Tandem instructor

Recommended Posts

If you have 50 or 100 (I forget the exact number) tandem jumps, then you only have to do the ground school and a couple of jumps with a Strong Tandem Examiner.
Make sure you have a fresh Class 3 medical when you report for training, fresh membership card for Brazilian Parachute Federation, etc.
