The bridge part of the course is essentially split into 3 parts:
Part one: ground school
This consists of several classes during which you will learn the basic skills required to exit from an object safely. We will discuss canopy flight and landing, and some emergency situations that you might encounter. The focus will mainly be on your first PCA’d (Pilot Chute Assist) jump from the bridge as we don’t want to overload you with information about more advanced techniques. The pendulator at the BASE House will be used to ensure that you are familiar with the exit, and you can practice until you feel comfortable with the muscle memory. We will walk the landing area and make sure you are happy with the hazards, and discuss the possible canopy flight patterns. This ground school phase generally takes around a day to complete.
