  1. Yeah, but that's +25 F. It's all been said before, no sense repeating it here.
  2. That's what the "rental fee" should be for. By my calculations, I've spent $1125 in rental fees since I started skydiving in July. I haven't had to cut away so far, and I hope to make many more jumps before I do. Now you watch, on my next jump my canopy will explode or something and I'll need one... Most of the time when they do have cutaways they recover the canopy. But you know, sometimes shit happens and they cant find it. If they're getting bent out of shape due to a lost canopy, they're probably not charging enough in rental fees. They're running a business, they should be charging enough to cover expenses and grow their business. Having people get injured or killed because they were afraid to chop when they should have is not good for business. Exactly. The DZO is responsible for normal, anticipated use of the rig; it's legally considered the "cost of doing business" even if it's in the waiver that the renter is responsible for loss or damage. The DZO would lose the case in small claims court, so make him go through the trouble of suing if he's being that big of a knob about it. On the other hand, when a jumper who just cutaway lands and starts looking for high-fives while he's jumping up and down with glee because he just had a cutaway then he isn't going to get a lot of sympathy from the DZO while the canopy flies away. It's probably a good idea to show some immediate concern for recovering the canopy and minimizing the DZO's liability. It's all been said before, no sense repeating it here.
  3. Skydiving is not a crime... It is making love with the Gods. Now if you are a skydiver, a surfer AND a former President of the USA Don't you mean Ex-President? It's all been said before, no sense repeating it here.
  4. Good grief. I'm not arguing about anything. I was simply trying to point out that it's only "not necessary" because in most (all?) cases, it's not possible to fly a load of jumpers and remain within Class G (uncontrolled) airspace the entire time. Static line 'em!!!! It's all been said before, no sense repeating it here.
  5. My post was about uncontrolled airspace, what part of what I said did you not understand? Akers said notification was necessary in uncontrolled airspace, I said it wasn't. Why are you arguing about controlled airspace? It's all been said before, no sense repeating it here.
  6. Akers specifically referred to uncontrolled airspace in his post. Actually, there are large areas of Class G airspace that go all the way to 14,500 ft. and can easily be seen on sectional charts. It's all been said before, no sense repeating it here.
  7. You missed the part in Part 105 that says notification only needs to be made if jumping in or into controlled airspace. Jumps made in Class G (uncontrolled) airspace don't require ATC notification. It's all been said before, no sense repeating it here.
  8. Does the dealer actually get to see all the cards? Interesting side note here: when did the mafia start settling scores by suing people who rip them off? It's all been said before, no sense repeating it here.
  9. Having to bail out of said airplane but logjammed in the door because some guy ten spots back won't stop trying to shove his way through while yelling GTFO OF MY WAY, YOU MAGGOTS! It's all been said before, no sense repeating it here.

  11. Why are you listening to someone who's claiming that he's rounding up lawyers from all over the country? It's all been said before, no sense repeating it here.
