Phoenix-Fly Coach - Examiners & Training 30/04/2010
The last half year, the Phoenix-Fly instructor program has been on a temporary pause due to several reasons. But we're happy to report that we're starting with many new dates and events planned for training of new wingsuit coaches.
The instructional program has had a few revisions:
The name is now 'Phoenix-Fly Coach' (meaning a PFI is now a PFC/PFC number). Though the name-change maybe takes a bit of pressure of the expectations, the actual changes in the PFC program should do the opposite.
The first one is that PF Coaches will be responsible for sticking to the recommendations regarding first flight training. Complaints on any PF appointed coach in terms of incorrect training of first timers will result in numbers being pulled.
Effective from this point on, complaints can be sent to email@example.com
In case of complaints, the PFC-examiners will vote on retracting the PFC rating, and take appropriate action.
Another important change is that people listed as a Phoenix-Fly Coach on the (new) website will get a more in depth description. The PFC number is proof that a coach is capable of teaching, guiding, flying together, and signing of on instructional jumps for first timers. But on top of that there are many other variables that may be important in selecting a coach. And not always things coaches are capable of and offering. Its up to each coach to say how he/she wants to be listed, but at the same time, that listing does put expectations on their offering which they should be able to meet.
Listed here is a rough write-up on what you will find on the new PF website.
photo & SD/HD video
- coaches that also offer dedicated photo/video jumps.
aerobatic skills & advanced coaching
- proven skills in back flying, barrel rolls and dock's
- listing acquired through submitted video or examination jump with a PFC-E
- experienced at running/organizing wingsuit events and briefing/debriefing wingsuit formations.
- beginner wingsuits (Prodigy2, Acro2, Phantom2) present for first flight instruction and/or other high-end suits for demo use.
Combined with this program update, we also have several new Examiners for both the USA and Europe.
Ed Pawlowski - USA
Jeannoel Itzstein - France
Scotty Burns - USA
Douglas Spotted Eagle - USA
Mirko Schmidt - Germany - PFC
Jarno Cordia - Netherlands/Belgium
James Macdonald - Macca - United Kingdom
Chuck Blue - USA
Benedikt Klees - Germany/Belgium
Coming month, there will be dates announced on future USA and EU PFC courses. More information on the program will than posted on the new Phoenix-Fly website.
At the moment all documents associated with the PFC program are also undergoing small updates, and this information for active and current PF Coaches will be put online soon as well, as well as an (email) request to every listed PFI asking them to update their information.
