In August 2010, USPA sent out an advisory to all of its members with working e-mail addresses on file. The topic was the concern over recent skydiving fatalities, the great majority of which were attributed to a lack of understanding of canopy behavior and overall canopy piloting.
Here is a list of all resources USPA has gathered related to the advisory, which we feel members will benefit from reading. Safety is of the utmost importance to us, and we feel compelled to take action when trends such as this arise. Please, take the time to read, download and share all the materials here.
