Course Description

Advanced Accuracy Course: accuracy landing

A jumper lands in a three dimensional target, constrained to 10x20 meters (2150sqft).

In order to meet the USPA C-License accuracy landing requirements, an applicant must have 25 landings that are within a pre-declared seven foot (≅ 2.1m) target. The AXIS Advanced Accuracy Course focuses primarily on pattern work by using ground reference maneuvers coupled with GPS analysis. Understanding how to adjust a landing pattern based on the environment and other jumpers, students begin to understand how their flying behavior and choices affect accuracy. This course provides its participants a detail oriented and analytical approach for self-improvement, and is a must have before venturing into the world of high performance landings.

Before each jump, you will receive theoretical information and practical drills to be performed under canopy. An AXIS coach will watch your entire canopy flight and take a video of your approach and landing. Each jump will be debriefed using the video and GPS information.

The course includes

An AXIS coach will watch your entire canopy flight on all jumps and record your approach and landing. There will be a video debrief and theoretical class work after each jump.
