By adminon - Read 1393 times

TURNS


JUMP SEQUENCE:



  1. When jumpmaster says "GET INTO POSITION", take your position in the door

  2. When you are ready to exit, turn to your right and shout "CHECK IN!" to your main side JM.

  3. The JM will respond "OK!"

  4. Do the exit count - "Ready! Set! Arch!"

  5. On "Arch!" step to the left, out of the plane.

  6. Count to four, maintaining a hard arch.

  7. Do one practice ripcord touch - "Arch! Reach! Feel! Back to arch!"

  8. Check your altitude.

  9. Look at your main side jump master and shout your altitude at him - "Ten thousand feet!"

  10. Your main-side jumpmaster will give you the left turn signal. When he does, look left, then turn left and face the reserve side jumpmaster.

  11. Check your altimeter.

  12. Your reserve side jumpmaster will give you a turn signal, either left or right. Look in the direction you want to turn , pick a landmark, and then turn 90 degrees towards it.

  13. Check your altimeter again. If below 6000 feet, shake your head - no more manuevers!

  14. At 5000 feet, wave off once, then arch-reach-feel-pull. Hang on to the ripcord after the pull!

  15. Count to five then check your canopy.


PERFORMANCE STANDARDS:



  • Do slow, controlled turns in each direction. Make sure you stop where you want to stop.

  • Maintain good stability throughout the dive.

  • Maintain altitude awareness by looking at your altimeter after every manuever.

  • Respond correctly to all signals.

  • Solo stable ripcord pull at the right altitude.

  • Fly your canopy back to the LZ and land with minimal radio assistance.


LEVEL THREE HINTS:



  • To fix stability problems - ARCH!

  • Remember - your body follows your eyes. Look, then turn.

  • Keep your legs out and steady! Unwanted leg movement can keep you from turning.


REMEMBER THE MOST IMPORTANT PARTS OF ANY SKYDIVE:


PULL!

PULL AT THE RIGHT ALTITUDE!

PULL STABLE!

LAND SAFELY UNDER AN OPEN CANOPY!
