Napoleon Skydiving Center: Level 5 - Turns to Redock II

This level is like the last but the turns are 360 degrees and the amount of forward motion is greater. You should be assisting with the spot in the aircraft and with packing on the ground. Under canopy practice a "collision avoidance" maneuver by turning using a front or rear riser prior to releasing
your toggles.


  • 360 degree turns (one before each redock).

  • Forward movement and docking without assistance.

  • Control of all 3 axes (Pitch, Yaw, and Roll).

  • Wave off, then pull at or above 3000 feet.
