Spaceland Lite Tunnel Camp June 6-9, 2013 iFly Austin Tunnel Camp

Fly in the tunnel with Spaceland Lite!

Join Spaceland Lite for a 3-day, 4-Way Tunnel Camp at the brand new, state-of-the-art 14′ wind tunnel at iFly Austin on June 7-9, 2013!

Spaceland Lite did all of its 4-way tunnel training in this size tunnel in preparation for winning the gold medals in the Advanced Class at the 2011 USPA Nationals. This is one of the few wind tunnels in the world that is large enough to train all of the 4-way blocks and randoms in the IPC/USPA dive pool. iFly Austin is the most recently constructed tunnel by SkyVenture and is their flagship facility featuring recirculating air flow, air conditioning, high-definition video and is the only wind tunnel in Texas.

Camp Plan: The goal for this camp is for each person to have the opportunity to work on improving their individual flying skills and then be able to directly apply what they have learned to 4-way formation flying. We will accomplish this by mixing some skill and individual drills (fall rate, grips, movement, turns, etc.) with 2 on 2 flying. Most of the camp will be structured in a 2 on 2 format, where two flyers will be in the tunnel with two Spaceland Lite coaches. In this format, each flyer will have a Spaceland Lite coach as their mirror and piece partner, so they will always have a positive reference for both positioning and the feel of their piece moves. This proven format significantly accelerates the learning curve for everyone involved. Our unique Spaceland Lite training syllabus encompasses multiple curricula for different levels of skill and experience of the participants allowing us to accommodate the whole range from new jumpers to very experienced 4-way team members. Each participant will fly for over 1.5 hours in the tunnel.
