Intro to Angle Flying Camp! @ Start Skydiving
May 6 @ 8:00 am – May 7 @ 7:00 pm

Intro to Angle Flying Camp!

            This intro to angle flying camp, hosted by Alex Hart, is a great way for jumpers to learn the basics of angle flying and improve their realm of freefall skills.  Jumpers who wish to begin angle flying MUST have a C-license and already be proficient at flat tracking: safe and controlled exit, effective break off separation, controlling decent speed, and heading control.  This camp will be limited to 10 people! So, register EARLY! Registration fee is $25.

This is a 2-day camp (Saturday & Sunday). We will spend the day Saturday discussing and practicing the fundamentals of engaging the desired angle and managing speed.  After Saturday is complete, jumpers will be assigned a group for Sunday.  Sunday, we will spend the day learning how to mix speed and heading changes. We will do a minimum of 5 jumps each day (the more the merrier!), practicing these fundamentals and determining each jumper’s skill level.

Please arrive at the DZ no later than 8am each day! This allows us enough time to discuss the fundamentals needed for the day and time to get in at least 5 skydives.

I look forward to working with all of you! Let’s go shred!
