is instructor-assisted planning for the

landing pattern for the day's conditions. You can use a "winds aloft" forecast from the National Weather Service to determine the best location and procedure to getting out of the plane. Also, because winds aloft is just a forecast and winds change throughout the day, observing previous jumpers' canopy descents can also be useful.
