The Canopy School was founded in 2015 as a result of a simple observation: modern parachute design has transformed the wings we fly, but piloting techniques have not fully adapted. This insight drove NZ Aerosports to unite their network of sponsored athletes and develop The Canopy School syllabus to support them. With our fun and relevant set of courses, skydivers can learn from some of the world’s most experienced pilots how to survive, thrive and love flying their parachutes, no matter what level they are at. The Canopy School is on a mission to help pilots fly safer, faster and further, one course after another.
Our instructors make The Canopy School what it is. We recruit from NZ Aerosports current network of sponsored canopy pilots, and pride ourselves on having a balance of some of the world’s most experienced swoopers and the best up-and-coming young talent. At the core of what drives our team is our mission, “Fly Safer, Fly Faster, Fly Further.” That focus is not just our goal; it’s our lifestyle. It's flying hard. It's landing soft. It's having a few beers with good mates and realising life's better in swoop shorts. Helping skydivers fly safer and have fun is what drives us.
Leader in modern canopy design, NZ Aerosports, is committed to helping educate today’s pilots through The Canopy School. Together we promote safe downsizing and progression. To aid with this over-arching goal, NZ Aerosports will be offering demo canopies through The Canopy School, starting in 2016.
Fly safer. Fly faster. Fly further.
