HE sports Quantum Series 330 parachute

A friend is selling his reserve with a HE harness for a 5’10” 150lb pilot thrown in. You would have to pay for shipping, so you may not want the harness in order to keep costs down. His stuff is always in good condition. The UV coating on the deployment bag is wearing off a bit on one side but other...

Re: PG fatality at Crestline

Here is the accident report that I believe to be well done and helpful.

It is worth reading and hopefully it can help others prevent another tragedy like it. Lua was a fun and free spirit. She leaves behind two kids.

Congratulations Joe! I don’t know anyone that has worked harder to keep our sport alive. Not an easy task in our metropolis!

Very sad news indeed. I will remember Greg for his passion and for patiently introducing tons of people to our sport.
I think the memorial at the beach would be a great idea. Maybe it’s time to do a “Fly Americaâ€Â� again.....

O2 system

Does anyone have an O2 system that they don't need/want anymore that I can buy? Otherwise, perhaps rent?
