Paperwork for travelling jumpers worldwide - please contribute
Hi Guys & Gals
Sorry for posting in english but my french is way to bad for asking complex questions - if somebody could translate it would be great
I know that this has been asked already over time, but after visiting a DZ outside of Austria last weekend, we came to realise, that the rules had changed over the winter and we spent quite some time arguing over rules before being able to jump So to spare travelling European/International jumpers unnecessary hassles - not having the right papers with you wont get you in the plane in some places. I am asking you to help me put together this comprehensive list for jumpers worldwide. Thanks for your input and effort!
If I forgot something feel free to add necessary points
1) Third party insurance (what kind of insurance papers do you have to have): 2) Licence (Valid through/expiry date? Indefintly valid?): 3) Ownership (do you have to carry some kind of “statement of ownership”? If yes: please explain) 4) Reserve (Described on packing card or extra paper? Serial or no serial? Lead-Seal required etc): 4 a) Repack cycles in your country? Do you accept other countries rules?: 5) AAD (Described on packing card? Serial or no serial needed? Maintainance cycle on packing card or extra paper?: 6) Main (Described on packing card? Serial or no serial needed?): 7) Gear/Container (Described on packing card? Serial or no serial needed?: 8) Who states the airworthiness? (Where? Packing card?): 9) Who is responsible for the airworthiness? (Rigger/Owner, etc?):

AAD: No extra papers (maintenance cycle according to owners manual, there has to be no extra records for maintainance!) 7.

Bien que le message ne soit pas en français, je pense que l'on peut le laisser en "bloquant" le thread ....
Comme les canadiens anglophone ont déjà amplement répondu aux questions ... et que je l'ai fait pour la Suisse, il ne reste plus qu'à un français anglophone de répondre sur le lien et le sujet sera clôt !
