Are you on level 7 (first solo)?

Quote:
Level 7jump will will be qualified to jump on your own without an instructor. Your first solo jump is normally a 'hop and pop', where you jump, carry out a 5 second delay and deploy your parachute.

Hi Pete
Level 7 is AFF. I am doing RAPS.
With AFF you exit with 2 qualified instructors from 14000ft. On RAPS you start at 3500ft static line then work your way up on you own. 3 Sec then 5sec then 2x 10 sec 15 second and so on....turns, loops n trackin.....
Both RAPS and AFF courses get you qualified Cat 8.
Never got to jump today Rain and cloud but you know that because its Summer
