You are already a solo skydiver and want to continue your progress in the various disciplines of skydiving? The team of monitors and initiators of Cannes Parachute Club will advise and guide you in your development within the Skydiving Centre School of Le Cannet des Maures (CEPCA Le Luc). The goal is to ensure your progress toward the various certificates of proficiency (CoP).
The A Certificate
At the end of the AFF, for seven to eight jumps, you will be monitored to strengthen your mastery of free falling, flat stability and to make rotations through 360 ° left and right.
You will be observed from the ground and changes would be recommended for your canopy control until landing.
After this phase, the A certificate will be issued to you.
The B Certificate
Then you will learn to perform a variety of exercises that allow you to master figures like barrels, rear and front loops.
You will need to perform sequences of these three figures with rotations. You will have gained a good fluency in freefall.
Thirty jumps are necessary to achieve this ability to free fall on the three axis.
Then you will have to pass a written exam (MCQ)-related to basis of exit, weather and piloting your canopy to gain you B certificate.
B Certificate provides access to qualifications of key disciplines:
B1 : style and accuracy landing
B2 : formation skydiving
B3 : canopy relative work

The Autonomous Parachutist Certificate (BPA)
After 100 jumps you will get the BPA certificate.
It allows the carrying of a camera and the ability to introduce you to the wingsuit with an instructor of the club once you have reached 200 jumps.
BPA is necessary to access the C and D certificates.
