Skydiving Recurrence Requirements

At AXIS Flight School we meet jumpers from all walks of life. Be it a Student who just received their A-License, the Weekend Warrior, and the Hard-Core Competitors. No matter what your experience level, each license has strict rules regarding proficiency and currency. Since we encounter question about retrains all the time, I thought it might be a good idea to highlight some of the information here:

“Returning skydivers require thorough practical training in the following subject areas:
a. aircraft procedures
b. equipment
c. exit and freefall procedures
d. canopy control and landings
e. emergency procedures

USPA A-license holders who have not made a freefall skydive within 60 days should make at least one jump under the supervision of a currently rated USPA instructional rating holder until demonstrating altitude awareness, freefall control on all axes, tracking, and canopy skills sufficient for safely jumping in groups

USPA B-license holders who have not made a freefall skydive within the preceding 90 days should make at least one jump under the supervision of a USPA instructional rating holder until demonstrating the ability to safely exercise the to safely exercise the privileges of that license.

USPA C- and D-license holders who have not made a freefall skydive within the preceding six months should make at least one jump under the supervision of a USPA instructional rating holder until demonstrating the ability to safely exercise the privileges of that license.

Students who have not jumped within the preceding 30 days should make at least one jump under the direct supervision of an appropriately rated USPA Instructor.

DZ policy: Students/Non Licensed jumpers who have not jumped within the last year will need to take a full FJC ground school training. Recurrency jumps to be determined at instructor’s discretion.”- USPA SIM.
