    Asking about AFF A-licence

    Each country has their own governing body for skydiving so the rules will be different. You can check out the Australian Parachute Federations website to see if they recognize licenses from other countries. From the APF Operational Regulations.. Eligibility for Descents A visitor who holds a valid parachuting licence issued by an FAI member may make descents only after: (a) Taking out short-term membership or full membership of the APF; and (b) A Chief Instructor has assessed the visitor’s experience and competence and has written in the visitor’s log the level of APF privileges that the visitor may exercise

    tunnel in N.Carolina

    You're paying for the size of the tunnel so about the only way you're going to reduce the cost is to go to a smaller tunnel. Orlando, New Hampshire and Denver come to mind.

    Question on ratings

    Here's a link to the section of the IRM... http://www.uspa.org/Portals/0/Downloads/Man_IRMEssentials.pdf Check out page 2 section 1.F for the coach rating. Page 23 in the PDF covers IAD.
  7. Wow, that would be some interesting canopy rides.

    First gear

    Talk to your instructors and local rigger. They will be able to better suggest what is right for you because none of us know you or your abilities, whereas they will. Welcome to the sky.

    Income Tax - training and licensing deductions

    If you received a 1099 for the income you made from being an instructor you can use Schedule C (Profit or Loss From Business) and deduct your training expenses from potential profit. You need to have receipts to prove the expenses. NOTE: I am not a CPA so check with your tax professional.

    Noob question

    Assuming you're in the US... Most drop zones go to an altitude somewhere between 10,500 and 14,500 AGL (above ground level), depending on the elevation of the DZ and the type of aircraft they fly. For skydivers, supplemental oxygen should be used above 15,000 MSL (mean sea level), although it's only a recomendation. Pilots, on the other hand, are required to use supplemental oxygen at a lower altitude and is addressed in FAR 91.211.

    Good Deal?

    That would be a great deal even without them not charging you if you need to repeat the next aff level. $240 for 10 minutes = $24 per minute which is about what a regular jump slot costs. Not to mention you're getting a coach. Do it!

    Working my way through AFF...

    Welcome to the forums and the sky. When you need to relax just take a deep breath, let it out and arch. I know it's easy for us to tell you to relax. Don't worry, it'll happen. Good luck on your next jump!
