Learn to fly relative to other canopy pilots. This is a must for any aspiring CRW dog or persons wanting to perform team landings.
Canopy flocking is a great way to learn more about your canopy and to become comfortable flying in close proximity to other jumpers. This is especially helpful during pattern navigation and creating vertical separation for safety. In this course you will learn all the necessary skills to fly relative to other canopy pilots, and to better anticipate their actions.
Your training jumps will start at app. 13,000 feet AGL, where you will deploy immediately so you can completely focus on flying your canopy. An AXIS coach will accompany you for the entire duration of your flight in order to serve as a reference and added instruction.
Each jump has a different focus:
Coach evaluation, introduction to reading GPS data (examine Google Earth overlay, with exact ground path, altitudes, and speeds)
Ground-reference maneuvers, discuss ground speed v airspeed
Canopy inputs effect on glide, pattern adjustments for wind conditions
Pattern altitude adjustments, pattern size and shape
Accuracy trick, imprinting (DZ specific), target fixation
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.
