Skydiving is an amazing sport unlike any other. It is visually captivating, as the vast space in freefall allows the camera to fly around its subject(s) at any speed in three-dimensional space. AXIS Flight School has access to some of the most talented and skilled skydivers in the industry, who jump professionally and compete at the world championship level. This means that AXIS can provide your production team jumpers of the highest caliber that can perform under pressure.

Skydiving is a highly specialized field that is not to be underestimated. Unlike stuntmen who also skydive, skydivers at AXIS are able to provide your production with a vast range in knowledge, experience, and skill. We are located on the world’s largest skydiving resort, where you can enjoy jumpable weather all year round.

Our highly specialized helmets are designed to accommodate cameras of varying shapes and sizes. We have vast experience filming skydivers, wind tunnel flyers, as well as various kinds of falling object.

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.
