Uniform Skydiving Literature and Manuals

USPA schools use standardized literature to ensure consistent and safe training for skydivers. Two crucial publications commonly used within the USPA skydiving training program are the SIM (Skydiver's Information Manual) and IRM (Instructor's Rating Manual).

  • Skydiver's Information Manual (SIM): SIM is the primary source of information for learning about skydiving and safety within the USPA program. This book provides information on rules, techniques, and procedures that skydivers need to follow, covering various aspects of skydiving, including jumping techniques, safety rules, equipment, airspace, and more.
  • Instructor's Rating Manual (IRM): IRM is a publication designed for skydiving instructors, offering guidelines and information necessary for successfully teaching other skydivers. IRM also includes information on how skydiving students are evaluated and how assessments are conducted for different instructor ratings.

These two publications are crucial for standardized training within USPA schools, ensuring that all skydivers and instructors have access to the same information and guidelines, promoting safety and consistency in the sport of skydiving. It's essential for all school participants and instructors to carefully study and adhere to the instructions outlined in the SIM and IRM to ensure a safe skydiving experience.

Up to 4000 meters on your first jump

In a standard skydiving course, students make their first ten parachute jumps from an altitude of 1,000 meters during which they will not experience freefall. In a tandem skydive, your first jump will be performed at an altitude of up to 4,000 meters and you will experience up to 60 seconds in freefall.

No medical examination

The biggest advantage of tandem skydiving is that you do not need to pass a medical exam. If you have any questions regarding health conditions and tandem skydiving, please contact us and we will be pleased to advise you.

Only 10 minutes jump briefing

Unlike a standard skydiving course which can last up to several weeks, before performing a tandem skydive all you need is to pass a short 15-minute briefing during which your tandem instructor will explain the basic principles of skydiving.

Several Skydiving locations

Tandem Experts offer several locations to experience your first tandem skydive. You can choose between locations in Croatia and Slovenia. We are organizing tandem skydiving in Zagreb and Varaždin in Croatia and Ljubljana and Maribor in Slovenia
