A basic interactive, hands-on canopy course offered in group format
for anyone with a license and their own gear. If you're a little afraid of your landings, want to begin
exploring performance flight, or simply want to improve your current skills and
confidence, this is a great way to do it.
What Do You Learn? - We cover flight theory you can use--no boring
stuff. You'll learn better landing
techniques and how to tell what you did right or wrong to evaluate your own
landings. We teach you to manage
traffic, including ways to make a simple flight plan before you board.
You'll learn simple methods that will improve your accuracy right
away. Plus we offer performance
tips to help you get back from long spots and provide you with information to
help you understand and handle the dreaded low turn. We'll also evaluate your gear and discuss equipment choices
that make sense for you.
Each class starts with an evaluation jump to see where your skills
are to start with. Then we follow
with video debriefing, a short class and your assignment for the next jump. Each
time, you get down, pack, sit in on a brief lecture and go up for an evaluation
jump. The class includes five
videoed jumps, all tailored to your
Cost is $250,
which includes the coached jumps (hop-and-pops high
or low, at the coach's discretion), all
classroom discussions, and a course booklet. If you bring a tape, we'll copy your jump to it free.
We guarantee satisfaction or your money back (less jumps and
materials). But you won't need to
ask for that!
