    Business Statistics Project Survey

    Thank you I am aware of that, and the professor understands that given the time frame he gave us there will be some discrepancies with normal procedures. He is more worried that we understand the concepts then being completely accurate. Although, we are to explain how we would do things differently given proper time and resources. On a side note I no longer need responses...thank you to those that did. Huh?!? What cloud?!? Oh that!!! That's just Industrial Haze Alex M.

    Business Statistics Project Survey

    I posted this on the Bonfire but I am not getting the response I need. I'm assuming there are many more like me that just normally avoid the Bonfire so I am posting this here as well. It is somewhat skydiving related so Mr/Mrs Mod please let it remain here. I am doing a project for my business statistics class and need a random sample of 40 skydivers (20 male, 20 female) to answer two questions for me. Please send me an email to tmanly@atu.edu, or PM me here or just post a reply answering; 1) What Gender are you? (Male or Female) 2) Have you ever done or seriously considered doing a BASE jump? (Yes or No) I will post when to stop submissions for each gender when I hit 20 results. Thank you for your help. Huh?!? What cloud?!? Oh that!!! That's just Industrial Haze Alex M.

    Our Beloved Marnie Fuller

    My condolences to both Marnie's and Jennifer's families. An unbelievably sad day I am blessed to have known them. My prayers go out to all involved directly and indirectly. Huh?!? What cloud?!? Oh that!!! That's just Industrial Haze Alex M.
  6. I also just reported this guy but was beat to the punch....here is my correspondence with him. __________________________________________________ UNACCEPTABLE!!!!! As stated...I will only accept cashier's check or money order from a magor US bank in the exact amount of purchase or Paypal. I am finding that shipping to the UK with FedEx is about $150. If you wish to use a money order, send me $1050 and once my bank clears it I will ship the canopy. You will have to negotiate payment from your client seperately.

    Video package pricing structure

    I'm curious what kind of pricing structures different dzs have on what their retail price is and how much the videographer, and editor get paid. This is not in addition to still photographry. For instance; Small dz w/ C-182 going to 9500' - Retail is $65. $20 covers the videographers slot, $25 for the videographer which includes the editting/burning, and $20 profit to the DZO. Stills pricing is between the photographer and the tandem student. How does this compare with others? We are also in the process of incorporating inclusive and exclusive hand-cam video. Oh yeah we have to provide our own supplies. Huh?!? What cloud?!? Oh that!!! That's just Industrial Haze Alex M.

  11. Someone asked "What is Industrial Haze?" It is a local dzs only membership discussion forum that Shayna and Rick are members of. Someone asked "How can I help her out?"

    student accident

    Seeing as the canopy opened and flew fine before the brake was accidentally released this would not be the case. This rig was also jumped by Rick just before Shayna's jump on it and it opened and flew fine. Huh?!? What cloud?!? Oh that!!! That's just Industrial Haze Alex M.

    student accident

    Ok first about the main "malfunction". It was a pilot error induced malfunction. I also, wish they would mention that it was a correctable malfunction, but instead she chose to cut it away due to her "freaking out". Yes, it is a direct quote from Rick that Shayna says she "freaked out"....plain and simple. She understands in hind-sight what she should have done and kicks herself for it. As far as it being Rick's lack of instruction, here's a new tidbit of information to derail that gossip. Rick did not teach her the FJC. It was a different instructor that taught her this course at their home dz. She was throughly shown all EPs from a hanging harness by this other instructor (who will remain nameless) that has taught thousands of FJCs. So this is a non-issue. The reserve also malfunctioned and nobody knows, or will know why. The FAA has cleared the rigger (who will also remain nameless) of any negligence, and rightly so. While this is also a non-issue and not the cause of the incident, it is the effect or the reason for the freak accident. Yes a FREAK ACCIDENT!!! That's all. Now about them coming to my home dz (in AR) instead staying at their own (in MO)....I don't know their exact reason other then the gossip I've read here, but I do know it wasn't that they "drove to another DZ, far enough away from our local one so as not to get caught". The dz in Siloam is the next closest dz to theirs and we all visit each others dz several times a year. Yes they may have come because they did want to jump together, but it wasn't a matter of "getting caught". This is also a non-issue. If your looking for someone to blame over all this, Shayna says "blame me". This whole incident boils down to lack of experience, not lack of instruction. In hind sight it's easy for all of us to know what we would have done if it was us, and she now knows what she should do if it happens again. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right? Huh?!? What cloud?!? Oh that!!! That's just Industrial Haze Alex M.

    student accident

    120 + 30 lbs for gear = 150lbs ==> ~.9:1 wingloading. Too high for an AFF student IMO. Things are alreaady going bad when the reserve ripcord is pulled. No need to have a reserve smaller than the main. I was figuring 15-20 lbs for gear as it wasn't a typical student rig. Huh?!? What cloud?!? Oh that!!! That's just Industrial Haze Alex M.

    student accident

    That is too small a reserve for an AFF student of Shayna's size. Tempos are smaller than their advertised size, IIRC. Tempos are smaller than a PD (or other reserve measured with PD's method) of the same advertised size. See riggerrob's post below. It is disheartening to hear of rated instructors with such disregard for student safety. Not argueing your point but only offering a little more info for better clarification. It was also stated to me in the phone conversation that Shayna weighed 120#. Which would put her reserve w/l at .79 - .82. Huh?!? What cloud?!? Oh that!!! That's just Industrial Haze Alex M.
