  6. Post the details of your course on to increase the number of participants and thereby reduce the price of the course.
  7. The cost of the course is $195 per participant. This does not include altitude, food or accommodations. Minimum participation is 10 people. There is no maximum number, other than limitations on classroom space and lift capacity.
  8. The Airfare to get Brian to your dropzone is also covered by the participants, or by the dropzone. This usually amounts to about $2-300 extra. This can also be added to the cost of the course, and Brian can make the flight arrangements himself.

  10. We need a good classroom. Teaching canopy flight properly requires the following components:
    a. White Board (dry erase)
