SkydiVR in action at The Ranch...

We have found it best to have the VR unit PC, VR goggles and Kinect controller on a cart with wheels.  This means it can be easily moved to where it works best for either student training or entertaining DZ visitors, then stored safely afterwards.

Don't just take our word for it...

Here is what some of our students say about SkydiVR:

 

#1 DZ VISITORS

Drop zones visitors watching their loved ones tandem jump are prepared to pay for the experience of a canopy ride without the risk.  

Next, they often decide to jump...!

Tandem passengers waiting for their turn to jump, or wanting to re-experience also want to preview or re-live the experience, and learn more.

 

#2 students using technology they love

Virtual reality has quickly gained a high profile, and especially with the millennial generation.  

Students are more likely to enjoy their jump and come back when better trained and more comfortable with decisions they face flying their canopies.  Skydiving canopy students using SkydiVR (tm) realize the following benefits emphasizing their Student Canopy Targeted Learning Objectives:

1 Reinforce what a safe parachute looks like.
Four "S's": Parachute Square? Flying StraightSlider down?  Steerable 

2 Find landmarks and landing area with similar wind conditions on the day they jump.

3 Practice deciding if they can get back to the landing area.

4 Parachute flight:

  • Effects of half flare, full flare, stall and how the canopy behaves
  • Effects of wind on a parachute:
    • Assessing groundspeed and ground track
    • Holding, crabbing and running with the wind

5 Traffic pattern approach altitude points

6 When on final approach to practice assessing their actual landing point
