Due the current situation concerning the Corona Virus and closed borders and travail restrictions we had to cancel the event at the DZ. However since we have the opinion, that the information is important we decided to do an online event.

It is the first time for us, but we try to present the required information to you, but we need to change the schedule and will have a little less possibilities for personal talks. But the format create a chance for more people to attand since travailing is not required. Obviously the intended practical training harness and other sessions are not possible. In the future the event in person at the DZ makes more sense and will be the intention for the following years.


Intention of the Safety Day

The Safety Day gives all skydiver an opportunity for continuing education and to refresh the emergency procedures. Since most skydivers have a longer interruption in the wintertime, it is a good idea to refresh the emergency procedures before jumping out of an airplane again.

During the Safety Day, there is the possibility for USPA Instructors (SL, AFF, IAD, Tandem) complete renewal requirements like the instructor seminar or tandem emergency procedures Review and let them be confirmed by an USPA S&TA. (applicable only for items can be confirmed online due to change in event format)

The workshops will be held in English language. Other languages can not be accommodated in this format.
