By Dan Poynter.
This compact instruction manual is a basic text for static line and tandem students using square canopies.
The Parachuting Manual is a pocket-sized condensation of the first jump course.
With it, the student may review all the basics at home during the week. Some of those basics are how to move about the aircraft, exits, body position, the count, malfunction recognition, emergency procedures, canopy control, landings, and spotting.
There are freefall tables and regulations as well as an explanation of parachute nomenclature and function.
A brief log in the back of the manual allows the student to record his or her first few weekends of jumping.
For static line and tandem courses.
Used as a training text by skydiving centers worldwide.
