I was listening to an episode of Cloud Base Mayhem and one the people said "you shouldn't be doing cross country if you don't have a current SIV" and it got me thinking. Not as to whether he was correct or not (as a newbie I have no idea) but... As a newbie, when should I be thinking about an SIV? Straight away? After 100 hours? Before I move off an EN-A or low EN-B wing? Before I want to do a comp?
Sometimes I don't know how helpful I should be, taking in account I am new to the sport. Yesterday I was looking some people fly and one guy was struggling with the way he connect the wing to his harness, first I was looking and I did say nothing, but when he prepare to inflate I saw something was not right and I told to him. He checked, disconnect and connected again wrong, after a while I connected his wing to his harness for him and asked him to check everything and don't trust in what I did, he checked and took off. Later I was thinking what happened if I have connected his harness wrong and he get hurt because that, but if I did say nothing and he took off with the harness connected wrong and get hurt ? Is there a line where I should not cross on help others ? Like I should told him it was wrong but not connected for him. Cheers, Hugo Luiz
