Deeply Disappointed! Review by Walt

I'm quite certain Chris Gay is an outstanding canopy pilot, and on his worst day, he will always be a much better skydiver/canopy pilot than I can ever hope to become...but this DVD was a huge disappointment. I am a low-jump-number, low skill jumper with almost no talent, and I already knew everything in this DVD. This is best suited for a First Jump Course, or a beginning AFF student. All of the material is accurate and well-presented, but so basic as to be worthless to anyone who has actually finished AFF - and it is in NO WAY worth 80 bucks! At most, this should cost $19.95, and should be part of a beginning student's introductory lecture, nothing more. I am going to donate this to my DZ as an instructional aid - maybe some complete n00b will learn something, cuz I sure didn't. (Posted on 1/22/2014)
