Coping with Competition
Using competition butterflies to make your performance better, not worse...
Prior to learning how to turn while Sit Flying, you will need to be able to comfortably control a neutral Sit Fly position, and fly this position at a wind speed suitable for sustained flight. You will also need to be able to fly forward and backward comfortably while Sit Flying.
The main objective for this skill is to be able to safely and successfully control both left and right turns while maintaining a an upright, Sit Flying orientation. You will begin by learning 90º turns and understanding how to start and stop the turns with control, then advancing to full 360º turns.
