You are required to successfully complete the following before making your category C skydive
This time around things start to get "real". During this category you will make two jumps with two instructors where you will learn to fly with only one instructor, deploy your parachute without assistance, and fly a canopy pattern by yourself. Like every category, this one is designed to build on what you have learned up to this point. You will be introduced to and begin to think about and practice planning for off-field landings, obstacle avoidance, downwind landings, and canopy patterns for higher winds. You will also meet your parachute rigger and learn about the reserve parachute system and equipment inspection and maintenance. After successful completion of category C you will advance to one instructor so take this part seriously; this is your chance to demonstrate to your instructors that you can (with minimal or no guidance) fly in a stable way, maintain altitude awareness, deploy on time, and land safely.
Again, relax and have fun while learning and you will be successful
Please read the following before arriving for your category C skydive. NOTE: The parachute owners manual is not for the canopy you are currently jumping but it gives you an idea of what one looks like and the type of information provided inside.
Take the category C quiz to see if you have the knowledge
