MGBlog_2After competing at the 2017 World Cup in Germany, Brianne Thompson and Niklas Daniel of AXIS Flight School attended the Mountain Gravity event to fly their parachutes in the Swiss Alps. Jumping out of the legendary Pink Skyvan, participants came from all over the world to take in the fantastic scenery at the Ambri Airport, which is situated in the steep sided alpine valley of the Ticino river.

 

Over the course of three days, Nik and Brianne did several jumps swooping down the mountain, doing some MFS, and canopy flocking.

There are two major routes down the mountain: The tree-line (left), or the canyon (right).

Don’t forget to check out the Mountain Gravity Vimeo channel.

The Profiles of Skydiving Club. BOOYAH!!!

Brian Giboney wrote his first “Profile” column for the February 1999 edition of Parachutist, and he hasn’t slowed down since. A few days ago, AXIS Flight School received a letter from Brian that explained he had reached his 200th profile, which took him 17 years without missing an issue! A feat AXIS respects and is blown away by. AXIS currently has 68 Foundations of Flight installments which it started contributing to the magazine non-stop since April 2011, and therefore we can appreciate the amount of work that goes into writing a monthly column!

Congratulations Brian on your success. We look forward to reading more profiles to learn about the individuals who influence our awesome sport.
