Basic Canopy Piloting Skills - If you've never taken a dedicated canopy course, this is the one for you! - If it has been a season since you have done a canopy course, this course is also for you.
Greg's unique teaching style is specifically designed at focusing on each individual with the understanding that everyone learns differently. His proven techniques and canopy drills allow jumpers to completely understand exactly how their parachutes perform in every condition possible.
The course is also designed to educate jumpers on safe canopy flight and teach them techniques that will give them the most valuable tool of all....CONFIDENCE! Confidence in their gear, in themselves and their abilities to fly their canopies safely. The intent is to make jumpers smarter and safer canopy pilots. No matter what drills are being conducted, the desired end result is having the jumpers land exactly where they want as softly as possible. - This course meets the requirements of USPA's Canopy Piloting Proficiency Card, necessary for a B License.
Greg Windmiller's Canopy Courses are very versatile, and with the experience levels and desired goals of each participant taken into consideration, There is no minimum and no maximum jumps the participants can do in a day. Whether you want to do 1 jump or 10 jumps in a day is up to you. These are no cookie cutter courses. You will be doing jumps and drills based off of your abilities, your progress and your desired goals. Each jump you do will be videoed and meticulously debriefed.
* It is highly recommended that participants hire a packer to minimize distraction and maximize learning.
