Hello! I am currently on the 10 second free fall step of my static line course and my instructors and I have noticed something. I tend to de-arch when reaching for my ripcord and forget to reach my other hand forward to maintain symmetry. I'm also having a problem keeping my head up looking at the plane. I have been able to correct most stability issues while in air to an ok level but I think the problem stems from me not being alert in the air. I can do everything timed perfectly on the ground and with good technique, but in the air everything kinda goes out the window. Any tips for staying sharp in the air/not being so scared to be alone in the air? Any advice is much appreciated!
Hello everyone, I had recently made my 200th skydive and I am now allowed to do a wingsuit first flight course by the USPA restrictions. Flying a wingsuit was the reason I started skydiving and I always said my 201th jump is going to be with things but... I recently started to talking with some instructors and wingsuit flyers at my DZ and some of them recommended that I would wait and make more jumps before the FFC. Some of them said that for most skydivers 200 jumps are not enough and you should get more experience. On the other hand I know some skydivers that had began wingsuiting right on the 201th jump and of course they are saying to just buy a suit and start learning. I want to hear some more opinions on this matter. If 200 is really not enough - what do you recommend? I know for most its not a number problem (there are plenty "old" skydivers with at least 1000 jumps who can still be dangerous to others). For me, I have descent skills with tracking and angle flight, I know how to keep on heading and to do a good break off track. I am also pretty descent under my canopy and can return from a longspot if neccessary. What do you think? Wingsuiting is my dream but I also understand (at least I think I am) the dangers of the dicsipline and the dangers of recklessness in this sport.
