Re: [AndyMan] recurrency jump wind restrictions?

Quote:
Recurrency jumps are student jumps. Student wind BSR's apply.

There is nothing that states that licensed skydivers can not still jump in whatever winds that they want even if they are doing a recurrency jump. Actually there is nothing that says a licensed skydiver MUST do a recurrency jump. The wording in the SIMS just states SHOULD do a recurrency jump. I should eat more healty and I should check my gear before each jump. The SIMS states a lot of shoulds but ultimately the USPA says jumpers are adults and can make adult decesions. Like was stated earlier, DZs can set their own rules and guidelines but it is not a BSR and it is not required by USPA.

EDIT TO ADD: I think having a DZ policy that does require uncurrent skydivers to follow student wind guidelines is a good idea.
