About the event

The Education Clinics Committee (ECC) invites all current USHPA & UHGPGA members to this *DISCOUNTED* Ground-Handling Clinic!

Never have another embarrassing or sketchy launch again. Show up confident that your new kiting skills will make your momma proud.

Let's upset recent accident trends by learning to maintain wing control at all times, in all conditions, utilizing special techniques to minimize slop in our set-up, launch, and deflation.

Our illustrious instructor and local shredder, Brian Petersen has spent the last decade developing a multi-faceted curriculum of unique ground-handling techniques and a prototyped flight simulator, all of which are specifically designed to take you from fumbling flailer to canopy ninja.

Just like simulated in flight (SIV) training, this is a tool to boost safety and competence. The difference is that while relatively few flights require SIV training, EVERY flight requires ground handling.

*The insurance for this event is funded by the UHGPGA Education Budget.

Thank you to our dues-paying members for making this possible!

Thank you to, Brian for discounting your lessons!

And thank you to ECC member (and kiting boss) Andrew Ross for organizing!
