Welcome to skydiving and all of the great people and great things that are involved!

As far as tips for your A-lic, recognize that it is a license to learn. It requires taking constructive criticism as a learning process. Be a sponge.

And contrary to popular belief, marginal weather days are great times to go out to the DZ and log some hangar time.

Some of my favorite jumps so far have been on marginal weather days! Including a couple of 20 knot wind-speed landings and my first really stable exit, after flying around for 15 minutes trying to find holes in rain clouds!

definitely be open to information you can gain from any GOOD source...there are a lot of people who want to give advice that might not be particularly suited to you, apply to the situation or might just be down right wrong. always pass questions or info by your instructors. good luck its just begun and youll have a blast! oh and practice packing as soon as possible!

Congratulations. Cool

Remember to review and practice your emergency procedures, even if just in your mind. Make them part of your soul. Smile

I do it weekly-even when i'm not jumping that week. If im jumping...its on like donkey kong! But thanks for the tips, seems like some people forget that over time...(that was NOT meant to offend, just an observation-for the record)
