High Speed Control


As you progress from flying all of the Back Fly Level 2 skills to beginning the IBA Static Progression path, you will first need to demonstrate control of all back flying and walking skills at higher wind speeds. This speed increase comparable to the speeds you will learn to sit fly will change how you fly each of the required skills to maintain control. Learning vertical orientations will require flyers be very comfortable bailing to a safe flight position that is controllable at higher wind speeds.

The IBA distinguishes between the sport of indoor skydiving (engaged in by patrons with IBA accounts seeking approval of flight skills though the IBA’s Flight Progression System) and recreational flying (engaged in by entertainment customers who do not intend to pursue approval of skills). While indoor skydiving is safe for all ages, the inherent risk of the activity is necessarily greater for those engaging in the sport of indoor skydiving, particularly as they progress through more sophisticated maneuvers.
