What is Freefly?

Freefly is a challenging Skydiving discipline and can be defined as the art of human 3D flight.

After building a solid belly-to-earth flight, you can start to learn to fly in other orientations.  

The learning process usually starts in a back-to-earth orientation (Back-fly) moving to a vertical sit or stand position (Head-up) and then upside down (Head-down).

 

As your skills improve, you will realize that you can fly all angles and positions between head-up and head-down.

Freefly Training

The freefly training is divided into Safety Knowledge, Basic and Advanced Freefall Skills.

The basic freefall skills are the same regardless of the position you are learning. They are the foundations to enable you to jump safely with other skydivers.

After achieving the basics, you can start to learn advanced maneuvers or move to the next position.

The training fulfills all the requirements for "BS" Skydivers to earn the FF1, FF2 stickers. 

FF1 = Head-up 

FF2 = Head-down
