1. Wingsuit Coaching with Jhonathan Florez – Flight 05

    After accomplishing most of our goals for the day, and figuring out what I have to work on for the near-term future, we finished up the day of coaching with a flock, dock, and chase jump. Jhonny was out the door first, and boy did we have fun.

    What a great day! Thank you Jhonny and everyone else that contributed to the fun last weekend at Skydance.

  2. Wingsuit Coaching with Jhonathan Florez – Flight 03

    Jump 02 (not posted) involved some learning. I didn't fly an awesome jump profile, but had fun.

    Here on my third jump with Jhonny, I'm finally starting to get the hang of it! I'm getting my forward speed up and feeling some of that glide.

    Huge thanks to Jhonny for coming out and coaching me!

  3. Wingsuit Coaching with Jhonathan Florez – Flight 04

    To quote Jhonny: "Look at me mom!" and "You're flying like a motherf@#%&r."

    Oh my god. It felt so good to get my glide dialed in! The biggest goal on this jump was feeling the balance between the front wing and the rear wing. All of the adjustments that are made should be to both surfaces, to maximize stability, and prevent too much oscillation.

    Really having fun here. And Jhonny loaded me up with homework for the next month.

    (1) Keep flying and commit best practices / body position to muscle memory.
    (2) Use the same techniques to dial in my backfly.

    I'm picking up a Flysight GPS to help the learning process, and hopefully in a month or so we'll sync back up for some more coaching.

    Thanks again Jhonny! :-)

  4. Wingsuit Coaching with Jhonathan Florez – Flight 01

    Jhonny was kind enough to coach me in my wingsuit last Saturday at Skydance. This is the first flight, where we establish my baseline, and note where my jump routine and flying techniques could use improvement.

    It was really awesome to go from watching this baseline jump, through the progression of 5 jumps we did together. I felt like I really improved, and the videos show me going from a slow suit plowing through the air, to flying the suit much closer to it's max glide.

    Huge thanks to Jhonny for the excellent coaching! You're so much fun to fly with brother. :)

  5. Flying wingsuits with Tom Grana at Skydance Skydiving
    15 February 2015

    What a flight! We exited at 18k' and played around for the first ~half of the jump. Then we laid on the speed and carved around before heading back to the dropzone. I got in some of the most solid backflying I've managed yet.

    Thanks to Tom for the fun time flying together and awesome video.
