USPA presents the primary contents of the 2023-2024 Skydiver's Information Manual online for reference by USPA members and others interested in the policies and recommendations of the U.S. Parachute Association.

USPA presents the SIM online as a free service but urges skydiving students, instructors, school owners, and others who use the manual often to obtain a full version in print. You can purchase the 2023-2024 SIM on Amazon in paperback or Kindle e-book.

SIM Translations into Other Languages

Language Translation Disclaimer

Translations of the Skydiver’s Information Manual (SIM) are prepared by third-party translators in an effort to make USPA documents accessible to those who may not read English. The official and binding documents which govern USPA are the English versions. While good faith efforts are made to provide accurate translations, portions may be incorrect and may conceivably communicate incorrect safety standards. In addition, some terminology when translated may not be completely accurate due to language differences and limitations. The United States Parachute Association (USPA) shall not be responsible or liable for any errors, omissions or ambiguities in the translated versions of documents or for any consequences of any such errors, omissions or ambiguities, including personal injury or death. Any person or entity who relies on translated content does so at their own risk. USPA shall not be liable for any losses, damages or harm, including personal injury or death, caused by reliance on the accuracy or reliability of translated documents or information. If you would like to report a translation error or inaccuracy, we encourage you to contact us.

Please note the revision date of any translated copy you are reviewing and verify that it is no earlier than the revision date of the corresponding English version. Any edits made to the original English version after the translated version’s revision date would not be reflected in the translation.
