Rec.Skydiving F.A.Q. Sheet (United Kingdom)


=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- This posting constitutes a complement to the Rec.Skydiving F.A.Q. with specific reference to the pursuit of the sport in the United Kingdom. Its intended audience is those resident in, or planning to visit, the UK. [HOT NEWS - now in HTML at http://www.shew.clara.net/faquk.htm] Additions, corrections, or suggestions can be posted or emailed to the current maintainer, Pete Shew, pete@remove_this_bit@shew.clara.net. NOTE: BPA-OM refers to the British Parachute Association Operations Manual 1984 (Second re-write February 1996). Rec.skydiving has regular questions along the lines of "If I go to the USA to take an AFF course, will I be able to jump when I return to the UK?", and "I'm planning to come to the UK for a few days, where can I jump and what documents do I need?". This FAQ attempts to answer some of these questions. Please read to see if your question can be answered before posting a question to rec.skydiving. If you canAND answer, when you get it, for possible inclusion in a later version. I have arranged this FAQ into the following sections: -. The British training systems and how they differ from the US equivalents. -. British medical and reserve packing requirements -. Requirements for UK jumpers abroad and foreign jumpers in the UK. -. British Parachute Association details -. British Drop Zone listing. -. Disclaimer *=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

1. The British training systems and how they differ from the US


equivalents. *=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=* Training is carried out at parachuting clubs which are usually run under the auspices of the British Parachute Association, although there are a few exceptions. Before being accepted on a course you will have to provide evidence of fitness to parachute - either a self declaration, or if over 40, a doctors medical certificate.

1.1 Qualifications of parachutists


The BPA qualifies parachutists according to a category system. The significant levels are: Cat 8 - qualified as a parachutist. Restricted formation skydiving, restricted weather conditions, can use throw away pilot chute, must wear a Protec helmet. Cat 9 - some FS and weather restrictions lifted. Cat 10 - all FS and weather restrictions lifted. In addition there are Fиdиration Aиronautique Internationale (FAI) certificates of which the only significant ones are: FAI Permitted to do certain demo jumps, may be jumpmaster. FAI This is the ultimate qualification unless instructor or rigger qualification is sought.

1.2 Ram Air Progression System (RAPS) or Static Line Squares to Cat 8


This is available at most Drop Zones in the UK now, and has totally replaced rounds at a large number. This system uses the modern ram air or "square" sports parachute from the first jump. The square parachute has a higher forward speed, may be jumped in higher wind conditions (giving a significantly higher number of jumpable days) and a potentially much more gentle landing than the traditional, military style round parachute The student first uses a Static Line square parachute that is opened automatically on leaving the aircraft by means of the "static line" attached to a strong point within the aircraft. The student also has a piggyback mounted reserve parachute and an Automatic Activation Device (AAD) which will attempt to deploy the reserve if conditions merit it. During progression, the student with move on to a ripcord deployed version of the same equipment. The ripcord may be mounted on the legstrap or the bottom of the container - it is not usually possible for a student to change between equipment with different ripcord locations, so moving between DZs may be difficult. The progression system requires the student to demonstrate over a series of jumps, stability and ability to pull a dummy ripcord handle before progressing to freefall. A further series of jumps incorporating increasing freefall delays and showing control by performing turns, back loops and tracks leads to the Category 8 qualification dive of a half series. That is, a dive exit, back loop, alternate 360 degree turns, a short track and wave off, usually from 8000ft. After achieving Cat 8 the parachutist may then convert from ripcord to a throw away pilot chute. This must be on kit fitted with an Automatic Activation Device (AAD). The absolute minimum number of jumps is 17 or 18 depending on how the manual is interpreted, but expect a good progression to take less than 30 jumps. A slow one may take 50 or 60 jumps. A variation of the RAPS progression allows the student who has reached Category 5 to transfer to the AFF system at Level 3. (This could reduce the cost of AFF by avoiding the expensive early AFF jumps with two instructors).

1.3 Static Line Round progression to Cat 8


Still in common use in the UK is the static line round parachute course. This is largely used on "charity farms" where the majority of first time jumpers are doing charity associated jumping and are unlikely to stay in the sport. This is the traditional first introduction to parachuting and uses a round parachute which is automatically opened when the student leaves the plane - just like in the war movies. The round can be steered and has a forward speed of five to eight m.p.h., and is an extremely safe and reliable piece of kit. The student will also have a belly mounted reserve parachute. The progression system requires the student to demonstrate over a series of jumps, stability and ability to pull a dummy ripcord handle before progressing to freefall. A further series of jumps incorporating increasing freefall delays and showing control by performing turns, back loops and tracks leads to the Category 8 qualification dive of a half series. That is, a dive exit, back loop, alternate 360 degree turns, a short track and wave off, usually from 8000ft. The student may convert to a RAPS canopy at any time during the progression subject to approval of the Club Chief Instructor (CCI). No progression may take place for at least the first two jumps. The conversion may be left until after Cat 8. After Cat 8 (and conversion to RAPS kit if necessary) the parachutist may then convert to a throw away pilot chute. This must be on kit fitted with an Automatic Activation Device (AAD). The absolute minimum number of jumps is 17 or 18 depending on how the manual is interpreted, but expect a good progression to take less than 30 jumps, plus conversion jumps (two lots).

1.4 Accelerated Freefall (AFF) to Cat 8


AFF or Accelerated Free Fall takes the student to Cat. 8 in just eight training jumps plus ten consolidation jumps if all goes well. The equipment used is a ripcord deployed ram air parachute with AAD like the RAPS kit. All training jumps except the last are from at least 10000 feet, and the first three are with two instructors holding the student and performing in-air coaching. A major part of AFF is the pre jump briefing, and the post jump debrief, many centres use air to air video to supplement the training and to review the jump. The seventh training jump is the same half series that the category jumpers perform. The final jump in the training is a hop and pop from around 5000ft to simulate aircraft emergency bale out and give experience of subterminal deployment. NOTE: THIS IS NOT AN AFF REQUIREMENT IN THE USA. Following the hop and pop, ten consolidation jumps must be made at an approved AFF club before Cat 8 is awarded. NOTE: THIS IS NOT AN AFF REQUIREMENT IN THE USA. Conversion to throw away pilot chute deployment may be carried out during the consolidation. This is the most likely cause for problems with UK students going to the USA to do AFF courses. Unless they use BPA approved instructors they may have problems when returning to the UK. I dongeneral guidelines, but I am aware of cases where the student has had to repeat the half series jump. As far as I am aware, the student will always have to do the hop and pop and the ten consolidation jumps. I remember one case (a few years ago) where someone returned after doing AFF in Florida and a number of FS jumps, and they were asked to return to the category system by their home DZ! The UK student should also be careful of cheap AFF courses offered at boogies and DZs in continental Europe - their rules may be different and you may have to repeat some of the course back in the UK. [This is an area in which I need more information and case histories. I will also try to tie down a few CCIs]. Of course, there will be no problems with AFFs achieved outside the UK if the instructors are current BPA AFF instructors. This is the case in Skydive Sebastian in Florida, and many UK instructors offer AFF courses in France and Spain. The minimum number of jumps is 18 including consolidation and conversion, and is unlikely to be much more.

1.5 Progression to Cat 10.


The WARP system is the usual method of progression to Cat 10. This is identical to the US WARP system, so no problems should be encountered. The old BPA progression system (4 point 4 way) still exists but is out of favour. Skydive University training is also now acceptable.

1.6 Progression to "D" licence - just keep loggin" them jumps.

2. British medical and reserve packing requirements


*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

2.1 Medical certificates


As of the 14th October 1996, the requirements are that a parachutist on reaching 40 or first starting to parachute over 40 requires a medical certificate endorsed and stamped by a medical doctor. Subsequently, and up to the ago of fifty, an annual self certification is required. Beyond the age of fifty, a tri-annual medical certificate endorsed and stamped by a medical doctor is required, with self certification for each of the intermediate years.

2.2 Reserve repacking


In The UK, reserves must be inspected and repacked at least every six months. This must be carried out by a person authorised rto pack that specific reserve/container/AAD combination. There is still a deal of confusion over the qualifications for repacking reserves. My understanding is the following order of qualification: > Rigger examiner, advanced rigger, rigger all may assemble and pack any reserve into any container with any AAD provided that they have the relevant manuals and safety notices to hand. Qualified riggers may also perform remedial work and AAD installation. > Advanced packers may assemble and pack any reserve into any container with any AAD provided that they have the relevant manuals and safety notices to hand. Remedial work is restricted - my guess is that if can be called assembly it is OK, if it is installation it is not OK. Fitting a Cypres to a "Cypres ready" conatiner is acceptable - installing the Cypres pocket is not. > Holders of advanced packing tickets may assemble and pack reserves/container/AAD combinations that are specifically endorsed on their advanced packing certificate, provided that they have the relevant manuals and safety notices to hand. Remedial work is restricted - my guess is that if can be called assembly it is OK, if it is installation it is not OK. Fitting a Cypres to a "Cypres ready" conatiner is acceptable - installing the Cypres pocket is not. It is no longer possible to obtain an advanced packing certificate as the Advanced Packer qualification has superceded it, but it is still possible to get additional endorsements on an existing certificate. > Holders of packing certificates endorsed for round reserves may pack round reserves. Not many of these left - I hope. > Instructors may pack round reserves - this is another hang over from the dark ages! *=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

3. Requirements for UK jumpers abroad and foreign jumpers in the UK


*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

3.1 UK jumpers abroad


Usually your current documentation is sufficient. Most countries will respect your reserve packing (but I think the US may demand that your reserve repack is less than 4 months old - the UK cycle is 6 monthly). The BPA third party insurance is NOT valid in North America, so USPA membership or equivalent may be required. Medical cover is strongly recommended when jumping abroad - make sure you have your form E111 when jumping in the European Union.

3.2 Foreign jumpers in the UK


BPA-OM Section 6. EQUIPMENT, Para 8.5 Reserve parachutes that have been packed in a foreign country, in a manner acceptable to the parachuting organisation in that country, may be jumped at a BPA club for up to 120 days from the date of that packing. BPA-OM Section 11 MEDICAL, Para 2.6 Foreign Parachutists. A Parachutist from a foreign country may parachute at a BPA club if he/she fulfills the medical requirements of that parachutist's own country. BPA-OM Section 12 DOCUMENTATION Para 1.1 All Parachutists, riggers, pilots, judges and DZ controllers must be current members of the British Parachute Association. In general, foreign parachutists have no problems jumping in the UK - just be sure to bring all your documents. Note that headgear, an altimeter and a knife are mandatory in the UK *=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

4. The British Parachute Association


*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=* [This is the major parachuting authority in the UK. It is now recognised by the British Civilian Aviation Authority (CAA) as an Approved Organisation (28 Mar 1996), and is deputised to handle certain matters on behalf the CAA. I am not certain whether this extends to the regulation of non-BPA parachuting centres or whether they are still answerable directly to the CAA.] British Parachute Association, Wharf Way, Glen Parva, Leicester LE2 9TF Tel: 0116 278 5271 Fax: 0116 247 7662 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Officers: BPA Chairman Lofty Thomas BPA Vice Chairman Phil Gibbs Council members Chris Allen, Paul Applegate, Steve Apps, Tye Boughen, Peter Carroll, Dave Emerson, Phil Gibbs, Steven Hoy, Graham Liggins, Ian Marshall, Michael Matthews, Charles Ross, John Saunders, John Smyth, Lofty Thomas --------------------------------------------------------------------- Magazine: Sports Parachutist 3 Burton Street Peterborough PE1 5HA Tel/Fax: 01733 755860 email: sportpara@aol.com Ed: Lesley Gale *=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*
