NEED Cessna 182 Jump Operations Guide ?
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 email@example.com Justin
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?

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:
