If you really want to, then like it says in the article, USPA or Skydive UK are both good... if you don't live in the US or UK then I can't help you...

Call me a wuffo then; if the plane is going down, I'll be the first one out the door, but until then, I'm going to give the pilot the chance to set me down more gracefully. smiley - winkeye

I really like this article, especially the clever bits in the static-line jump section. I also don't foresee any difficulties of getting this one Edited in light of the fact that there is an entry on skydiving. For one, this one contains so much information that the other lacks. For another, this article is about a specific area in the subject, whereas the other is qite general. There's no real content overlap, and so this one has its place in the Guide, IMHO.

Ah, you've never seen a hotshot come in at 60 mph and slide to a halt on one foot, then walk away like nothing... now that's graceful. smiley - smiley

And thanks! smiley - winkeye

Alrighty, well, Vanora's addition is posted to the Entry itself... neither of us knows how to make this into a double-researcher project though, so if an Editor could be so kind as to add the AFF section in and put both of our names on the Entry?

That's easy: insert her contribution into the entry (right now /you/ are the only one with writing permission) and insert a remark at the top of the entry, anything along the lines of 'credits go also to vanora (plus http-link)', that's it!

That puts her name under the "Referenced Researchers" though, as opposed to the actual "Researchers"... oh well, whatever...

That's true... but it serves as a hint to the sub-ed to promote these referenced researchers to co-authors. Before sub-editing, nothing changes.

I suppose that's my cue...

Congratulations! This article will now begin the obstacle course through the editing scheme. It will be passed on to a sub, who will perform revisions, and then it will go to the What's Coming Up? page, where researchers (including yourself) can make last-minute suggestions before it passes through final edit and appears on the main page, and the community showers you with accolades for a job well done. smiley - biggrin


Congratulations!

Great entry.

I have only done it once, from 14,000 feet above Camden, near Sydney some years ago, with two kind gentlemen sticking their tongue out to tell me when all was o.k., and shaking me to tell me when I was not "hard-arched". I think I must have been taught properly because not only can I still remember the drill (at the door, check left, check right, out, in, go - hard arch) - another testament to the training is that I "looked, reached, pulled and hard-arched" at the appropriate hight and, after a gentle glide down to the ground, landed without mishap.

What a buzz! Who needs an engine to go 100MPH, when you can just step out of a plane in flight.

I always meant to do it again, but never did - maybe this article will prompt me to give it another go (although I don't think my wife's heart could take it).

smiley - run
