Designed as a resource for first-time jumpers, the USPA Online Ground School will help you learn about skydiving while you relax in the comfort of your favorite chair! This is NOT a course that can be used as complete training for any of your skydives. But, by reviewing this information at your own pace and becoming familiar with the equipment and concepts you will need to understand before making your first jump, your ground school at the drop zone will go much smoother for you.
Jen Sharp worked tirelessly to develop this project, and Tony James created the terrific canopy flight animations. Finally, John “Wink” Winkler and his crew at Down To Earth Rigging put together a great DVD called “The First Jump Course DVD.” He was kind enough to provide USPA with the malfunction footage used for the Online Ground School and save us from having to make a ton of intentional cutaway jumps to create the necessary footage.
