as far as how to know when to flare, you have a radio and they tell you when to flare as you are approaching to land.

Not every dz puts radios on their students. Even if they do, radios can fail. Don't count on getting any help with flare timing on any jump.


hmm, wasnt aware of that. if it wasn't for that radio i definitely would have flared too early. the ground seemed much closer than it was once i was at around 25 feet from landing.

No offense to you but this is a good example of why we kind of cringe when students offer advice on the internet. You will hear the saying, "You don't know what you don't know."
