SL progression in Sweden Can't Post

Ive been reading alot of postings concerning static line courses and training in the US. Im at jump 12 (18 jumps total) at a DZ in Sweden.

Seems like we do things different here, we dont have any radio communication while under canopy and we pack on our own from the very beginning (with 4 controls during packing though - but not always by riggers). Its cold, we wear gloves and we jump all year round, even students.

SL is almost the only alternative in Sweden, AFF is only offered at a few places.

From Sweden comes Viking skydivers and scubadivers,
its not a walk in the park to get certified here Ill say.

Best Regards,
Carl-Johan
