You already have jump experience
People who are current jumpers or already have jump experience (no tandem jumps) from the past and followed a basic round canopy jump course it is possible to join PGH and jump with us.
If you jumped in the recent past (less than one year) there is the possibility to follow just a Harness test or 'refresher' (shortened course). A refresher will take about one day of time. The person must show his/ her logbook in order to determine the level of experience. Is it longer than one year ago you jumped for the last time, you need to follow the basic ground course again.
