RIG MUST BE ON – leg straps and chest straps correctly threaded prior to boarding. Seat belts must be worn on the plane until 1,000 ft AGL – no exception. If you choose not to wear your helmet, you must secure it to your chest strap or seat belt.
The pilot spots the plane and generally no corrections are needed. Open the door and be ready to go at the orange light. The solid green light is the exit light. All groups continue to exit until the green light is off. Stay in the airplane for another jump run.
Exit Order: Belly – largest to small groups, Belly Tracking, Freefly – largest to small groups, Freefly Tracking (any kind of tracking other than belly tracking: angle, steep tracks, moving tracking jumps), Students, Tandems, Wingsuits, Crew. Special note: Skysurfers (yes, we have the occasional skysurfer) will exit 2nd or 3rd out on the first pass to ensure that they are directly over the DZ.
With reported upper winds of 0-10 knots, please allow between 5 – 7 seconds between exits (take into account the time it takes to climb out of the aircraft.) For winds of 15 knots or higher please use the following formula: Take Upper winds and divide by half which will give you the recommended amount of time between exits!
15 knots – 7 seconds between exit groups
30 knots – 15 seconds between exit groups
40 knots – 20 seconds between exit groups
DO NOT Cross the runway below 1,000 feet.
• LANDING PATTERN –
• MAIN / EXPERIENCED LANDING AREA – You must have 200 jump/C-License minimum. In light/variable winds, land towards the first person down sets the pattern. No more than a 90-degree turn on approach is allowed. No holding in brakes, spiraling or carving over or through this landing area. Watch for heavy traffic.
• STUDENT LANDING AREA – Use Skydiving windsock for directional control. Follow the first person to land. Students have the right of way. (do not fly your base leg over the main landing area as this is a very heavy traffic zone).
• HIGH PERFORMANCE LANDING AREA – Please advise others in the aircraft of your intentions. Extreme caution and visual awareness is advised. Only the most aggressive canopy pilots should land there. Sometimes less experienced jumpers land in this area due to the size of the group or the spot or other unforeseen circumstances. High performance canopy pilots: please be cautious.
