Course «Canopy Proficiency»
Through this course, you'll gain an in-depth understanding of your parachute and learn from our expert coaches how to maximize your safety and performance while flying your wing.
Unfortunately, most skydivers prioritize sign-offs over improving their individual canopy skills, leading to unprepared skydivers and unsafe flying, especially in challenging or unfamiliar conditions.
This course will instill the fundamental habits of safer, controlled canopy flying that you can build upon for years to come. We will focus on advanced canopy control, active flying, and awareness.
With safety in mind, our course focuses on giving you an advanced understanding of canopy flight as well as challenging you with important canopy control and input exercises.
Above all else, we seek to improve your confidence and skill as a canopy pilot.
The course includes
- Classroom instruction
- Canopy handling drills
- Precision slow-flight
- Stall control and recovery
- Proper handling and application of toggles and risers
- Individual analysis of all landings
- Practical, personal instruction between jumps
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.
