Courses for Coach Candidate will begin in February 2013 as well and be lead by a TonySuit appointed USPA Coach Examiner. We will make sure to keep you posted as the details of the program are unveiled.
Although most all wingsuiters agree that training and minimum skills are required before introducing a regular freefaller to the art of wingsuiting, much debate has been about the specifics. Who should issue these ratings? Who should train the trainers? Should USPA (or similar organizations) get involved?
The online forums on Dropzone.com have seen a great deal of discussions/arguments but at this stage the wingsuiting community is far from being of one mind about the solution.
TonySuits hopes that introducing their own standards for training jumpers in the use of their suits, they will contribute to increased safety and education amongst the new birds.
