SDC Rhythm 4-way team, whose website has always offered tons of free resources, have developed an App containing everything the new skydiver wants and needs to know about the sport. First offered on the Apple platform, an Android version has just been released.
Rhythm Skydiving 101 is free, easy to find your way around and absolutely packed with useful information, contained within a well-designed structure.
There are four sections:
Fundamentals of Flight covers basic body position, forwards/backwards movement, side-slides and turns, demonstrated in the Paraclete XP wind tunnel, narrated by long-time team member Janette Lefkowitz.
The Basics section includes:
I can't believe Rhythm is giving away all this information for free!
This contains a series of skills skydives to progress though, each with a color-coordinated diagram and a video, narrated by Rhythm member Steve Lefkowitz, with freeze-frames to highlight the important points.
“We are especially excited about the flash cards, like the A and B license test study guides, malfunctions practice, and formation study guides. Also, download to your phone any videos you like for easy access offline. Enjoy!“
Nice one Rhythm, Thank you!
