Questions about ram air emergency parachutes by JS
(Moved from the parachute comfort thread) Uli asked: Not wanting to derail this thread any further (if that is even possible) but realistically, how difficult is it to use a ram-air chute vs. a round canopy? I have only three static line jumps under a military style Pioneer L-10 and the landings...

OLC index in CN? by [email protected]
Is there an option to input OLC glider index in the CN? I found a ~10% difference between what the CN was calculating and what my actual score ended up being on OLC. I scanned the manual and I'm not next to my CN at the moment. Thanks.

Hey Dorothy, we're not in Kansas anymore (SSA Contest TrackingWebsite for Cordele still down?) by Papa3[_2_]
So, I get a nice view of Kansas when I try to follow the Cordele tracking pages. I'm assuming this is the case for everyone else? And yes, I know this is conceptually the same thread as yesterday. Just hard to resist the Kansas motif... P3
