Over the 4th of July weekend, AXIS Flight School visited Skydive Suffolk in Virginia to coach and organize. Skydive Suffolk is the premier skydiving center in the Virginia Beach area and has been in operation since 1960.
On the first day, the DZ enjoyed good weather with partly cloudy skies. Jumps were made from the DZ’s PAC 750 and Skyvan until sunset. Nik and Brianne oraganized some challenging yet fun jumps for the locals, including belly and freefly disciplines.
A couple of attempts were made at the Virginia state head down record, and for the sunset load AXIS organized a swoop and chug to close out the day. Unfortunately the weather quickly turned that evening and did not clear for the remainder of the event.
We look forward to returning to this awesome drop zone and highly recommend other jumpers check it out if you are in the area. Here are some images by Jimmy Hatch for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

In a recent newsletter, the company featured AXIS Flight School as one of 5 BRANDS KILLING IT WITH CONTENT.
“There are several brands in the skydiving industry doing an excellent job of connecting with their audiences by generating excellent content. An examination of who’s doing it and why it’s so good.
AXIS Flight School has been producing great content from an entertainment standpoint as well as an educational one. Have a look at their YouTube page and you’ll see a huge variety of stuff. Their brand awareness is way up (I wouldn’t know much about them if not for their videos and content in various magazines).
The best marketing resonates. The best way to resonate is to be authentic and use storytelling to showcase who you are. This resonates with Millennials (our number 1 target market) and our general customer base. It’s time to stop selling and start showcasing who we are and why we’re passionate about what we do.” – James La Barrie
AXIS would like to thank James and DropZone Marketing for the shout out.
