Re: [feuergnom] Paperwork for travelling jumpers worldwide - please contribute
Aw hell; I'll give it a go. Other Dutch jumpers, feel free to correct me.
Translated from the Royal Dutch Aeronautical Association (RDAA) regulations:
1) Yes. BUt the regulations are not very clear on what document is considered appropriate.
2) a valid skydiving licence, recognised by the (foreign equivalent of) the RDAA. Students are a special case; I wouldn't know the official policy. Dutch students get an oefenvergunning" ("permit to practice") after completing their FJC, which in this context also counts as a 'licence'.
3) [I don't understand]
4) Reserves must be repacked by a Dutch senior or Master rigger or foreign equivalent, as per the manufacturers guidelines. A 'rigger seal' is mandatory, except if if the reserve is packed by a rigger from a country were sealing is not permitted. A packing card including serial#must be shown.
4a) Repacks are 6 months. I don't know about longer nor shorter cycles in other counries.
5) AAD+serial+maintainance is described on a logcard.
6) Main: serial is described on a logcard, but no inspection cycles are recorded.
7+8) H/C are decribed on a logcard. Serial needed. Gear used by foreign jumpers is evaluated for airworthiness (sp?) by an instructor/rigger. Note: this includes whether or not the I/R thinks the jumper should actually be jumping that canopy.
9) Responsible for airworthiness: ultimately, the owner.
Other papers: - a logbook - a membership certificate of the Royal Dutch Aeronautical association (or a foreign equivalent).
