AXIS tunnel coaches are more expensive than my local tunnel instructor. Why is that, and what is the difference?

The fact is: Not all coaching is the same. The best analogy is the difference between a High School football coach and an NFL football coach. Both are involved in teaching athletes about the game, but at different levels. Naturally the less experienced coach will be cheaper and easier to come by.

However, the main difference in our sport is that you do not have to qualify to get the NFL level coaching experience. And in our opinion, working with coaches who are highly accomplished in their fields is an investment worth making.

Body Flight Theory—Part 1:
A Skydiving Coordinate System

By Niklas Daniel. Photos and illustrations by Niklas Daniel.

In order to fully exploit our body’s maneuvering potential in the air, we have to understand what is aerodynamically and physically possible and which underlying principles apply. This paper will eventually cover theory and application for all human flight disciplines, whether for training purposes or general inquiries.

The goal of part 1 of this paper is to establish a more elegant and convenient way to visualize body-flight movement with the purpose of creating order by introducing AXIS systems. You will be introduced to aerodynamic fundamentals and principles of a person in freefall – be it skydiving, base jumping, or flying in a vertical wind tunnel.
