Please list your skydiving work experience, including ratings, events, coaching, rigging, packing, etc.
Please describe your skydiving accomplishments including licenses, ratings, teams, records, etc.
Please list three skydiving references (name, email address, and phone number). Preferably someone in a position of leadership. This is an advanced rating, we will ask your references to give us their opinion on whether they believe you would be a good candidate. We are looking for a reputable opinion about flight skills, landing skills, willingness to take instruction, and openness to feedback and criticism. A tandem rating leans highly on each individuals decision making skills during times of high and low stress. Your references should have enough skydiving experience and knowledge of your character to be able to give us an opinion.
Why do you want to become a tandem instructor?
Do you have a mentorship network? Tell us about your skydiving mentor and give an impressionable learning experience you had with him/her.
What are your short and long term goals in skydiving? Where do you plan to use your rating?
