Team Training

Friday, January 1, 2016

Today, every unique body flight position is a category or discipline of skydiving. Each category has rules for competition that can be judged. To compete at the highest levels within each discipline requires training in the wind tunnel.

The luxury of indoor skydive training is it is more time efficient (no riding in the airplane to altitude, no need to pack parachutes). Teams are able to fly together for two minutes (this is the equivalent of two skydives. A skydive usually lasts for one minute). step out of the tunnel, review their technique with a coach and step back into the tunnel. This controlled environment increases the learning curve dramatically!

So. Much. Fun. Including my accidental "acrobatics" and giggles. My very patient instructors were AHmazing! Our campers from UNCW Engineering Expectations LOVED the experience! Thanks, guys!
