Napoleon Skydiving Center: Level 2 - Body Awareness

Now that you have your feet wet, we will start working on trim maneuvers. There are a lot of things to accomplish on this level, so don't waste time geeking the camera. Once you are under canopy, try a few spiral turns (above 1500' please).


  • Maximum free arm time.
  • 3 PRCTs.
  • Heading awareness during freefall.
  • Trim control or body awareness exercises.
  • Relaxed, arched body position through entire freefall.
  • Pull by 3500 feet, look over right shoulder to observe pilot chute launch.
