Canopy Coaching

Building confidence for canopy flight requires knowledge and practice. The best education is a solid foundation of reading your environment, proper harness position and knowledge of how your canopy works and reacts to inputs. Not everyone wants to become a swooper, but every skydive ends with a canopy ride. Therefore every jumper should seek knowledge and build up confidence in this area.
