The Total Body Flight Training Program.|
To join the program, a 5 jump minimum commitment is necessary. Your first jump with the instructor will determine which level in the program you will be placed. This program has 8 levels. For more information and/or enrollment, contact Total Body Flight at Skydive City in Zephyrhills.
Level 1: Basic Sit Stand & Altitude Awareness. Remember the 3 90s. A common problem students have while sitting is not having the feet under the knees.
Level 2: Sit with Standups. In this level you become adjusted to a faster fallrate.
Level 3: Sit with forward/backward movement and 360 degree pirouettes. You learn to fly slow and smooth and to use the head switch technique.
Level 4: Combinations of Levels 1-3, burble interaction, docks, and rotations of axis. Your input plays a significant role in your training at this level.
Level 5: Head-down Tandem. The freeflying student is introduced to the orientation, air space, and sensation of the head-down flying stance. You'll maintain eye contact with your instructor who will communicate with you.
Level 6: Fallrate control in the head-down position. You'll follow the instructor and learn the importance of being aware of people above you before decelerating your fallrate.
Level 7: Forward/backward movement and 360 degree pirouettes in the head-down position. The legs only are used for performing pirouettes as using the arms and torso cause problems with proximity control. You'll learn to use subtle movements.
Level 8: Head-down hand docks, cartwheels, flips, burble interaction. For example, you may practice a drill during which you will shake right hands with your instructor, then your left, and so on with perhaps a pirouette or other transition in between each grip. Your input plays a significant role in your training at this level.
At this point, you graduate and will realize that your learning has just begun in this new exhilarating skydiving discipline.
