USPA Training Center
What Does It Mean To You?
SkyDance SkyDiving is the only Sacramento and Northern California official USPA-certified Training Center
…holding this designation years longer than any other California drop zone.
As of this writing, only 2 drop zones out of the 17 in California are designated “Training Centers.”
To be designated as a Training Center, “drop zones offer the training programs, equipment and instructors necessary for skydiving students to attain the USPA (United States Parachute Association) A-License.” (quoted from USPA’s Parachutist magazine DZ Directory)
Many (but not all) “drop zones” are Group Members of USPA.
SkyDance SkyDiving has, in fact, been a USPA Group Member drop zone longer than any other drop in California, with the exception of Skydive Elsinore.
Since 1987, SkyDance has “pledged to follow USPA Basic Safety Requirements for student and advanced skydivers and to offer first-jump courses taught by USPA-rated instructors.” (quote from USPA)
SkyDance SkyDiving and USPA: Mentoring
When one of our student skydivers graduates our USPA-certified AFF (Accelerated Free Fall) Program, they’re not forgotten; we mentor every jumper wishing to continue his or her progression – and most do!
Check out the following awesome video hosted by USPA, titled, “Beyond the First Jump.”
Skydiving can be a life-changing – if not life-enhancing – experience. It’s not for everybody, but every person who wants to learn how to do it safely will not find a better drop zone than SkyDance SkyDiving.
…There may be drop zones as friendly as SkyDance, but we feel that none could be friendlier. (Don’t take our word for it – just do a quick comparison of our Yelp! reviews to other Northern California drop zones
