There are rules and regulations for CRW safety & training requirements,
and for competition & performance requirements.
In general, most federations adopt the competition rules
developed by the FAI, but there may be some local variation. So check the FAI
rules for international competitions and your
national parachuting federation for local competition, general safety, &
I have split the rules & regulations as follows:
- BASIC CRW COMPETITION RULES. This is the most relevant to
competitors. If you want rules about particular competitive disciplines, go
- GENERAL CRW COMPETITION RULES. This is more relevant to team
managers & captains. If you want generic CRW competition rules,
videography, judging, etc, go to:
- CRW SPECIFIC REGULATIONS - SAFETY & COMPETITION. If you want
rules about training tables, general CRW safety, records, national
team selection, etc, go to:
- COMPLETE PARACHUTING REGULATIONS. If you want to know the complete
regulations relating to parachuting, go to the links on this page:
