Great video. I'm up to about the 1:15 mark in your video progression... and your experiences up to that part seem like a mirror of mine so far. It's good to know progression is possible. Thanks for sharing that!

Dude awesome video!! I know you said it was 20 hours but how many days, weeks, or months was this spread over? Nice flying by the way. Cool

The overall video is over about 18 months but the majority of the flying has been in 2012, I'm at about 16-17 hours for the year.

Thats awesome! The video shows that there is possibility for progression. I am at about 1 hour and 20 minutes and I'm going to start back flying next weekend. I have a question if you don't mind? How long did it take you to start back flying? Just trying to gauge haw far along I am compared to others?
Thanks Smile

Proper instructors are a blast :)

We have here in S-Pete Fabian (Ramsey) and Alex from Skywalkers for a visit, and their students just rocks! I could say that they are like 20-40% effective than 'avegage' student flyer.


Awesome clip, thanks for sharing!

Awesome vid. Its got me excited. Im thinking of moving over to the UK, just so that I can hit the windtunnels :) Any idea on how much you spent on 20 hours? Im guessing alot of the time was shared with other flyers and not all of it was coached?

will do

yes, he rocks :)
we are lucky to have him here for the whole month :)

speaking back to subject and this cool vid, I noticed that you Americans use kind of different approach, like 'first you do all the static like backfly, sitfly, headdown on normal speeds and then will be transitions'. Europeans guys here are more like dynamic flyers, they do not teach postures and positions much, but make heavy accent on movements and transitions, even from the very begining. Both schools give great flyers, I just wonder which is more effective.

For me personally, it took me about an hour to get really good with belly, on my back I'm at about 80 minutes and about to start Sitfly. Backfly can take a bit more time because you have to learn rolls and basic Belly-Back & Back-Belly transitions along with everything else. Crazy

Excellent vid. I'm at 20 hours presently and your transitions are smoking mine. Great job!

Re: [bilt2ride] 20 hours of wind tunnel flying in 4 minutes [In reply to] Can't Post

nice project!
i think it would be really useful to people starting in the tunnel if you could put milestones: after 1h after 5h after 10h etc. since there are some huge blanks: there is a split second of HD on the net and then you are flying stable HD.

that way we can see how long was the belly training, the back training etc Smile

im pretty sure this is the nation wide standard for learning HD in the windy circle room.

Great video! I just finished up 2 hours at SVCO and managed to get head down. Next trip sometime next year is transitions and cleaning up back, sit, & head down. I'm at 4.5hrs total. Great instructors!

Thanks for posting! It really is encouraging to see your progression. And kudos for being a good sport and posting the exit at 2:10 :)

I wish I could have included more of my good wipeouts but I had to cut out a lot of good stuff to get it down to a reasonable length
