Through the Noise #263
Nancy Koreen // Director of Sport Promotion // United States Parachute Association
So you’re thinking about jumping out of a plane – for fun, of course. But how easy is it to pull that off, let alone pull the ripcord?
On this week’s episode, hosts Blake Althen and Ernesto Gluecksmann talk skydiving with guest Nancy Koreen, Director of Sport Promotion with the United States Parachute Association (USPA). With both a national and international presence, the USPA is a nonprofit organization committed to helping educate and facilitate all things skydiving. Nancy explains her role as a promotor of this classic thrillseeker’s sport, as well as the high importance of safety, training and accountability in skydiving.
Nancy also discusses skydiving as a progressive learning experience. With skills ranging from assisted beginner’s jumps, to freefalls, to group diving and acrobatic formations, there’s always room to learn and grow, even in the wide open sky – but always with a vital grasp on safety. So check out this episode of Through the Noise – no skydiver’s certification required!
