B license criteria

Recommended Posts


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?

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

B License

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.
