Sharon has years of experience teaching and skydiving and it shows in the way that she presents information in an easy to understand manner. She is particularly adept at teaching online.
The goal of this workshop is to give participants the tools to make informed decisions when leading and participating in any type of movement jumps. In addition, this workshop will provide a platform for experienced angle flyers to share thoughts, answer questions and improve their overall skydiving awareness.
Sharon's previous online class was rated at 5/5 after 18 reviews. Whoa.
Sharon Har-Noy Pilcher is a world famous angle flyer and the driving force behind Modern Skydiving Concepts.
The course will include class theory about the responsibilities of the leader, planning a flight path, briefing and debriefing a group, and case studies of safety incidents.
This is an online version of our program. Obviously we won't be able to do the jumps that the on-site program offers. But we will incorporate extra drills, exercises and videos to simulate a variety of situations.
The workshop will be done over Zoom (you will need to have the software installed and ready before we start).

"For the past 10 years, Sharon has been at the forefront of angle flying development. Sharon's work to document the currently accepted, safest method to both execute and teach these jumps, has undoubtedly pushed our sport forward. Sharon has now gone beyond the camp to camp coach status, applying her years of experience in both skydiving and teaching to now help instructors to become better instructors. The joy about learning with Sharon is that not only is she an amazing flyer but is educated as a teacher and communicator. Her technical knowledge and understanding of our discipline coupled with an ability to translate basic principles of flight into our everyday skydiving is a breath of fresh air. Lessons are structured and derived from scientific principles and data. Gone are the days of "just feel it, man". If you would like to gain a deeper understanding of how you fly and become a better, safer flyer I would highly recommend checking this out."
Class size will be capped at 8. Minimum 6 required.
Payments due for tunnel bookings due 73hrs before flying. I have to pay the tunnel 72hrs in advance. Private coaching is one week. If you book onto an event and can no longer make it, I will do my best to find someone to take your place. Or find someone yourself and make it happen. Just let me know. BAD WEATHER POLICY - No refunds if I have travelled to the DZ. - 25% refund if I have not travelled. - 50% refund with >7days notice. E&OE. Registration fees are your deposits. Non-refundable but can be swapped if you/we find someone to take your place. By coming on trips you are confirming that with appropriate training and encouragement you will be able to safely fly with the intended group. We will do our very best to help you. However, if you're unable to fly in the intended group safely; your approach is uncontrolled, your tracking is inefficient or your canopy control is reckless, or maybe you're just having a bad day, at some point you will be asked to stand down from the group. Everything is reported as I've been told. Be aware though that planes can break. Fuel prices can go up. Weather can be shite. Balloons can be taken out by a bird with a sharp beak. DZOs can offer to pay for a 3rd plane to carry one skydiver to altitude solely to get outside video or they can change their minds. Volcanoes, earthquakes, locust swarms, pandemics all happen. Brian is not responsible. Blah blah blah. :-)
I will treat your data as if it is my own and keep it safe as best I can. I don't collect or store unnecessary data although some registrations forms are in-depth to ensure that I can provide the strongest possible experience for you.
