Wounded Veterans Coaching

Special Coaching for Wounded Veterans
in cooperation with Operation Enduring Warrior

Working in close cooperation with Operation Enduring Warrior, AXIS Flight School actively supports wounded veterans who want to enter the world of skydiving. Once a candidate is selected to receive support from OEW, AXIS develops a highly customized and specialized training plan for that student. This includes coordinating necessary equipment modifications directly with skydiving manufacturers, and developing customized SOPs based on the wounded vets personal injuries.

Some of the challenges that have been worked around include amputations, PTSD, severe burns, and paralysis. AXIS Flight School has assisted multiple OEW students in reaching their USPA A-License and beyond.

AXIS uses a variety of training methods including, but not limited to: wind tunnel training, training tandems, instructor assisted deployments (IAD), accelerated free-fall training (AFF), and a customized canopy coaching curriculum.

Our goal is for each student to become as independent as possible, while at the same time find a unique social group to become a part of.

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.
