Tip Tuesday: Landing Patterns
Heading to a new DZ? Here are a few tools from Flight-1's Justin Price to help you scope it out before you even get there...
Osprey Canopy Piloting Display Team
Flying out of the scenic Skydive Northwest located between Morecambe Bay and the Lake District, the Osprey display team have been flying together for years. Some of the team first competed together in RW in the early 80s.
With the advent of more advanced wings and CP competitions this bruising discipline gave rise to a different kind of display team where the visual spectacle of formation flying and the controlled swoop landing can be enjoyed.
With coaching from Curt and Jeannie Bartholomew and Brian Vacher, the pilots have competed in the UK CP nationals over the years, with team member Kieron Hayes being the only competitor to attend every nationals since the event started.
With a few relaxing beach jumps planned and some more exciting events in the pipeline together with awesome flying friends, it's a great team to be with.The wing of choice is the PD Valkyrie and Velocity – and thanks to Sun Path for the Javelin containers.
