All of the parachutes are maintained to high standards. Each parachute system has a primary parachute and a backup reserve parachute. The FAA requires that reserve parachutes get inspected every 180 days. Our parachutes are inspected and maintained meticulously by a FAA Master Parachute rigger at Seamless Rigging. Parachute packers are also trained to look for any issues while packing. All of our team members are professionals.
Professionalism Across The Team
There are different levels of being a professional skydiving instructor. A skydiver can start working on their Coach rating once they have 100 jumps. The Skydive Tandem Rating requires 500 jumps. Our most experienced instructors have multiple ratings and multiple thousands of jumps. While you are here it will be easy to see that we have a passion for teaching. Skydivers can also take courses in advanced parachute flight, freefall skills, etc. Each year all skydivers also attend a Safety Day event. In addition, our instructors attend a recurrent training seminar conducted by a USPA Examiner to ensure skills are maintained. With excellent equipment and a professional staff we maintain an excellent safety record.
Focused on Skydiving Safety
Our excellent safety record shows that safety is our Number One priority. The United States Parachute Association has been recognized by the Federal Aviation Administration to oversee skydiving. Flight Providers is a member of the United States Parachute Association. Overall the sport of skydiving continues to improve its safety record. Tandem skydiving has an even better safety record, with one student fatality per 500,000 tandem jumps over the past decade. Over the years parachute technology has advanced greatly. Parachute systems are now equipped with an Automatic Activation Device (AAD) that will automatically deploy the reserve parachute if needed. This device alone has significantly reduced the risk of skydiving. Advances in parachute canopy technology have also resulted in softer landings. The risk of skydiving can not be eliminated completely. Significant steps have been taken to reduce the risk.
