This video ranks in the “don’t try this at home” category, but we
thought it was worth sharing. The video shows a skydiver jumping out of a North American T-6 Texan, the legendary advanced
military trainer, which has become a staple in the warbird scene at airshows around the country.
However, with its glass canopy and large vertical stabilizer, the T-6 is perhaps not the most ideal
platform for a skydiver. The video shows how the skydiver gingerly climbs out of the cockpit. After he gives the thumbs
up, the pilot pitches the airplane up to slow it down prior to the skydiver releasing his grip on the canopy. Several interesting
views are shown of the jump, including one from the vantage of the skydiver as the airplane fades away.
Our long battle for Third Class Medical reform has
finally paid off with a HUGE win.And we couldn't have done it without YOUR help! On July 15th, Third
Class Medical reform was passed by Congress and signed into law.Now, FAA has one year to implement these
reforms and – once they do – most non-commercial pilots who've held a valid medical since July 15, 2006 will never
need to see an AME again.
