If you’re a current skydiving student or you’re looking to start learning to skydive this summer, this parachute packing class is for you! On Saturday, May 23rd from 11AM-2PM WNYSkydiving is holding a FREE parachute packing course. This will be the only free course of the season. Already know how to pack, but looking for some extra practice before the season gets started? Come on out and play!
WHAT IS IT:
This parachute packing course will be a three-hour event. Experienced skydivers, senior parachute riggers, and skydiving coaches and instructors from WNYSkydiving will introduce participants to the different types of parachute systems used by licensed skydivers, student skydivers, and tandem skydiving students. Participants will see packing demonstrations and have the opportunity to start learning to pack on their own.
WHEN IS IT:
Saturday, May 23rd at 11:00am until 2:00pm. Out of respect for all participants and to ensure an on-time start, all participants are asked to arrive no later than 10:45am.
WHO MAY PARTICIPATE:
Individuals who have a desire to learn more about skydiving or become a licensed skydiver should take advantage of this class. A large portion of learning to skydive is familiarization with skydiving equipment. There is no better way to become familiar with your gear than by hands-on packing! All participants must be at least 18 years of age and be in reasonably good athletic condition.
You DO NOT need any prior skydiving experience in order to participate in this course. In order to better prepare for this course, WNY Skydiving will be providing some video and other resources for participants to familiarize themselves with prior to arrival at the course. Materials will be sent to all participants on March 1st.
Due to limited availability, please only sign up if you absolutely plan to attend as not to deny someone the opportunity. If you need to cancel, please do so 7 days in advance. This allows WNYSkydiving to accommodate those on the wait list.
