Learning to Fly

Saturday, January 2, 2016

As in all new things, the first taste of body flight can be challenging. To be suspended in a column of air puts individuals in a new space of existence where gravity no longer prevails! This new sensation requires new learning to figure out how to fly with control. The more time one spends in the wind tunnel the more comfortable individuals become. Like learning to ride a bike, the more you practice, the better you become until you’re able to ride without even thinking about it. This is the same for indoor skydiving and is why young children take to it so naturally.

This new sensation requires new learning to figure out how to fly with control. The more time one spends in the wind tunnel the more comfortable individuals become. Like learning to ride a bike, the more you practice, the better you’re able to ride without even thinking about it. It comes naturally. This is the same for indoor skydiving and is why young children take to it so naturally. Unlike many adults, who fight to gain control with no reference point, kids often relax and go with the flow giving them a greater advantage to shoot up the learning curve!

 

I was also shocked to see children, barely old enough to go to school, doing great in the wind tunnel! When the instructors take a minute to show off, you’ll be amazed.
