well its 25 jumps for the A-license for me, im not sure if it changes place to place but i had 18 jumps from AFF plus 2 tandems..ill be 21 soon so i think i got into the sport at a somewhat early age

Do tandems count in the 25? I am starting AFF next weekend and I already have two tandems. That would mean at the end of AFF I would have (7+2) 9 jumps? I didn't think tandems counted???

We have your skyvan out here in new england. I think our otter is getting new engines and we rented it. SOOO much fun to jump out of, the last jump I was flipping on exit and saw the Skydive Chicago words printed on the bottom of the door.

yes they count towards your A-license. i had to do 2 tandems in order to start the AFF program. so ive had 18 solos and 2 tandems
