USPA Canopy Course for “B” License
Why the USPA Canopy Course for your “B” license?
After graduating AFF and moving through your “A” lic, the reality is, you are just learning how to save your own soul. Most incidents and accidents occur under a fully open and functioning canopy. And the numbers are not getting better. Add the fact you are probably now thinking about downsizing, now is the perfect time to give you some info you can use to make better flying and buying decisions. And, because you who you are being in the air affects not only you!
Moving toward your “C” license, USPA requires you to “re-familiarize” and “upgrade” your canopy awareness IQ. And we are going to make sure you have some fun doing it.
By the time you are done with this course, not only will you be on your way to obtaining your “B” license, you will build confidence in your canopy skills, from deployment, opening, negotiating traffic patterns and landing.
To speed the process of the course, you are required to do homework reading utilizing the downloadable PDF. You can do it on your phone, ipad, or the computer at the DZ.
Do your Quiz!. After reading the PDF, click the “Take your Quiz Link” on the same document. First page #4. It’s an open book quiz. Don’t have a lot of time? No problem, it’s only 10 mins. No excuses. You must pass with 75 points or more. Failed the first time? Take it again until you get it right. It’s open book.
Be at the DZ by 8:50am ready to go over the material you studied, answer questions and make 5 jumps. We will make every attempt to make sure all your jumps are videoed and debriefed with your instructor. Do NOT Get on First Load!
