Essential Info: The Flight-1 Canopy Series
What is it?
In 2012, Flight-1 launched a new series in the Flight-1 Training Program - the Flight-1 Canopy Series. It is a curriculum of continuing education in Canopy Control and Instruction. This curriculum provides a clear comprehensive progression for the skydiver of any experience level to learn and improve their canopy handling skills.
Who developed it?
Powered by the PD Factory Team, the curriculum has been developed from years of teaching canopy flight to thousands of skydivers. The authors are the most accomplished canopy pilots and canopy control instructors in the sport, and have extensive experience on the complete size and range of canopies being flown from student to expert.
Will it make me a better skydiver?
Yes. The curriculum is relevant to everyone whatever your current canopy handling skills are. Whether you are a newly licensed skydiver or a regular fun jumper, whether you are looking to improve your landing accuracy and technique or taking your first steps into more advanced canopy piloting, the Flight-1 Canopy Series will give you the chance to progress through a structured program to achieve your specific goals.
What happens after I complete a course?
The Series has multiple courses to continually develop your skills. It comes with a Certification Program to track your progress through the curriculum, with certification being given on successful completion of each module. Flight-1 will help you decide your future goals within the Series, enabling you to work towards your Flight-1 Sport Canopy Pilot Certifications with a step by step process.
