Parachutist magazine is a standard benefit of membership. It is mailed through the US Postal Service in a class called Publisher’s Periodical for domestic members. The magazine comes unwrapped, protected only by its cover. With upgraded magazine delivery for domestic members, the magazine is sent first class mail and arrives in an envelope. First-class is not necessarily faster than Publisher’s Periodical, but the delivery time should be more consistent each month. The magazine should arrive in better condition. For international members, the magazine is mailed through the US Postal Service in a class called surface delivery. With upgraded magazine delivery for international members, the magazine is sent Airmail and arrives in a clear protective wrap. Airmail can be considerably faster than surface and the delivery time should be more consistent each month. The magazine should arrive in better condition.
Third-party liability insurance comes with membership through the Standard Benefits Program. Members are eligible to purchase other types of insurance through the Optional Benefits Program and/or the Affinity Benefit Program. Insurance types vary and subject to change. You will find the most current list of insurance programs in the benefits section on this site.
