I think it's 'right turn, stop on heading, left turn', is that right?

Off the top of my head, it's basically a style set:
360 turn right or left,
backloop,
360 turn opposite direction,
frontloop.
In a certain amount of time. OR you can do a 4-point 4-way which is usually much more entertaining!

For a USPA B lisence, you have to do a figure 8 (left turn, right turn) backloop, figure 8, back loop in 18 sec or less.

The Falcon (or 4 point 4-way) is for your C license or you can do the same style series in 15 sec or less

You know I applaud the USPA for updating the requirements for your A license, now why cant they do it for the other ones. I mean I never did a single style type thing until I wanted to get my C license.

For CSPA, its the International Series, which is 360 Left, 360 Right, back loop, 360 Right, 360 Left, Back loop, under X seconds (cant remember how long from the top of my head now), but 18s rings a bell....

used to be 14 for the C, right (man its been a while since I took the instructors and aoach courses....).

I must say that I think the way the CSPA re-did the licence req. is pretty good, by having people chouse a couple of skills out of a list of a few more (RW, FF, style, Sport Acc, Acc, .....)

But then again, my next licence will probably be the BPA D....
