Finally!! My new parachute rig arrived!!
So far I’ve only flown it a handful of times, but nothing compares to having a custom fit rig on your back.
The material is still all very stiff and obviously fresh off the assembly line (which I visited back in February in DeLand, Florida).
I cannot wait to break it in.
Even more, I am glad it arrived in time for my August trip to the Mountain Gravity Boogie in Switzerland!
The air-worthiness inspection is done and the Tokyo Skydiving Club is open again for business. I packed my bags and got everything sorted on Friday night… Only to wake up late on Saturday morning. (more…)
About the time I down-sized my canopy from a 150 to 135, I changed out the connection between my risers and lines from a rapid-link to a soft-link.
After about 2 months of waiting, finally my friend swapped her main canopy for a newer model and I was able to snatch her older one.
