    tandem instructor course

    My personal opinion is that 500 jumps is not enough for gaining a tandem rating. I'm not sure what the rules are where you but I would suggest that you look at outside camera as a way of building jumps and observing the sort of shit the TIs sometimes have to deal with. I got my rating around 1400 jumps and have 6000 plus tandems currently. Cheers.

    Stuffing into centre cells... wtf?

    If you listen the packer states quite clearly 7 sec into the video that the canopy is a Safire
  3. And why would you disconnect the RSL? Goes against any training I've ever had. If you are a TI I suggest you review your EPs.

  5. That TI should not be doing tandems for a very long time - preferably never.

    Helmets on students - good or bad?

    I think that students should wear soft helmets at all times and that all TIs should wear helmets as well. I'm sure there must be photos now of head injuries to TIs out there. Anyone got any to post?

    Night Tandems

    Not sure what the rules are in the US but in NZ it becomes 'night' 30 mins after sunset. Looked fine to me.

    Sony Vegas/Tandem Vids help

    I'm a computer 'idiot' but I managed to set it up following the tutorials, but it wasn't the easiest process. Drop Mick (the guy who developed the software) a line - he is a great resource and will get back to you as soon as he can. If you want a copy of my template for a reference point I can get it to you through dropbox. Good luck, once you have got it sorted you will love it.
