BPA Tracking Manual published
New from BPA is the Tracking Manual for coaches. Available for download from the traning manuals page of the BPA website, the Tracking Coaching Manual is designed to teach skydivers the art of tracking in a multitude of axes. It covers the training requirements to obtain each of BPA's tracking grades and promote 'in-air' safety in preparation for jumping with others. Tracking grades TR1, TR2 and TR3 require successful completion of the standards set out in the BPA Operations Manual Section 2, Para 6.10 Tracking [TR].
