  1. Skydive Hawaii is strictly a tandem factory unless your relative works for the DZ.. There is a huge Hatfields and McCoys thing going on there between the two DZs so everyone has to follow all requirements (i.e.: AAD, USPA card, cloud clearances, etc.). They literally video the other DZ other watching for things to report to the FAA. Be sure you know everything you need to jump there or you may be disappointed. The place is great to jump (one of the best views you will ever get skydiving), however the winds shut down everything by noon or 1pm so you have to get there at the open if you want to get in a few jumps. Bring hiking and snorkel gear - if the weather is bad for jumping at least you can do something else in the morning that is unusual..be sure to read/research if the trails are closed or you may get arrested.

    Were you in a Fraternity or Sorority?

    As others have said - good and bad...I joined to get a (clean & cheap) room close to campus without living in the dorm. The good is there is always something going on... The bad is there is always something going on...and you may be required to attend. Can be distracting if you can't budget your time well. Not all the functions revolved around drinking; some sports, community, political and even social learning experiences with other groups made for interesting times. No hazing...at all. You have to take it for what it is: I paid my dues and was welcome - when I stopped paying my dues, I was unwelcome...best friends money can buy.

    Chris Ware's ash dive

    We are both planning to be there... We both went on our first wingsuit jumps with Chris and any others when he was jumping...miss him often even before he passed.

    What is a wingsuit?

    Based on this definition, the rigid wingtip grippers on some models might be used as a basis for exclusion as a WS. While I agree strapping a fiberglass wing on your back should not be considered a wingsuit, maybe we need to have a defined, allowable limit for rigid components of the WS held by hand to properly tension the wing…?

    Mountain Hardwear, Patagonia, Arcteryx...

    Another one to check out is EMS (the link it to their Outlet Department). I've got some really good deals on closeouts. Z-Flock 8 Discotec Rodriguez Too bad weapons grade stupidity doesn't lead to sterility.

    Might check St Petersburg too (sometimes Sarasota/SRQ has deals, but not too frequent) for some of the airlines. Z-Flock 8 Discotec Rodriguez Too bad weapons grade stupidity doesn't lead to sterility.
