2-Way VFS Advanced


Prior to starting to learn the Advanced Dive Pool, you will need to be sure that you can confidently fly each individual skill pertaining to the dive pool. As a proficient static flyer that is comfortable flying with a partner and completing routines from the intermediate dive pool, you can now begin learning the more technical formations and picking a sequence from the 2-way VFS Advanced dive pool. 

The entire pool offers an extensive variety of sequences which will challenge your flight ability as no two sequences will be the same, so the variety will rapidly increase your skill level and we encourage you to compete as soon as possible to test your skills!

The 2016 edition of the 2 way VFS rules was updated to assign letters to random formations and numbers to block sequences, similar to what is done in other Formation Skydiving events. This is different from the previous 2 way VFS rules wherein every formation was assigned a number.

Please see the complete Dive Pool for Rookie/Intermediate/Advanced/Open described below with new and former names. Also, note that the video above displays the previous names and an updated video is currently in the works.

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.
