Brad Thomas former graduate of the FFU joined us for some more fun jumping.
Here he is just after exit . Curling up in a ball and hurling yourself out the door is something you will become happy with sooner than you might realise on an AFF course, For Brad this is a tried and tested exit technique since his AFF level seven.
Many people notice the wind shaping peoples cheeks in freefall. Any experienced skydiver will tell you that whilst not always flattering its actually a sign of complete relaxation . The first time your AFF instructor tells you to relax you will probably think he or she is completely barkers ,,, but it wont be too long before you see what we mean .. in the words of the good doctor ” be like water my friend ” .
Marian Von Mitschke-Collande originally from Germany but now living in London returmed for another skydiving session with us .
As a beginner He trained a year ago on one of our AFF courses then attended our formation skydiving course and then went onto freeflying which he is practicing here with his coach ( who is flying head down ).
Mike Shephard another former AFF graduate came back to work on his formation skydivign skills , as you can see he has got the hang nicely of the ” Mantis ” position , the more advanced body positon that allows great results when flying with others,
Darren Baller joined us for an AFF course which he completed in 2 days.
Here he is performing his first solo exit , which looks ” perfect ” . A Base exit is where you leave the plane facing the slip stream . The slipstream or ” relative wind ” is coming from in front of him as thats the way the plane is flying. As he starts to accelerate towards ” terminal velocity ” he will begin to change in orientation and start to face the planet as when you start to accelerate thats where the wind will come from.
