2011 Safety Day

In the northeast the snow is melting, the birds are chirping, the skies are clearing, that must mean skydiving season is around the corner! What better way to kick it off than to attend Safety Day. The majority of cold climate skydivers hibernate for the winter and have not stepping into those legs straps and threaded their chest strap in a few months.

Have you seen the changes in this years SIM & IRM? For that matter when was the last time you peeled the cover back and really read the SIM, not just thumb through it 😉

Seriously though, this is a great time for some review to help get back into the swing of things. There is a wealth of information available on the USPA site regarding Safety Day.

The SIM is available online, and a document highlighting all the new changes.

UPDATE: PD has make a great post on canopy inspection, well worth the time to watch the video!

Let’s try and make this year even safer than last year!
