Skydiving Progression

Rule the Skies!

NOTE: This is a brain dump of all my thoughts and notes on my education and progression as a skydiver. It’s a living document and more here for me than you :) - but hope you find it useful in some way as well!

Canopy Handling

“Canopy Handling” on BPA Site.

### Common Terms **”Upwind”** - flying _against_ the direction of the wind, meaning it will slow you down. For example - if you’re “upwind of the PLA”, then there’s a good chance that you might find yourself unable to make it back and need to find an alternate landing area.

“The Accuracy Trick”

CH1 - The Basics, Safety, Landing Patterns and Toggle Usage

CH2 - Riser Usage, Wind and Turbulence, Traffic and Canopy Drills
