2011 Tunnel Camp

Team Fastrax (Ray Dutch) conducts tunnel camp, This camps present the greatest value to teams. The camps are conducted at the IFLY Orando’s Indoor Skydiving wind tunnel.


Our primary goal for one-on-one coaching is to learn all of the basic skills needed to participant in four-way. Learning the right techniques such as; basic body position, side-sliding, going up and down, forward and backward movement and of course (center) turns. You will be briefed on drills that you will employ in combination with all of the above mentioned techniques, in one session.

TWO ON TWO COACHING Two-on-Two coaching Participants must be pre-qualified by coaches to participate. This is for competent flyers that like to train 4-way but can’t fill in the other team slot’s. Team Fastrax offers the opportunity to fly with several coaches per session. This makes it possible for each participant to train the way he or she likes.
