The best way to build confidence is to acquire knowledge.
Building confidence for canopy flight requires knowledge and practice.
The best education is a solid foundation of reading the environment, proper positioning in your harness and knowledge of how and why your canopy works and reacts to inputs.
Simple information as well as advanced skills like managing long spots, no wind landings, use of front and rear risers and navigating a predictable and consistent landing pattern are all areas addressed during our canopy skills course.
Most of your training jumps will start at 5,000 feet, where you will deploy immediately so you can completely focus on flying your canopy.
An Axis coach will watch your entire canopy flight and video your approach and landing. There will be a video debrief and ground training session between each jump.
For more advanced students,who have already acquired the above knowledge, we provide more one on one opportunities such as High Altitude Hop and Pops.
During these jumps you will be accompanied by a coach to giving you a fixed object in the sky to fly relative to.
This will allow you to witness how your canopy reacts to certain inputs.
