     FAA Releases Skydiving Advisory Circular  

The Federal Aviation Administration finally published Advisory Circular (AC) 105-2E, Sport Parachuting, on December 4. USPA chaired the working group that collaborated with the Parachute Industry Association and the FAA to produce the comprehensive advisory circular guidance. The AC serves as a reference and resource companion to the regulations found in Federal Aviation Regulations Part 105, Parachute Operations. Skydivers can find topics that address the use of automatic activation devices, as well as best-practice guidance for the use of seats and restraints. The AC reviews jump aircraft maintenance, jump pilot training and jump pilot operational responsibilities. And much of the AC is dedicated to parachute equipment, repairs and rigging. The AC is available online:
