Freeflying is a relatively new discipline in sports parachuting, only been around ten years or so, and focuses on being able to fly the body in a number of different positions, in control with others etc. Check out www.freeflyeuphoria.com for further info. Unfortunately the people in charge of running adventurous training have deemed that this discipline is not to be taught on advanced courses run at Netheravon! Does any body know why this is? It seems to me that many other fringe sports and disciplines become accepted quite quickly by military sporting circles, so why has this one been discarded by the powers that be? So much for the promise of supporting army athletes in this particular area. In 2005 Freefly team Euphoria, UK representatives at the space/world air games, offered free coaching of the discipline to forces personnel, attending an advanced parachuting course at Netheravon Parachute centre. The offer was declined and students attending the course were all wondering why they did not have the oppotunity to practise and learn modern skydiving. Freeflying or modern skydiving as its know is also excluded from The Army Championships??? I find this the equivalent of banning Army snow or wake boarding. Are we just seeing the result of short sighted, old boyâs club attitude from the people who are meant to push sports parachuting and adventurous training in the armed forces? Probably. So glad Iâm out and away from this type of unprogressive attitude, God Save the Queen Iâm off to Spain!
