A Tunnel Camp of FreeFly takes place on 4 or 5 days for a duration of 2:30 or 3h of flight.

With an experienced Coach (+ 150H coaching), a 3h pack allows 80% of the Flyers to finish their Camp in flight head up + an initiation head down from 2 to 10 ′.

For the less athletic: un pack de 2H30 sur 5 jours avec 30′ de vol par jour.

Pour les plus sportifs : le pack de 3H00 sur 5 jours avec 40′ de vol par jour à l’exception du 3ème jour (jour de fatigue) où vous ne volerez que 20′ l’après midi.

The packs of 2:30 or 3:00 are the most economical formulas. Fly by session 1h or 1h30 requires more time to progress And in fact, cost more.
Ideally, you will be 3 flyers to fly 10 ′ on 30 ′ sessions (in 5 sessions of 2 ′).

The flight steps proposed by AirWax FreeFly

First CAMP – 2:30 or 3h

  • Vol ventre – 1/Posture neutre – 2/Avancer, Reculer et tourner -3/Marche au filet
  • Vol dos – 1/Posture neutre – 2/Avancer, Reculer et tourner
  • Vol assis – 1/Posture neutre – 2/Décoller
  • Transitions – Sans ordre particulier : Dos à Assis “vent intermédiaire”, 2 Demi-loops “plat à dos ou dos à plat”, 2 demi-Tonneaux “plat à dos ou dos à plat”.
  • Vol assis – 1/Posture neutre – 2/Avancer, Reculer et tourner – 3/Transitions dos à Assis – 4/Loop avant
  • Initiation au vol dynamique débutant (jambes pliées): les 2 carves Ventres “Tête en Haut et tête en Bas”, les 2 carves Dos “Tête en Haut et tête en Bas”
  • Vol Tête en Bas”, Initiation. Décollage rapide, en simple ou double spotting selon les flyers et sensation sur la position Neutre

Second CAMP – 5h or 6h

  • 1-revalidation of previous achievements... 10 ′ to 20 ′ are required.
  • 2- Le “Front Lay Out”
  • 3-Alternation between
  • * HIGH SPEED : Vol tête en Haut Niveau 2 (“advanced”: Eagle, Carve, Grips, etc…) et le vol tête en Bas – décoller tout seul – Avancer, Reculer et tourner
  • * LOW SPEED: the 4 carves + transitions

Third CAMP – 7:30 or 9am

  • 1-revalidation of previous achievements... 10 ′ to 20 ′ are required.
  • 2-Alternation between
  • * High SPEED: Top level Flight 3 (Eagle + tricks, carve on one leg and introduction carve OutFace, etc...) and flight head down level 2 – fly alone with ease – the Transition head to head down from the back
  • * LOW SPEED: the 4 carves + transitions
  • 4- le “Back Lay Out”

Fourth CAMP – 10h or 12h

  • 1-revalidation of previous achievements... 10 ′ to 20 ′ are required.
  • 2-Alternation between
  • * High SPEED: Top Flight (the 2 carves, introduction of the head up Daffy position and on the knees) and flight head down level 3 – Fly alone – the transition head to head downwards from the front – then the other 2 transitions
  • 3/Eagle head up to head down Front way, then Back way.
  • * LOW SPEED: the 4 carves + transitions

Fifth CAMP – 12.30 or 15h

  • To choose... Alternately or in a specific Camp, but of course we recommend the alternation:
  • * High speed: Dynamic High speed: Complete flight with alternating carves and Eagles.
  • * LOW SPEED: The 4 carves with legs stretched or with more wind – Introduction of the fronts lay out and Back lay out in the dynamic flight.
    This progression on 5 CAMPS is the optimum configuration.

Only 1 in 10 people will be able to reach this progression in only 15h.

The full high Speed level is reached by 80% of the flyers in 25H.
(This is the level I.B. A static level 4 or T.I. O CLASS B FLYER – Static)

The full low Speed level is reached by 80% of the flyers in 40H.
(This is the level I.B. a dynamic level 3 and 4 or T.I. O CLASS a FLYER – dynamic)

The full PRO FLYER level is reached by 10% of the Flyers in 50H
(This is the level I.B. A DYNAMIC & Static PRO or T.I. O CLASS B FLYER – Static & DYNAMIC)

The Pro Flyer is able to demo a movement or a chain on all wind speeds.
This is why the skills control in Low speed (Horizontal flight) and High speed (Vertical flight) is only the beginning. It takes a lot of hours to get to know his 2 worlds.

“Ces observations on été faites sur les 81 camps, dont 350 flyers et 4 Coachs que nous avons formé depuis 2010”

You want to have good bases and a solid flight level quickly?

Make sure you have a good physical condition:

  • Being able to run at least 15 minutes
  • Being able to do at least 10 pumps
  • Being able to achieve at least 3 tractions
  • Being able to achieve at least 10 knees-bending

Latest tips, follow at least 4 Camps (minimum 10h):

  • Before you start flying to 2 or 3 people without a Coach.
  • Before going from 40 ′ of flight to 50 ′ per day!
  • Make sure you understand the head up posture before attacking the half-loops:P lat with back and back flat.

– Atteignez le niveau “vol Tête en bas” avant de travailler le Back Lay Out. L’expérimenter c’est bien, le travailler pour savoir le réaliser seul, c’est différent…
– Have a solid FreeFly flight in High Speed (the 4 transitions: Head up upside down from the back and from the front and upside down head up from the back and through the front + carve head up and carve head down) before following specific Dynamiqu flight CAMPS E

Today, there are a lot of coaches available, inform you beforehand: if you are parachutists and you want to progress in FreeFly, we recommend a coach who is also coach FreeFly in the sky, and ideally competitor in FreeFly.

The value of the benefit is also to be taken into account, by convention the provision of a wind tunnel Coach should not exceed:

  • 100 €/h when he has between 0h and 150H Coaching
  • 150 €/h when he has between 150H and 500H of Coaching
  • 200 €/h from 500H Coaching, or if it is also instructor 4 or Class B or high level competitor in wind tunnel.

What is a coach?

It is a Pro flyer Expert who has at least 50H of flight, which is IBA Flyer 4 or static and dynamic B and which has shown to a trainer that he controls all the static and dynamic flying postures. Thus, he can brief, debride and make demos of all types of flight to his students so that they can also pass their flight levels at IBA or Tunnel instructor. He is aware of his placement so as not to interfere with the instructor's interventions.

What is an instructor?

It is a person who has learned and mastered all the conditions of safety and rescue intervention of flight in wind tunnel. He is competent to ensure a flight or coaching session but depending on his level, he may not know how to fly and therefore not know how to coach.

There are a few more things to know:

  • Flying without a coach will not make you progress very quickly.
  • A coach is not necessarily an instructor and an instructor is not necessarily a coach!
  • If you are in the learning phase, preferably fly from 9am to 9pm. Learning to fly outside these hours is not very productive. We also advise you to fly 40 to 45 ′ a day only during your first 10 hours.
  • Flying with tight combinations before mastering each posture is much longer and difficult.
  • We recommend the full helmet and more specifically the G3 from Cookie.
  • Plan Light technical T-shirts long sleeves
  • Flat-soled shoes are more suitable because they hang less. and tightly tighten your shoelaces 🙂
  • Think about removing your jewelry and the Alti-sounds of your helmets
  • We really insist on good physical preparation (press, pumps, stroke). This will save you time!
  • For girls, plan one or more necks to store your hair, or plan a good scissors for knots...
  • Knee and elbow pads If you want more security
