Your A CoP started opening the doors to jumping with one other person who wasn’t your coach! But why stop there, obtaining you B CoP will present you with endless opportunities to do all sort of great things in the air, with all sorts of great people!

By now you know the drill, we can’t just hand you the B CoP and send you on your way. First we have to teach you all the skills, both freefall and canopy, and all the technical knowledge, that comes with being a B CoP jumper.

Once you have your ‘B’ you can:

Requirements

In order to earn your ‘B’ you’ll have to complete the following:

 

CSPA Resources

PIMS

“Parachutist Information Manuals” (PIMS) are your source for all the technical aspects to skydiving and will be a great aid no matter what level skydiver you are.

PIMS All of the PIMS are freely available here.

APPLICATION

Of course, to get your ‘B’ you’ll need to fill out the paper work.

Application Form: B CoP

The ‘B’ Application lists all of the requirements to earn your ‘B’. Also attached to the application is the test answer sheet for your written test.

Coaching

Earning your Solo proved you could perform the basic life-saving-jump-another-day-skills. Now we’re going to refine those skills and make you into a skygod (soon enough). The coaches around the dropzone are both qualified and excited to help you get there. Make sure to see the following coaches to help you with the ‘A’ skills.

C1

While the bulk of the new skills to be learned in advancing from your A to your B will be taught and evaluated by your C2’s, the C1’s can be great jump partners with which to practice your RW skills and bang off some of your required 15 2-ways!

C2

A C2 will perform three jumps with you to develop your Group RW skills for your ‘B’.
During all these jumps the Novice will be required to demonstrate control of relativity and approach speed during docks. Altitude awareness, clear ability to wave-off, and sufficient capability to create separation and pull at a safe altitude are all musts.

All of these jumps will build upon the skills you learned with your C2 in obtaining your ‘A’.

Each jump will be comprised of you diving out after the C2, delta diving to the C2, and proceeding to take controlled docks with the C2 between performing a variety of maneuvers such as center and knee turns. Altitude awareness, proper break-off and separation, and event recall will all be a key factors to success in your C2 jumps.
