Learning to fly your canopy. Category E for licence USPA

Practice your skills under canopy! Be safe!

FilmKatE

To be safe for yourself and for the rest of skydivers in the air we have to practice canopy skills each jump. In fact, buying the ticket means we’ve invested some money. So it’s just silly not to use this jump properly. Instead of useless spirals (they say funny, in my opinion stupid) to be faster on the groun we can go to the holding area and spend some time learning how our canopy is working. USPA with the SIM, wich is huge store of knowledge, can provide many helpful hints. Each kategory before licence A has the part describing exercices under canopy. So, why not to use this? If you’ve already paid? If you are in the air? Let’s go 😉 Continue reading Learning to fly your canopy. Category E for licence USPA

USPA Parachutist online

USPA Parachutist online

Just to remind to our skydivers USPA members, you can read also the online version of the monthly magazine „Parachutist”. Just click here.

When PCA (USPA’s predecessor) first published the magazine in 1957, it was not much more than a newsletter, but it did serve the very important purpose of keeping the organization’s members informed about news in the sport. In the mid-1960s, the magazine first began printing its cover in color, foreshadowing the glossy magazine you see today. Through the 1970s and ’80s,Parachutist’s circulation continued to grow as membership and advertising revenues increased. The magazine began to showcase stunning color photography inside and out. It not only kept members up-to-date on industry news, it served as a forum for opinion, disseminated safety information, covered the sport’s history, offered general-interest skydiving articles and listed events, drop zones and membership data for reference purposes.

With the rise of internet communications in the 1990s and through the 2000s, USPA Parachutist shifted its focus from news and reference to concentrate more on education, entertainment and safety features. That change in focus and the advent of technology is what you see today with this website. This is our effort to expand the reach that Parachutist has as both a safety and instructional tool.
