Now, show up at the dz early, make friends with the "old" jumpers, and listen to their stories, debriefs, and jump planning.
By getting there early, you will be around when people are invited on jumps. You won't get on all the jumps, but you will get on some of them.
Know you limitations and when the orgainzer asks, tell him where you feel most comfortable. If you don't understand something, don't say "yes" when asked if you understand what you are supposed to do.
Watch how they organize and why they do certain things.
After a few more jumps you will be tempted to pass your new knowledge on to a newer (than you) jumper and will be planning jumps. If you are 100% sure of your statement (or answer to a question), there is nothing wrong with telling the other jumper.
Don't ever be afraid to ask for help. Most old jumpers like to help new jumpers, because they want them to get better so the old guys will have more people to jump with.
When you screw up, listen to what the other jumpers say and ask them how you can fix the problem. Don't argue or offer excuses! Listen, listen and listen.
If you observe a safety violation ask someone about it. There may be an aspect of the incident that you are unaware of and did not see or consider. Let the S&TA take the actions necessary to solve the problem, but let him know of your concern.
Take a canopy control class as soon as possible.
Practice your EPs religiously and insist on a pin check.
Verify you are in the correct spot in the exit order...know what the group in front of you and behind you is doing.
Listen, be aware, be safe, be friendly and be considerate of your other jumpers. Help the newer jumpers be better skydivers, by being a better skydiver yourself.
