Canopy Course - Landings & Equipment 29th Aug 2018

Canopy course with Jack Bradford for all levels
Perfecting Your Landing Technique & Understanding and Utilising Equipment

2 part canopy course for all experience levels including 5 jumps.

Part A - Perfecting Your Landing Technique
Do you struggle to land consistently on your feet, or do you struggle to deal with those “crosswind gusts” just as you come to flare? Are you as comfortable landing in nil winds or downwind as you are landing into a moderate headwind? Starting by defining what we mean by a good landing, we look at the following topics with video debriefs of up to 5 jumps to work on technique:
-2 stage flare - the real definition
-Common landing problems
-Landing in different conditions
-The “cross-wind gust”
-The PLF
-Rear riser landings

Part B - Understanding and Utilising Equipment
Do you make the most of your equipment under canopy, and have you even got the right equipment for the job? We take a look at various pieces of kit that can help or hinder us under canopy and how to use them safely. Topics include:
-AADs & activation parameters
-Container features & riser mods
-Sliders
-Canopy customisations and condition
-Post deployment admin

Beech to the Beach - Putsborough Beach 15th Sep 2018

After a long time of planning we can now confirm our plans to land on Putsborough beach!

Putsborough Beach is one of the nicest and best beaches to surf in North Devon. The beach is a 400m wide and 2.5 KM piece of beautiful sand and very enticing to skydive above.

The plan will be to leave Dunkeswell airfield at 16:30, fly low admiring the beautiful Devon landscape and climb to altitude over the beach. We plan to gain 15,000 feet altitude airspace approval for the jump.

Details:
• All skydivers must be C licence or above to jump
• If you wish to carry a camera, smoke or a flag you must have completed 5 display jumps previously (this may be able to be arrange beforehand)
• There will be cameramen filming some of the skydives
• You must be happy jumping in groups of more than 4 (FF, TR and FS)

Cost: £115 per person

What’s included:
• Low level flight to the beach (approx. 60 miles)
• Display team organisation
• Ground crew at landing area
• A minibus to shuttle all skydivers between Putsborough Beach and Croyde
• A Coach to take all skydivers back to Dunkeswell Airfield
• A burger and chips from the café on Putsborough Beach
• A few beers or ciders on landing

There are a very limited number of spaces and all need to be confirmed and registered by 15th August

Registration is £60. If the event cannot go ahead due to bad weather, the £60 will be added to your account as jump tickets for the future. Registration is non-refundable.

All skydivers must have jumped at Dunkeswell Airfield DZ during the morning of the beach landing.

Don’t miss this one off opportunity to jump over and onto one of the UK’s most beautiful beaches.

**All jumpers must wear a floatation device**
