GREAT episode guys!!!

Bryan Burke gave a ton of info (as you guys always supply) on his segment.  I was wondering what the other SDR listeners thought of his "solution" on pattern safety and canopy flight.  Personally I think it is a great idea and more DZs should adopt that mentality.

I really enjoyed listening to Bryan Burke's piece on canopy collisions and found it particularly interesting that he laid the blame at the door of out-dated instructional techniques. I am talking about things like teaching s-turns in the pattern and always landing into the wind.

It seems to me that his ideas could form the basis of a canopy control instruction course for AFFIs. I know when I passed my AFF course I felt totally unprepared for unassisted canopy flight. How many sports or activities focus on the fun aspect over and above survival skills? That's what I am seeing in the AFF course.Does it really matter if someone can do a barrel roll in freefall if they can't land on the dropzone?

Parachute technology and canopy traffic has changed in the past decade or so and it's time we make adjustments to how we teach canopy control.

Like Bryan Burke said, "head-on-a-swivel" is not working any more.

Great show as always, guys!
