During your solo jumps, try to work on the skills you'll need for the last 5 AFF jumps (That't what I wish I had done, rather than just doing fun jumps to get up to #20). Probably best to work on stable exits, slowfall/fastfall, front/back flips, barrel rolls, turns, tracking, etc. Also work on flying a predictable final landing pattern and accurate landings (you'll need several landings w/in 10 meters of your target). I needed to improve my diving exits and getting stable quickly. Good luck on finishing (I did in December). Oh yeah, take a packing class too.

How safe are front/back flips and barrel rolls maneuvers on a student rig that's 100% NOT freefly friendly? Isn't there a premature deployment concern?

I had a student rig (rental) while on AFF (the two SOLO jumps) and I was working on backflips, did one and everything was fine did the second and BAM under canopy at 8500 feet...not sure if it was because it wasnt FF Friendly or the BOC/Pilot Chute was out.

You can imagine how long it took me to come back to land flying a 280 Navigator ¬¬
