NEED Cessna 182 Jump Operations Guide ? Can't Post

I just bought a 182, Its in great shape and Id like to keep it that way. With this in mind I would like to establish GUIDE FOR MY PILOTS So everyone uses the same technique with Climb settings and such
Does anyone have an 182 operations manual they use at their DZ They would share with me?
I have a 1961 C182D with an O470 with cowl flaps, 3 Blade prop, droop tips.
Send it to skyditch1@gmail.com

Invest in an engine analyzer. Ambient conditions vary so widely that a standard procedure doesn't work all the time.

If you're a Group Member dropzone, you can download a decent Ops manual from that area of the USPA website, though I haven't had much luck with downloads from the site lately myself.

Para-Gear used to carry the same manual in printed form, but I don't see it in their inventory anymore.

Correction: I was finally able to get the Group Member "Skydiving Aircraft OPERATIONS MANUAL" downloaded and it wasn't what I was remembering. Just a bunch of very general stuff.

I do have a copy of the old USPA/FAA video on DZ flying that focuses on the 182. It's 630MB, though, so I can't e-mail it. Are there any file-sharing sites left to which I could upload such a large file for free?

Here is an FAA/USPA video, but I don't recall it focusing on the C182. If you have a source to something else, I am interested.

Found the Flight Operations Handbook. It's available at:

Gary,

Thanks for the link. That's the video for pilots flying at airports with skydiving operations, and is a good intro for that audience.

The one I was referring to is "Flying for Skydive Operations", which was also developed by USPA and FAA around the same time. It's intended for new jump pilots, and focuses on C-182 operations, since that's where they mostly start.

USPA used to sell the videos on VHS, but never made the transition to the digital era. I copied the tapes to my PC and sent USPA copies last October. I was kind of hoping that they would make them available as free downloads, but no luck so far. If anyone's interested, FFSO can be downloaded in four parts from:

http://www.mediafire.com/?yvfmnfdmepvo3zu
http://www.mediafire.com/?m9xtic6olnor8oh
http://www.mediafire.com/?iljtq7qbf79s61k

I also have the other video in, well, as high a res as a VHS conversion allows, if you'd like that.

No copyright issues for either video, as long as you don't edit out the FAA info at the beginning of the video.

Here are the links to "Skydiving and Parachute Operations":

Mediafire has a 200 MB limit on file sizes for free access, so I used HJSplit to break them up. You can re-join them using JZip or most other similar archiving programs.
