I support a standardized wingsuit instructor rating. I spent hundreds of hours reading emails, reading questionnaires, and talking on the phone. Upwards of 80% of USPA members support this initiative. I feel this will legitimize wingsuiting within our sport and allow it to thrive in a safe and responsible fashion.
Where does this number come from? I don't remember seeing a survey, nor does anyone who I have asked.
What was the question asked?
The survey was sent to the 'players' in the WS community, not all USPA members. I don't recall at the moment how many people that was, but it was in the 100-200 range.
A non-binding referendum question on this year's ballot asks USPA members to state their preference about whether USPA should adopt a WSI program.
To my knowledge, no one is against the material (written by DSE) but there are people that do not want USPA to implement the program.
