Looks tough. My thoughts is you will end up having a lot of people do 3 ways that will never get to jump with people that are better, because the better freefliers would get bored doing all that stuff. The alternative, is pay somebody to jump with you 50 or 100 times till you could do all that. But that gets spendy.
Nice intentions, but I doubt it will work for the masses.
There is no way that anyone at my DZ is even close to passing anything past skill level 3. Some people have no intention of getting close in to turn points or dock while freeflying. Are these people going to be stuck dooing 3 ways and smaller?
