Classic example of a student trying to control the glider like one would drive a school bus. The control bar does NOT control the glider, but is merely a tool by which you use to distribute the load ...

Depends. How important is it to have insurance? Insurance is like condoms, you don't need it until you need it. USHPA membership is not required or mandated by law to do anything. Many sites aroun ...

I was trying to find the launch on google earth so I could calculate the glide to the bailout & the main LZ, but I was unable to locate it. I have only flown there once, but from what I recall it ...

I did repack it myself this year.
Was the bungie that released still inside the harness?
How are the bungies secured inside the inner grommet?
Did you re-use the bungies, or put new ones in?
Was ...

Thats a possibility, but both loops were through the bottom grommets when I landed, if it were only through one of them then I would have lost one of the loops. On launch when I checked the pins were ...
