VFS & FreeFly
Through added awareness of aerodynamics and body-mechanics, a freeflyer is capable of maneuvering through the air on the belly, as well as back, feet, and head.
When these four basic positions of flight are learned, and the transitions between them understood, a new dimensions of flight is unveiled that allows the flyer to explore a seemingly endless amount of possibilities.
We believe that it is crucial that one should not limit themselves in their practice of body-flight by adhering to labels such as “freeflying” or “formation flying”. Take an interest in all flight, and you will notice that they all compliment each other.
Vertical Formation Skydiving (VFS) refers to four jumpers building predetermined formations from the IPC dive pool, while using freefly body positions. This discipline combines the skill of freefly with the complex mental work of formation skydiving.
AXIS provides coaching for these disciplines in the wind-tunnel and sky.
