Rabbitt Staib – Skydive Spaceland pilot with 14,000 hours’ flying for skydivers – talks about how to handle aircraft emergencies as passengers If you’ve been paying attention at all lately to what’s happening around the world in skydiving, you’d know that the last few years have seen a handful (or two) of aircraft emergency landings. From California to Australia,  and places in between, skydiving aircraft have gone down in sometimes fatal, sometimes miraculously not, crash landings.  While there may be speculation over why this is happening with specific aircraft, one thing that’s ..read more

What a week! Jumping objects for five days straight with no injuries and no mishaps! Organizer Mason Corby describes the wonderful madness of the Object Boogie… Mason Corby builds an entire event dedicated to jumping with objects Photo by Cam Puttee It’s insane to think we made so many object jumps without incident at an event that was purely experimental. The goal of the Object Boogie was to get everyone current with some ideas and jumps we’ve done before — being skyballs and keg jumps — then to move onto some more experimental jumps.  Funny Farm has a long history of jumping objects a ..read more

Should angle jumpers or belly flyers exit first? Image by Augusto Bartelle For most experienced angle coaches, a discussion about whether to send the belly groups out first or the angle groups out first is something that’s a common occurrence at the boarding area. It used to be that belly groups were always out first. Then it became fairly common to send out the tracking groups as a rule of thumb. But as we’ve learned more about drift and forward throw, we’ve also learned that not all situations are safe with tracking groups out first.

I will start working soon at Windoor again as an instructor, but will continue organising tunnel camps around the world. How many jumps do you have, over how long? Any idea how many tunnel hours, over how many years? I have around 500 jumps over a 6 year period, most of them I did in the last 3 years. I’ve been focusing and investing my time in tunnel flying, not sure how many hours I have, I would say personal training well over 1,000 hours, tunnel coaching and working even more. Le ..read more
