Foundations: Sit to Sit Backflip

AXIS Flight School Instructor Niklas Daniel demonstrates the four stages of a backflip from head-up…

Sit to Sit Backflip

Starting in head-up neutral, find horizon…

  1. Raise arms and pull legs in
  2. Fly on back, then kick legs towards the horizon
  3. Once vertical, look back to find original heading
  4. Anticipate stopping with chest proud

Tip: Avoid throwing your head back at the start, look at the horizon in front.
