B license criteria Can't Post

I've been hearing this rumor the B license jump requirement is going up to 100 January 1st, but the local DZ's S&TA says he has not heard anything like that. True or False?

Edit: Are the B license requirements changing the first of the year, and if so what is changing? Smile

How would I know what the S&TA has heard? Laugh

The only thing I know is changing on January first applies to the A license. The A Licence Proficiency Card, completed, signed, and stamped, is now only good for 60 days as a temporary license. If the skydiver applies for their B license during that 60 day period, the temporary license can be used as proof of an A license. Beyond that 60 days, the A License Proficiency Card/Application has to be sent to USPA for processing and assignment of a number.

Hey Hank the only one who has heard that rumor is Seth (and people who have heard it from him). No one else can find any reference to a change coming. I wouldn't worry too much about it at this point.

Thank you. Until I hear back from USPA I'm going to assume it's just a rumor. Who? ;) I heard it from several jumpers.

Edit: "The 50 Jump Requirement will not change. There are no planned changes at this time." -USPA
