Did you already fixed the dates for SIV/ACRO courses? I would love to participate in justACRO D-bag course but I do not have any experience with stall maneuvers and did never participate on siv course jet. But if I am right than if I participate in one of yours SIV/ACRO courses than I can have the D-bag course in the same time if stall maneuvers would not causeing me any problems. I read this here: http://www.justacro.com/news/090210/3rd-justacro-course-oludeniz

Hope to see you soon:)!
