Practice Rip Cord Pulls (3 jumps)
First Free Fall
5 second delay - stable, relaxed.
10 second delays - 4-90° turns (2 jumps)
15 second delays - 2-180° and 2-360° turns, assisted packing (2 jumps)
30 second delays - back-loop, front-loop, barrel roll (2 jumps)
45 second delays - Diving Exits, Tracking (3 jumps)
Step 1 - Tandem Introductory Skydive
Step 2 - Tandem Assisted A/C, freefall and canopy maneuvers.
Step 3 - Tandem Un-assisted A/C, freefall and canopy maneuvers and procedures.
Step 4 - AFF Ground School and
Tandem Confidence Jump
Step 5 - AFF Leg awareness and control modes; heading maintenance; hover control; unassisted solo pull.
Step 6 - AFF 360° turns (one before each dock); forward movement and docking without assistance; control of all three axes (pitch, roll, and yaw); wave off before pull.
Step 7 -AFF Brief pilot with assistance; spotting (direct to pilot); perform a stable, poised exit without assistance; solo, no contact exit; sub-terminal heading control; two back-loops; tracking; wave off before pull; land within 25 meters of center of the landing area; perform correct approach and landing techniques.
Step 8 - AFF Demonstrate ability to inspect, pack, don, and adjust equipment correctly; demonstrate ability to inspect and pack main canopy; explain and demonstrate knowledge or Relative Work (flying relative to another jumper) safety procedures (both in freefall and under canopy), including wave off prior to pull; brief pilot without assistance; spot correctly without assistance; self-check equipment; diving exit with no contact – maintain or recover control; intentional front loop; chain of controlled maneuvers – right turn, left turn, back-loop, barrel roll may also be used; tracking as altitude permits; wave off prior to pull; land within 25 meters of center of the landing area; demonstrate safe canopy control procedures.
Step 9 - Solo jumps from 5,500 and 3,500 feet.
