You can never practice your emergency procedures too much. EJECT (Experienced Jumper Emergency Cutaway Training) is a monthly review course for all experienced jumpers to get together and go over emergency procedures. Get hands on and go over all the procedures in the hanging harness. Experience cutting away your own rig, bring your rig and we can set it up for you. One of Skydive Chicago’s S&TAs or instructors will be helping you go over the procedures and answer any questions that may arise. Don’t let Safety Day be the only day you practice.
