Detailed Licences requirements / Comparison ? Can't Post

Hey

For a project I'm comparing the Different licences USPA (ABCD) with the Swiss Skydive Licence.

My question now is : Where can i look up the different requieres for the USPA (ABCD) licences ? Or does anybody now advantages and disadvantages of the USPA system ?

Thank you in advance Wink

Advantage of the USPA system over other systems that I've been exposed to, is that it has more freedom allowing you to progress based on commonsense and judgment.

the Swiss license has the sams advantage and disadvantage. It has more freedom and allows you to progress based on commonsense and judgement.

Basically you pass your license somewhere between 500 and 100 jumps. Then you are free to do whatever, based on... common sense and judgement Cool
