFF jumps of being frustrated. There is a tunnel close to SkyDance. Cheers

    Downsizing as a student

    Just forget you ever heard about the 45 degree exit rule.

    Downsizing as a student

    10 jumps and you have a “usual” landing pattern? Is that 7 AFF jumps + 3 student jumps? You should be extremely concerned jumping a 200. My understanding was it takes a couple of more jumps than 10 to go to a 200, Germain suggest 100 jumps at your weight to jump a 200.1
  4. At the least he’s a student jumper.
  5. I drive by Lodi frequently and have noticed a shortage of fun jumpers. I was looking at their web page and noticed the price of their tandems and fun jump have increased by 50%, when did this happen?

    First time buying gear

    You’re a little late, but a nice Go Pro.
  7. Stationed at North Island NAS 1982, the base’s civillian jump club offered a FJC for $40. As best as I can recall, they made a deal with Arizona’s National Guard to teach them the FJC in exchange for using their Hueys to jump from. My first civillian jump was from a Huey. I was 19 and it was on my bucket list before their were bucket list.

    Five minutes in the tunnel and you’ll be all set, it worked for me.

    My whole life I wanted to bowl, finally I saved some money and took some lessons, it didn’t go so well and I got the skydiving speech... And here I am.

    Water Dropzone - Looks Safe

    Would you mind elaborating on the one that wasn’t?
  12. After reading your whole story, I can say one thing with certainty... Melatonin is crap.

    Believe it or not, your answer could come from a female.

    Buddy jumps

    So back in 82, after completing my 5 static line jumps, they took me up to 12.5 and I did a “Buddy jump” how I was able to leave linked and stay stable my first time in FF is astounding to me. Were these jumps common?

    AFF Level 1 with one instructor?

    Lodi has always used a single instructor for AFF.
