Skydiving Training Age Survey

Recommended Posts

It might have been (or still be) good to indicate how long ago training happened; when I trained, there were no follow-on programs, and there were no options beyond static line. And repeating 3 or more on a static line progression is very, very, different from repeating a jump on AFF progression.

Wendy totally agree it would be better. 

When I drew up this survey I initially had many more levels in it with many more questions, trouble is it took about ten minutes to answer and I figured it needed to be under two minutes or it is too long.

ike to invite you all to take part in this survey.

The section on which training method do you employ - I answered as an Instructor, not as when I was a student and wondered why it wasn't a "Select all that apply." Then when I finished the survey figured out - you meant as a student. Apologies.

Thank you to all those who have already contributed, there is some intersting data developing and I am looking forward to analysing and publishing the observations.

The survey is still running so still time to add your input if you havent managed to yet

The "number of rejumps" question is not really relevant for SL. You'll get there when you get there (freefall). You might need six jumps, you might need sixty jumps. Either is fine.

Truth, even for AFF.

25 jumps minimum for an A license via AFF. Think I was at 34ish when I got mine. Seems most people repeat at least a few.

 

OP, please post the results on here when available. I didn't want to give an email...

With AFF there's at least "levels" you have to pass. I thought the OP was driving at that with the question.
