USPA’s board of directors is holding its next meeting January 29-31 in Cincinnati, Ohio. We are excited to announce that we will broadcast it webinar-style via Zoom, as we did for our summer board meeting. Any member who is interested in attending should use the link below to pre-register. The site will ask you to log in to your USPA account for confirmation. Upon registration, you will receive two personalized links—one for each of two “rooms”—via email. This will allow you to attend any open meeting. Each registration (limited to one per member) and link allow one entry into the meeting. Those who are not USPA members may request an invitation through the form on the website.
If you would like to see how the USPA Board works for you, now is your chance to tune in from the comfort of home! Visit uspa.org/BOD/lobby to view the schedule of committee meetings, view agendas and register to attend.

On October 23, Advanced Aerospace Designs issued reminders of approaching deadlines for compliance with its last two service bulletins.
PIA released Service Bulletin PSB-10092020 affecting after-market tandem main risers constructed with obsolete RW2 rings. All sport tandem main risers produced with RW2 rings, or equivalent sized rings, are affected regardless of the hardware manufacturer, the date of manufacture, the material type or the forging process used. This PSB does not affect "solo" main risers that use RW2 rings. Compliance is MANDATORY – REPLACE BEFORE THE NEXT JUMP.
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Uninsured United Parachute Technologies, LLC (UPT) parachutes. This AD results from reserve pin covers (RPCs) catching on the parachute container flaps and preventing the reserve parachute from deploying. This AD requires modifying the RPC before the next parachute jump and replacing the RPC at the next reserve parachute packing. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
It’s no secret that more and more people are turning to giving gifts of experiences instead of material things.
