Why was it created?
In Australia, it’s fairly common knowledge that we lose a lot of jumpers between the 50-100 jump mark. This handbook was born out of the desire to inspire and support skydivers at this critical stage in their skydiving careers.
Anyone can follow the sequence of jumps or use the Handbook as a ‘pick and mix’, with tips and tricks included in each section as prompts and advice. The handbook gives jumpers from around the 50 jump mark (Certificate B in Australia), fun ideas for skydives they can try with people of similar experience levels, and aims to bring some focus to their jumps while giving them some guidance.
It’s also a great resource for mentors, coaches and Load Organisers to help them prompt or assist newer jumpers with ideas of suitable jumps they can try.
