Safety Training

The following safety situations may or may not ever be experienced. Unlike regular skydiving routines which are practiced and refined constantly, the following situations must have planned additional practice. Good training programs will plan to have you repeat or review all key safety situations a minimum of 6 times within 30 days or the “A” license completion. The repetition of 6 times will increase long term memory retention of these routines.

However, do periodically return and review these safety situations every couple of months.
