Sunday 5th May 2019
Canopy course with Jack Bradford for all levels
Landing Technique and Equipment
2 part canopy course for all experience levels including 5 jumps.
Part A - 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
● Common landing problems
● Landing in different conditions
● The “cross-wind gust”
● The PLF
● Rear riser landings
Part B - Equipment for Canopy Flight
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

£200 for the course, £110 of which is jump tickets, £90 for your Instruction. Maximum 8 per course.

Canopy course with Jack Bradford for all levels
Landing Patterns and Avoiding Danger
2 part canopy course for all experience levels including 5 jumps.
Part A - Landing Patterns
Making 2 left hand turns, avoiding the runway and landing near or in the circle seems simple
enough, but can we do better? A good landing pattern will give us a high level of accuracy,
sets us up for a comfortable landing and is easy to predict for others around us, as well as
giving us plenty of alternate options should we need them. On most jumps we can get away
with a half-assed pattern and reasonable accuracy, but that won’t always be the case. What
if you’re landing off the DZ or find yourself heading towards another jumper on final? Or how
about getting your display clearance? We’ll cover:
● Planning your canopy ride
● Assistive Equipment
● Building the stack
● Patterns in different conditions
● Making adjustments
● Dangerous habits
Part B - Avoiding Dangerous Situations
We all know that low turns are dangerous; yet dozens of skydivers every year continue to
make low turns with often disastrous consequences. This is just one of the many situations
that puts skydivers in danger every year. From a recap of the basics, to detailed knowledge
and advanced techniques, we will cover the following topics to help you stay safe under
canopy:
● Low turns
● Canopy collisions
● Turbulence
● Stalls
● Off landings

£200 for the course, £110 of which is jump tickets, £90 Instructors fee. Maximum 8 per course.
