Live Water Training Requirement for USPA
"B" License - Wet water Skydiving Training
is periodically offered, email
us if you are interested.
“B” License Water
Friday, 6:00 PM
July 8, 2011
$40 cash, payable upon arrival.
This training is open to everyone, including students. We will meet at the Skydive Orange hanger at 6:00 PM sharp for a mandatory twenty minute briefing, and then go to a nearby pool. Please be on time. If you are coming from NOVA, DC or Richmond, plan accordingly for the awful traffic and leave early.
No need to register…just be there on time!
Bring your bathing suit, a towel, your logbook, cash, frosty beverage money (yes…you will owe) and be ready to learn a little something and have a good time.
We will be using a private pool, so please watch your language and at least pretend to be civilized. We will leave the place cleaner than we found it.
In order to get a "B" Skydiving License (not to be confused with
category B in the ISP training program), you need to go through water training.
The idea is to practice getting out of your gear in case you have an emergency
water landing. This is not required to get an "A" License, but if
you intend to go very far in the sport, it is a good idea to take this
opportunity. The biggest motivation for most skydivers to get a "B"
license is that it is required for night jumps.
Check back for other planned live water training times and places.
Please be punctual for the
pre-training lecture -- if you do not attend ALL of the lecture, you may not
participate in the event! I strongly suggest that ALL students and A-license
holders that are seriously into the sport look at participating in this event --
it doesn't happen very often!
What: Water training
Why? B-license requirement and important stuff you should know! Like in
case you want to do a NIGHT
When: To be announced, but if you are interested, email
Ned with "WATER TRAINING" in the subject line.
What to bring: towel, extra change of clothing old tennis shoes (or old shoes you don't mind getting wet), log book to verify event. Optional
