Why should you join?
The European Skydiving Symposium is the only European skydiving-oriented conference of this size. It brings together the experts, members of the skydiving community, instructors and industry gear specialists. Although there is a market area for sponsor products, it is not a trade fair style event. The conference will host a variety of presentations about safety, incident analysis, new innovations, discussion panel debates and more.
The symposium will be held directly before the 2022 European skydiving season. Which organizers believe is the perfect time to gather as many members of our skydiving community together. Together we can revise safety procedures, learn new things, meet new people or simply plan for skydiving boogies or meetings for the upcoming season!
Don’t miss out on the fun!
Of course not everything at the symposium is going to be serious discussions. There will be plenty of opportunity to have fun with your skydiving community members as well! Organizers know to prepare for some fun too. There will be The Grand Raffle with a chance to win goodies, vouchers and prizes from sponsors! Fun activities include canopy flight simulators, blind pack job races and a legendary after party at the Aviator Club. Which we can all agree, is the perfect name for a bar to host a skydiving party!
Although there is still time to go before the European Skydiving Symposium 2022, there is a agenda in place. Organizers have a planned format for the event. The symposium is to be split into four separate tracks: general audience, tandem masters, instructors and riggers.
So much interesting content has already been announced! Hard opening analysis and prevention, aircraft emergency procedures, best big way organizing practises, packing seminars, danger zone analysis, worldwide skydiving accident statistics analysis and much more. The general audience track will be available to all, every day.
Tandem masters, instructors and riggers
The other 3 tracks will be split into separate days. The first day, the additional track will be regarding tandem jumps. Although dedicated to tandem masters, camera flyers are also welcome. There will be open discussions on tandem safety vs scalability of market, exit orders in tandems and incident analyses.
On the second day, there will be a track created for instructors who are working with students. Regardless if you stick with AFF students during the ground course, or you fly with the newbies in the air – this track is for you. Gather tips and hints from very experienced AFF instructors and examiners. Review extremely difficult AFF jumps along with analysis, and skills for communication with students.
During the third day there will once again be the general audience track, along with the fourth track for riggers. There will be a chance to participate in an advanced rigger workshop. Which will help you to pack reserves in a smooth and safe method. And there will be lots of tips and information from manufacturers on how to handle their type of containers. Including how to spot issues before they become problems.
It is an absolute pleasure to announce that a guest of honour is at the European Skydiving Symposium is none other than the legend himself, Bill Booth from UPT. Bill is a living legend in the skydiving sport, and often called “the father of skydiving”. Bill is going to share a presentation full of funny anecdotes, inspirational context of his work, and how his engineering work changed the industry. If you didn’t already know, Bill Booth is the inventor of skydiving game changers such as 3-ring system, Skyhook RSL and tandem drogue. This is a presentation that you will want to be part of!
As mentioned, although it is not a trade fair, there is still an expo area for our favourite sponsors! You won’t want to miss wandering around the expo area, where you can meet product representatives, industry experts and athletes. Share discussions on innoviations, try on some gear and maybe even get some deals on some of the best manufactures in the sport!
