You will need a current (no older than 24 months) version of the IRM for the course.

The course starts at 8am with verification of requirements. Bring your USPA Membership card and logbook for verification.
During the pre-course we will make practice jumps geared to prepare you for evaluation skydives. We will go over everything from exits and basic slot flying to spin stops and roll overs. If you want to show up prepared for an AFF course this is one of the best tools you can use.
Course fees do not include slots, travel and lodging expenses, USPA fees, or any DZ fees.
