instead of using live trees. The harnesses are full body, which are OSHA approved. We require helmets and at
no time are you allowed to turn upside down. All hardware used in the design of the course is custom made
for the challenge course industry, not what you can buy at your local hardware store. The course and all Flight
Captains must be certified yearly by ACCT and the Red Cross at the CPR/PR level, the international standard
for high ropes courses. (Association of Challenge Course Technology) www.acctinfo.org. The course and staff
are required to be re certified yearly by ACCT. [TOP]

Absolutely! Every Flight Captain must pass a strict 8 hour hands on class yearly on the proper use of the
equipment and demonstrate the skills needed to operate as a Flight Captain. This certification is required by
Kersey Valley, Inc. and is accredited by the ACCT. (Association of Challenge Course Technology) Every Flight
