The theoretical part lasts about 5 to 6 hours and has as main objective to prepare the student for the first jump, so that it takes place under the best possible safety conditions.
It is important to adopt a correct and steady descent position and a safe landing. Most of all ensure that you can handle any incident!
During this training the instructor will present the equipment, changes in the sail, landing techniques, incident management and the whole process.
Before each jump a briefing will always be done. That is, the objectives of the jump will be presented, what is expected in the course of the jump and the techniques to be applied. All phases of the jump will be remembered and it is confirmed that the student has the whole equipment for the parachute jump. Before jumping, you have to analyze the weather and wind and choose the appropriate circuit taking into account the weather conditions of the moment.
After the conclusion of the briefing, we are ready for the first jump. After the student is equipped, the instructor performs an inspection and then, they proceed to board the plane. For safety reasons the approach to the airplane is always done in the back to avoid problems with the propeller. The instructor will show you how to board and where to stay on the plane.
UP TO 4200M
After taking off the student will be able to take off the helmet for easier communication. During the 15-minute climb the instructor will show the student the jump zone viewed from above, the student will review all signs and position corrections and review all the details to take into account during the jump. When they reach 3000 meters the student must turn on the radio and check the parachute again (handles, straps and security system).
After the 15 minute flight time it is time to do the latest security checks. The plane is in position and we proceed to open the door. The first parachutists will leave and then it is the turn of the student and his instructors. At the invitation of the instructors the student approaches the door with his knees facing the wing! A last breath, a wave to synchronize with the instructors and the student gives an impulse to move out of the air accompanied by his instructors.
THE 3 FIRST JUMPS
For the first three jumps the student is accompanied by two instructors. After leaving the plane in 10 seconds, the student will reach the speed of 200-220km / h. During these three jumps the instructors will help the student to have a good flight, a correct position, help to check the altimeter and above all to relax and enjoy this new sensation, the free fall.
FROM 4TH TO 7TH SALTO
These jumps are accompanied by an instructor. They are also filmed and after opening the parachute the student continue to be accompanied by an intercom. The student will have the opportunity to learn how to make loops, front flips, back flips and have more fun during the jumps. In addition, the student will learn more about the parachute flight.
THE OPENING OF BUMPER
At 1500m if the student can not open the parachute, the instructor opens it by the student, pulling the "hand-deploy" that will cause the parachute to open. This takes about 2 to 4 seconds at 150 meters. It is now the responsibility of the student to verify that the parachute is well open and apply what he has learned in course theory.
After the parachute is opened the student will be accompanied by his instructor via radio. This contact is maintained throughout the flight time with the parachute open and through the radio will be given all the necessary indications so that it has a smooth and perfect landing.
Back in the hangar will be a debriefing about the jump made. It is at this moment that the videos made during the jump are analyzed, the positive and negative points and the points to improve in the next jump are highlighted.
