Training Questions

How do I book one on one jumping with Christy?

Contact her! However, be aware that individual jumping is available but often not the best fit for skill improvement. The wind tunnel is a tremendously more time and cost efficient for most flyers. If you aren’t sure if that will fit your needs talk with Christy! She can help design something that best suits your ideal training.

Tunnel Questions

How do I book a tunnel session with Christy?

Contact her! Together we can establish a time frame, schedule, budget, and location that works for you. Weekends can get a busy, so booking earlier gives you more options.

How much tunnel time should I do in a session? In a day?

A single session will be 10-15 minutes long per flyer. Each rotation will be between 1.5-2 minutes long.

A flyer can do several sessions in a row. A fit flyer can do up to an hour in a day with moderate exertion. If you aren’t sure sample a session and start slower.

Fury Tunnel Lab

When will I be flying?

Your precise schedule may not be confirmed until a week or two in advance. Plan on being at the tunnel as early as 8:00am or as late as 9:00pm if you are doing 4way. HOWEVER if you have special restrictions, like a flight, I can usually accommodate.


How long will I be at the tunnel?


If you are flying the standard package, you will be doing two rotations. With prep and debrief time you will be at the tunnel about 4 hours. For other packages your time might be split, with a break in the day for bonus time and an evening session for 4ways.


Will I have time to jump?


Once the schedule is released you hypothetically could head to Perris or Elisnore for a jump or two. Both are about an hour away from Ontario. Just don’t tire yourself out too much!

How much time should I fly?

If you don’t have any tunnel experience, 20 minutes in a day is a good start. If you are confident in your physical abilities, you can comfortably add on that extra 30 over three days, or 40 minutes of tunnel. Remember the lab is three days though – you might not be excited for that bonus session on day 3.

If you are experienced, athletic, and fit you can fly up to an hour a day. However we focus a lot on careful and methodical practice, not just bulk with a Tunnel Lab. If you really want to squeeze in the maximum possible amount of flying, contact me to see if we can leave you exhausted.

Fresh Meet

Do I need to attend all the Fresh Meet days?

Not at all! You can attend any number of days with your full registration cost. The main event is Saturday, but we have great activities on the other days, too.

If you are attending on the weekend only, there is a cheaper ticket. Look for the special rate on the registration page.

Will I know my team beforehand?

If you sign up as a team, definitely.

If you do not sign up with a team, we usually introduce you to your group a few weeks out. 

However, we may need to delay some assignments or mix things around. It is challenging for us to match groups up by size, experience, and compatibility. We work hard to make it work!

Can I choose my teammates? Mentor?

Yes, and yes. You can choose your mentor as long as they are qualified and comfortable to jump with a GoPro. You can also pick your freshling friend.

Can I register if I don’t have my license yet?

Yes! We have a ‘tentative’ registration option. You can pre-register and get your t-shirt size ordered even if you don’t have a license yet. If you don’t get it in time, we will refund you. If you need help finishing your license, we will point you in the right direction!

What is your cancellation policy?

Refund Policy Refunds minus a credit card fee are available until four weeks before the event. A 50% refund on registration is available until two weeks prior. After this time, registration is not refundable, but your jumps are, as well as Water Training and High-Altitude Jumps, minus a credit card fee. Refunds for Fury Lab are available until two weeks prior, minus a credit card fee.

Do I have to do the puzzles?

Some skydiving knowledge questions are required as part of the game. But the actual “puzzles” on Saturday are entirely optional. You can just skydive. We will have multiple categories of winners – including sky skills only, sub-75 jumps, and overall.

What is the weather plan?

Oh no! Weather is a part of our sport, unfortunately. The bright side is we can keep you occupied with alternate games, activities, and mini-teachings from our mentors. It will be a busy day, regardless!

Can you help me with a recurrency?

Yes! On Wednesday, we have a recurrency forgiveness program so you can get back in the air safely at a reduced cost. If you are not available on Wednesday, we can put you in touch with our school and arrange a private refresher at the regular rate.

What time to do I need to be there?

If you signed up for water training, a canopy course, recurrency training, or a tunnel camp, you will be given specific times to arrive for your event.

Otherwise, on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday, the meet time is “soft,” and you can come and go as you please.

Saturday registration is between 7:00 and 8:00 am, with the briefing beginning at 8:01 sharp.

The event officially closes at 4:00 pm on Sunday, but you can keep jumping until the sun goes down.

I registered but didn’t get a notification

Sometimes, it gets lost in spam. Contact directly to confirm.

I have more than 150 jumps, can I join?

If you have had your license for under 18 months at the start of the event, you can join! It doesn’t matter how many jumps you have in this case.

I have had my license for many years, can I play?

If you have less than 150 jumps at the start of the event, you can play!

I have 26 skydives and barely a license, should I play?

For sure! It would be great if you got some practice in, but you will be in good hands. Since you have a mentor with you and the group number is small, it is a good way to start your life as a licensed skydiver. We allow for high breakoff altitudes too – so the transition should be comfortable.

Can I show up late on Saturday? Do fun jumps? 

No. The meet starts at 8:01am and your team needs you before then to be ready to start on time. You cannot do fun jumps before or during the meet. If there is time, you could do jumps after the rounds are completed.  

I want to come but I don’t have my own gear yet

It’s okay! We partner with Gold State Gear to help Freshlings reserve gear for our event. GSG has a huge fleet of gear, but supplies are limited, so make sure you register early! Gear will be attributed on a ‘first registered, first serve’* basis (depending on size availability too, of course), and priority will be given to the people who register for the whole event.

In individual coaching, Christy has an expert eye for the most important thing to improve in your flying. When coaching a team, Christy emphasizes the basics and the repeated success of her teams shows how building from the basics leads to success.
