Flight-1 101, 102 & 201 Canopy Courses at Skydive Shomrat
Multi-time national and world champion, Shannon Pilcher will be teaching Flight 101, 102, & 201 canopy courses at Skydive Shomrat on the 31st of May through the 2nd of June 2018.
Flight 101 is a foundation course and is intended for beginner to intermediate canopy pilots. It covers all aspects of canopy flight, from opening to landing, dealing specifically with creating soft, consistent and accurate landings. Furthermore, you’ll learn correct flare technique, how to debrief personal performance, create a flight plan and stall, and stall recovery techniques to start to understand the full performance range of the canopy.
Flight 102 builds and expands on lessons from Flight 101. In this second foundation course, you’ll learn the complete range of the canopy and using the canopy to deal with different situations in air and in the environment. The course takes you through a series of in air exercises to explore the performance range of the canopy so that you can deal with emergency situations and difficult atmospheric conditions. You will be given more safety and survival tools, including controlled turns using different inputs, turn dynamics, dive recovery and the how to deal with a long spot.
Flight 201 is a course focused on “Developing Speed” and introduces the fundamental principles of high performance landings and speed building approaches using pitch. The course also includes essential slow approach skills and rear riser emergency landings. Basically, if you want to learn how to swoop, this course is for you!
