What is a coach?
The Coach's mission is to transmit his knowledge and experience to you by helping you develop your skills and performance.
What is his experience and flight level? Find out!
You should know that there are Junior Coaches and Senior Coaches.
What's a Junior Coach?
It is an IBA Flyer Level 4 "Static & Dynamic", or Tunnel Instructor - Class B Flyer "Static & Dynamic". With 50 hours of flight time and the demonstration that he masters all static and dynamic flight postures, a Tunnel Trainer signs him his Pro Flyer/COACH level.
Thus, he can brief, debrief and give demos of all types of flights to his students so that they can in turn pass their flight levels at IBA or TI. He is aware of his position so as not to interfere with the instructor's interventions.
This Coach will have a first added value with 100H of flight, or by also being an Instructor Tunnel, Instructor, Initiator or Coach in Parachuting.
It will have an additional added value if it is a competitor in wind tunnel and/or skydiving according to your expectations.
What's a Senior Coach?
Finally, this Coach is considered Senior with 500H of Coaching. This means that he has organized between 30 and 40 Tunnel Camps and has, in fact, trained more than 100 students.
We hope that this information will help you understand the evolution of flight and guide your choices.
Don't forget to keep your goals! You will progress faster.
