This course meets the requirements of the B license application as well as completes the canopy proficiency card required by USPA.
Not only will you learn necessary basic skills required to obtain your B License, but you will also learn additional survival skills that every jumper should know. This course goes above and beyond your basic canopy course.
You do not need to be an A licensed skydiver to attend this course but you must be cleared to self supervise and have completed your hop and pops. At the completion of the course, the B license exam will be administered at no additional charge.
It is a recommendation that you get a packer for this course.
If you have never attended a formal canopy course, this course is for you as well.
Designed for jumpers that have already been through a basic or essential skills canopy course or that already have the necessary skills required to attend an advanced course.
This course teaches more advanced techniques which enables canopy pilots to get more performance out of their wings and become safer pilots by learning more about their canopies and also the fundamentals of progressing safely.
Skills building will be tailored to swoopers and non-swoopers alike. Wherever you are in your current abilities is where we will start and progress from there.
Participants of the Essential Skills Course may easily transition into this course.
Offered for the past 5 years, this was the first and only course offered to tandem instructors in the U.S. The purpose of the course is to provide additional training on how to improve landings and lessen the chances of injuring students. This course focuses on consistent soft landings, accuracy, how to avoid/handle turbulence and other unforeseen issues. This course is a must for DZs wanting to improve or maintain their safety record.
