Enjoy 3-aircraft formation loads, work on skills, learn techniques with the world's top coaches and competitors…
Responding to demand, coaches Lesley Gale, Sïan Stokes & Rai Ahmed are running a big-way skills camp, at Skydive Hibaldstow, Friday 8 - Sunday 10 June, from two Turbine G92s and a Super Caravan…
The camp will include a mixture of experience levels, with everyone encouraged to try every type of slot from base, left and right trail aircraft.
It is suitable for relative beginners, provided they have the basic skills to get out of an aircraft and dock on a 10-way. It is also a great place for big-way veterans to enjoy the fun of formation loads, share their knowledge and get a buzz from the excitement of the newbies. If you’re on the European Women’s Record 2018 – or wannabe – this is the perfect place to gain valuable experience, or to come and strut your stuff in front of some of the selection team. Freeflyers with basic belly skills can also benefit from the camp, as big-way principles are the same whether head-up, head-down or flat.
Jumpers will be encouraged to try slots they have not done before, and given the tools and the brief they need.
Each jump will be videoed and extensively debriefed by world-renowned formation skydiving and record coaches – Lesley, Sïan and Rai. The camp is for both genders – that these great LOs are all female is purely coincidence
All jumps will be formation loads, weather permitting. If the weather doesn't play, single aircraft loads will be organised, or seminars if grounded. On the Friday night World Record videos will be shown, with an open 'question and answer' session.
