A Video Experiment

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!

Being competitors at heart, Niklas and Brianne do their best to improve on a daily basis. This applies not only to competitions, but also their business and life’s work – AXIS Flight School. AXIS has gone through an incredible online transformation, which could be called a “Cyber Grand Re-opening”. These changes have been taking place behind the scenes for over two years.

The AXIS website has always been packed with lots of useful tools and information. In order to make the site more user friendly and to keep up with the times more than a facelift was needed. In fact, we started over. Major improvements include a color coded menu system which is easy to navigate, condensed information on every page, and not to be overlooked – The AXIS Skydiving Repository. Here we developed a digital sorting system that categorizes all or our articles and reference materials for faster recall. Now users can search for categories such as solo skills, canopy, camera, and much more to find what you are looking for.

In addition, AXIS Flight School now uses sig.ma, a platform on which you can keep track of accomplishments, IDs, licenses, merits, etc. in a digital form. This allows us to send merits to students who have demonstrated their proficiency to our AXIS Coaches™ and acknowledge their achievements. Available Merits are displayed at the top of each web page, and their colors correspond to the new menu system.

Our online tools are still available to all for free. All AXIS dive pool images, Draw Generator, and ChronoPrism have all been updated with the new 2019 formations.

AXIS HQ Coffee on the go

AXIS_web_banner_11

Anyone who has spent more than a few minutes at AXIS Flight School knows that we are addicted to coffee. What makes matters worse is that we are snobs, too. Some of our favorite coffee brands include: illy, Black Rifle Coffee Company, and Flight Coffee. Our espresso machine of choice is made by Breville. The only downside is that the crown jewel of our office does not travel well due to its size and weight. So what are we to do when convenience (Starbucks) and compromise (drinking less) won’t do when we are on the road?

Enter the AXIS Mobile Espresso Kit to the rescue!
