  1. Just as Peter has explained: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lACUXqfFmV8 and: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vT12xDwXq8E

  3. Not a problem - in slow flight, both engines throttled back, the 45 degree rule "should" apply. As long as your pilot friend can fly straight and level. Maybe the same probability as hitting the tail of a King Air B90, follow similar procedures and cautions. I made a couple of no suiters, just a pair of shorts, from Ed O'Brien's (D1123) 337 N2617F (at Morningstar Beach USVI) back in '83. You may have seen a previous post of mine on the same subject. Have fun, you'll love it.
  4. Does anyone know who this is? An old friend in South Africa is asking, now I'm curious too.
  5. Talk to Martin Coronel over at Fray Bentos, who has been to Lodi a few times.
  6. It ain't Everest, but you won't have to sell your soul: http://aviaclubnepal.com/
  7. Take your own gear. You'll probably enjoy jumping onto a tropical beach from an Mi8 or An-2.
  8. Well, I didn't actually jump with him, but Felix Baumgartner was the pilot of the helicopter used at competition in Germany I entered last summer (Ecureille B3-B OE-XBF).
  9. Jumping in Astana and Almaty if he's in either of those places.
  10. Some years ago I crewed on a Carvair (appropriately registered as C-GAAH). Got to fly it too, but never got to jump it.
  11. Your biggest problem will be getting stuck behind hundreds of old geezers driving slow moving Winnebagos going the same direction you are. That might not be a bad thing - the price of gas is $6.00 a gallon or more, you'll get better mileage at slower speeds. Have a great trip!
  12. Contact Barry Cyr at www.skydivebc.ca Check the calendar for August, it looks like he will be in Carcross 15 to 27 August. It's a fairly laid-back operation centered on fun and comradeship; you'll have fun. Maybe you did your tandems with him on one of his previous trips? Ummm.. where are you in YT??
