A Licence question
I have a question about the A Licence process as I am getting some conflicting information. I have completed my A licence requirements and got the card fully signed off and stamped. I was then told that the card is now my A Licence and that I do not have to do anything further. On the other hand there still seem to be people getting A Licence numbers which presumably means I have got to register with the USPA. I was told the registration with the USPA to get a specific number has lapsed as a procedure and that it is only when I want my B Licence and beyond that I should sent in the card... Bit confused..help please... Best wishes, Tim
Are you a USPA member? If you are jumping at a USPA dropzone, you should have been made to join already. If you are a member, then you can get an A number if you wish (its kinda cool to have), but you don't have to get it if you don't want to.
The yellow proficiency card with signature and stamp is your "A" license. If you want to register your license with USPA you can send them a copy of the card and the license fee, and they will give you an official "A" license number. Registration of the license also protects you in case you loose the original proficiency card.
The details of the registration process are listed in the 2004 SIM on page 14, section "B"-Presenting a Completed License Application.
