USPA AFF Standardization Meeting

Friday, 21.01.2011

Once more, the USPA invited all Instructors Examiners to come and join the AFF Standardization Meeting during Jan 18-19, 2011 at Sterling (VA), Washington DC.

The event was a great opportunity to discuss AFF student training issues and standards as well as interact with other I/E’s from all over the world. We also appreciated a detailled seminar by Brian Germain regarding safe canopy training and teaching.

We thank USPA for the organisation of this two day meeting and wish everybody involved a great start into the season 2011.

Are you looking at getting your AFF Instructor Rating any time soon? Come and prepare yourself properly with our AFF Pre-Course at Skydive Spain during March 22-24, 2011.

The AFF Preparation Course is designed to practice the skydiving portions of the AFF Certification Course and will be conducted by USPA I/E Marcus Laser and BPA Examiner John Horne. We will guide you through the air skills required to pass the AFF IRC. Many scenarios that you will encounter on the AFF IRC will be practiced, such as different exits, spin stops, turnover techniques and appropriate hand signals. Besides the practical part the course offers also lectures covering subjects such as format of courses, specimen lessons, briefings/debriefings etc.

There is no minimum or maximum jumps required, each participant sets his own goals according to his experience and the training needs. The course fee will be set according to the number of training days and number of participants and varies between 90€-150€ per day (plus jump tickets). The Pre-Course requires prior registration (registration form and deposit), no later than February 5th, 2011.
