Contents: Self-accountability. Situational awareness. Analyzing your environment and making educated decisions. Flying precise and predictable patterns. Learning proper flare technique. Improving accuracy. Learn to fly defensively (do not confuse with "passively"!).
Your training jumps will start at app. 5,000 feet AGL, where you will deploy immediately so you can completely focus on flying your canopy.
Each jump has a different focus:
Equipment, practice flares, and evaluation
Basic aerodynamics and effective flaring
Braked canopy flight
Rear riser applications and long spot navigation
Toggle stalls and stall recovery
An Axis coach will watch your entire canopy flight and take a video of your approach and landing. There will be a video debrief and theoretical class work with power point slides between each jump.
Same dates as Course CCD 1.1.

More Than Just a Sign-Off—Training for Water Landings
Training for intentional and unintentional water landings is an important part of a skydiver's learning progression and is required to receive the USPA B license. Unfortunately, most jumpers rarely give it much thought after their instructors sign them off for this skill, and few take the time to carefully consider the dangers involved.
Anyone who takes a quick look at the USPA Canopy Piloting Proficiency Card (the completion of which is required to receive a B license) will notice that most of the maneuvers are of the slowflight variety. The big question jumpers always ask is, "Why do I need to perform stalls? What practical application does it offer?" Learning more about slow flight and stalls not only prepares you to land your parachute better, but also teaches you just how versatile your wing can be.
