The 8-way dive pools have been updated with new outdoor and indoor formations. Blocks 14, 15, and 21 have been replaced in the outdoor pool. Blocks 17 and 20 will remain the same for outdoor, but have been replaced in the indoor pool.
AXIS Flight School would like to thank Arizona Airspeed for including us in their annual invitational event – The Arizona Airspeed Challenge. Over the course of the memorial day weekend, members of the USA National 4-way Formation Skydiving Team organized some tricky 60-ways over Skydive Arizona. Jumping from an altitude of 16,000 feet, there were multiple successful completions. The last formation was built and held for 12 seconds!
“There’s No Speed Like…AIRSPEED!”

On September 30th – October 3rd, Skydive Elsinore hosted its annual Chicks Rock Boogie. 2021 marked the event’s 20th anniversary, which had a space odyssey theme. Over the weekend Brianne and Nik of AXIS Fight School organized a variety of jumps including belly, free-fly, tracking, angle flying, canopy flocking, and even an 11-way hybrid with an orbiting wing-suiter. Jumping form Caravans, Otters, and a Skyvan, there was something for everyone. At night there were festivities, live music, and many opportunities to socialize. Brianne and Nik also participated in the night swoops event. Check out the recap video below. Looking forward to next year!
AXIS Flight School is trying something new during the COVID-19 shuttdown. Since jumpers and tunnel flyers are grounded for a while, AXIS is giving workout realted videos a try on its YouTube channel. The new content is intended to support physical skills relevant to skydiving, rather than focusing on aesthetics. In the first video, Nik covers the topic of grip strength and shares some of the excersises he does to stay in jumping shape. If you enjoy this kind of content and would like to see more, please let us know in the comment section of the video. Happy Training!

AXIS Flight School would like to thank Garnett and Dave at Skydive Radio for hosting us on their show (#249). Brianne and Nik discuss the value of incorporating visualization parctices to enhace performance.
AXIS Flight School has introduced a new discipline – HFS (Horizontal Formation Skydiving), which is intended for indoor skydiving and utilizes both the belly and back-flying orientations simultaneously. It is therefore related to the horizontal rounds drawn during an MFS advanced event, but with an expanded dive pool in order to facilitate more rounds. These disciplines are a great stepping stone for those with formation skydiving experience and are wanting to explore free-flying. There are two versions to choose from: 2-way and 4-way. Both have been added to the AXIS DrawGenerator.
The 2-way HFS dive pool incorporates some elements from the USPA MFS and Collegiate dive pools, as well as the USIS 2-way VFS event. In addition there are some new formations created by AXIS to further expand the pool.
