USPA Coach Course Dec. 10-12 at Atlanta Skydiving Center

More coaches are being grown at Atlanta Skydiving Center in the upcoming weeks! United States Parachute Association Coach Course Director Mark Kalupa is holding a rating course December 10th-12th at ASC.

We’ve had more than 10 C-Licenses skydivers express interest in becoming an USPA Coach. If you would like to participate in the USPA Coach Course, contact Mark directly at Specific information on the course can be found on the ASC Skydiver Forums.

Prizes for the top teams in the upcoming 2-way RW competition are getting better! This competition is open to A, B, and C licensed skydivers as well as USPA coaches who will be assisting the 2-way teams. The competition is set for Saturday, Dec. 11 at ASC.

Skyventure Orlando is giving away 30 minutes of free wind tunnel time with the purchase of 30 minutes. We also have two discount certificates from Bev Suits, Performance Designs and Aerodyne. The National Skydiving League is giving away two pairs of NSL gloves while Atlanta Skydiving Center is giving away lift tickets. and Chutingstar will have gear and rigging prizes as well. For details and rules, see the ASC Skydiver Forums.

The weather for the week wasn’t the greatest, but we still found a few days of beautiful blue skies! In particular, Friday and Sunday, were absolutely stunning days with tons of skydiving over ASC. The King Air and Porter were flying all week while the Twin Otter was on its way back from a Florida trip.

Paul Fritz is our newest A License skydiver as he completed his requirements Sunday with a checkout dive and then finished up the remaining ground requirements. Nice job Paul! And he’s already promised to bring beer out…woohoo! Nick Carter got closer to his A License on Sunday and should be finished with his remaining requirements by this weekend.

It was great to see USPA National Director Danny Page at Atlanta Skydiving Center on Sunday. Danny stopped by to make a few jumps and helped the staff out by making a couple of tandem/AFF instruction jumps at the end of the day. It is an election year for the United States Parachute Association and Danny is a local voice for your wishes, wants and concerns. Danny will be back for the ASC Christmas Party December 11th, so you can find out more about his plans for the USPA at that time.

Team One from Cleveland, Tennessee, was out jumping and filming all weekend.
The freefly team had a new piece of gear as Michael Blankinship’s Xaos21 canopy came in during the week. Michael swooped the ASC ground course all weekend.

Don’t forget that ASC is a drop-off location for Toys for Tots. Show your spirit of giving to the unfortunate and bring a new, unwrapped toy over the next couple of weeks. We are officially collecting the Toys for Tots organization through to December 12th.

See you all this week for $15 Lift Ticket Wednesday as well as a beautiful weekend of skydiving out of the Super Twin Otter over ASC!
