  1. From what I gathered from the article, the integration of wind tunnels into USPA was a PIA decision that the USPA voted against but was overruled. As the representative for the USA, the USPA was forced to comply. The question now is what to do/how to comply with the PIA directive. Could someone explain to me what the PIA actually does for me as a USPA licensed skydiver? Organize international competition? Anything else? Is there is a reason to cede authority to the PIA?
  2. Where'd you see that Mark?
  3. I have a Spectre 210 sitting in my closet if you want to buy it.
  4. That's not what you asked. You asked what a Sabre2 is close to.
  5. http://www.giltcity.com/newyork/anthonybourdainnyc?package_id=13202?pkey=fborganic&signup=f&osocid=facebook&plt=wallpost Anyone been to Above the Poconos Skydivers?
  6. Try watching this. It might help. 50 second in or so. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8F5MkP484E&feature=related
  7. SUNY New Paltz - Skydive the Ranch 6.7 miles
  8. WRONG! The title of the video is clearly blaming the Vigil fire for the whole thing. It's passing the buck and B.S. Also, an enemy deserves no mercy. What is the problem Mr. Lawrence?
  9. Good luck. Hope your plane doesn't fall apart or burst into flames!
  10. Or maybe this isn't the sport for you. There has to be a threshold ratio between the number of jumps and the number of broken bones.
  11. For the record, Subarus have boxer engines. It means the pistons are horizontally opposed giving a lower center of gravity than pistons that are diagonally opposed. A Porche Boxster does not have a Subaru boxer engine in it.
  12. RIP man. Did a whole bunch of video for you in the cold cold spring this year at the Ranch. Blue skies.
  13. Most likely not. Although I have to wonder if the reserve handle was dislodged before it was caught on the GoPro. If it was seated properly and there were 3 inches of 3/4 inch velcro holding the thing in place, I'd expect the GoPro to bend a little, or the guy's head to be yanked as the velcro was getting ripped apart. Edit: I guess not. It looks seated, but it's a pretty big handle. I'm going to have to get a GoPro and see if I can get it in my smaller D-ring.
  14. Whatever matches your jumpsuit, duh.
  15. So 254 jumps with 239 posts puts you at about 1.06. You should be careful or you will violate your own rule. I consider the content rather than the source. I personally have posted more than I have jumped, but I have rarely posted to Safety and Training , Incidents, or General Skydiving Discussions because I know I am an noob. I have been involved in many FAR and SIM discussions, because I don't think jump numbers matter in those discussions. I'd do it the other way around, posts divided by jumps, so anyone that has a ratio over 1. Excessive posting always makes me wonder why people are wasting their time on the internet and not jumping. Read more. Post less. Keep your ears open and your mouth shut. Anyhoo, thanks for reminding me to update my jump numbers.
