Skydiving requirements for SOLO jumpers

  • • The FAI category «D» (500+ skydive jumps) is mandatory for all participants of the expedition, exclude
    tandem passengers
  • • No medical contraindications for parachute jumps.
  • • A valid logbook with the clearance for performing parachute jumps in the year 2020.
  • • Approved for operation parachute system, with a legal mark of admission in 2020.
  • • The insurance Certificate with the amount of insurance coverage of at least 100,000 euros, taking into
    account the performing of parachute jumps in the Arctic region.

Parachute system requirements:

  • The landing area on Barneo Ice Camp will be equipped with everything necessary for safe performing of
    parachute jumps, however, taking into account the specifics of the terrain, we strongly do not recommend
    using the main parachute domes with a load of more than 1.5 lb/sq.ft, it is also highly undesirable to use
    high-speed elliptical canopies. The use of high-speed domes with oblique ribs is PROHIBITED. This
    restriction is caused by the possibility of ridges of hummocks, ice ledges, ice crevices, rapaks and other
    obstacles in the area of the jumps. Moreover, if you need to choose a backup landing area, the high-speed
    canopy may not provide the necessary level of safety. Seven-section parachutes, such as PD Spectre and
    analogues are ideal for performing such jumps, as they are the most predictable and perfectly controlled
    in any conditions. The size of the main canopy should usually be at least 150 sq.ft.
  • 1) The weight of the tandem passenger must not exceed 130 kg
  • 2) No medical contraindications for parachute jumps in tandem.

We advise you optional basic polar expedition clothes kit, but everyone endures cold differently. Therefore, if you have some items in your wardrobe, which are tested in cold environment and suit you, you are welcome to bring them.
