    T-10 Cargo Parachutes

    Our rigging facility is using the old T-10 as cargos now for bundles under 300 lbs. Yes Ebay is definitely the place to get them. Thanks, JD

    Cheapest DZ in the dallas area

    A License in a week. Ben Nelson. Mentor Program Spaceland has an incredible format that builds and grows jumpers and a community. They are competitively priced with everyone else out there and have several other programs and intangibles that other dropzones just can't compete with. The sport costs a lot of money. If you can't accept that its not for you.

    Freefly suits for short and stocky guys

    I'm 5'10" 195 and I have a 619 and a Firefly with a double layer of 2 ply taslan. For the sky I greatly prefer the 619 because it has a good amount of drag and I can fly it with precision. In the tunnel I prefer the Firefly because helps me get lift and the precision of the 619 is harder to control. If you're just starting out the 619 might be too powerful in the legs when learning to keep your feet below you in a sit. A one-piece uniform drag suit is probably the right answer. I asked firefly to make mine with an extra 1/4 inch to every measurement and its enough extra material to create a good amount of drag. Kind of like a medium fit in vertical suits. I have roughly 4 hours of tunnel on my firefly and its holding up like a champ. I don't think you really need tunnel options on a loose fitting suit. Also, I would just get over the notion that you are going to buy 1 suit and never buy a suit again.

    Skydive Utah

    The fun jumpers at Skydive Utah are very inclusive. The DZO jumped with my group. All in all, the DZ was welcoming and the aircraft gets to altitude really fast. If there is a downside, it is that they don't have running water so bring whatever you need to get through a day of jumping. Overall, this dropzone is really good. I didn't mind using port-a-potties or stocking up on bottled water because they make you feel at home, its easy to get on loads, and the atmosphere is very relaxed. I'm glad I came out here for a great day of jumping.

    First Annual Dropzone.com Gathering

    The Mamba is pretty good. I like the fact that its quiet enough to hear my audible. I've had problems with my Protec and Nvertigo. If you want a quiet ride this is a good helmet. It goes on super quick in the aircraft so I don't have to worry about getting it on until the plane levels out. It only takes a couple seconds. What I don't like about it. It doesn't fit very well. Sometimes it seems tight, sometimes it feels good, last time air was rushing in on the left side of my jaw. The visor doesn't quite marry up with the unit all that well. It makes me think the pin and hole retaining system will fail someday as 3/4's of the pin doesn't get into the hole. There should be some type of tightening system that runs through the back of the helmet. All that retains the helmet on your head is ergonomics and a chin strap. I particularly dislike the internal audible pockets. I don't understand why the designer thought putting an expensive audible right next to the only nuts and bolts on the helmet is beyond me. I solved the problem by building a little pad of electric tape and cardboard against the nut but it almost makes the audible not fit. The only other thing I don't like about this helmet is that you cant talk to anyone else once you've put it on regardless of having the visor up. Its annoying when someone says something at the last minute or you can't alert someone on the dropzone that you're coming in on final near them. The helmet is very secure. I've made about 15 sitfly skydives in the helmet without issue.
