Helmets

All skydivers regardless of certificate of proficiency or license are required to wear appropriate, protective headgear, when skydiving.

Automatic Activation Device

Skydivers who jump at STI are required to be equipped with an appropriate and functional Automatic Activation Device capable of activating their reserve parachute in an emergency situation.

  • Parachutes being used solely for Canopy Formation or Accuracy Jumps or Extreme Canopy Piloting Jumps are exempted from the AAD requirement.
  • An exemption may be given in writing for any situation that the Operations Manager deems appropriate without the undue sacrifice of safety.

However, all skydivers, regardless of the parachute type being used, are encouraged to skydive with an AAD

AAD’S ARE REQUIRED AND NOT EXEMPTED FROM THIS POLICY FOR:

Any skydiver who is not current regardless of the equipment being used.  To be specific, all parachutes used for freefall skydives are required to have a reserve parachute AAD. Those include, but are not limited to:

  • All recreational jumpers
  • All tandem instructors (AAD on tandem parachutes).
  • All camera/video jumpers
  • All PFF skydives (instructor’s parachutes), regardless of number of jumps.
  • All student skydivers require 2 AAD’s, one on the reserve container, another on the main container.

Novice Skydivers

  • Skydivers who have less than 100 skydives and
  • non-current skydivers may be required to do a “Survival Skills Jump” with a coach or instructor.
