We are extremely excited to launch our NZPF Roadshows this summer, a series of events aimed at helping you improve your skills in canopy, formation skydiving, freeflying and wingsuiting too!  These events are aimed at a range of skill levels from the novice right through to those with experience.


These NZPF roadshows are open to everyone but are FREE or heavily discounted for our members (a fee will apply to non-members), giving you access to some awesome coaches, so you can improve your skills in a wide range of areas.  

For some events, slots are extremely limited and there is a registration process, so get in quick and don't miss out!

Canopy Roadshow

Kieran "Kitsch" Baldwin is a silver medalist and NZ representative, winning a shiny medal at the World Canopy Piloting Championships in 2015. Currently a Alter Ego Coach along side World #1 Curt Bartholemew and world record holder Nick Batsch. Although Kitsch is considered a rockstar in his field, he delivers his canopy courses across all levels (from complete novice to those who are at competition level) with energy, enthusiasm and passion. No matter how little or how much you know about canopy flight, you have something to learn from these dedicated courses. Courses are limited to ensure a suitable student to coach ratio, with theory and practical elements throughout the day. Following an initial introduction brief, each jump will be preceeded by a brief on exit, canopy drills, pattern and landing and each canopy flight and landing will be filmed. De-briefs will be in a group environment, allowing everyone to learn from each other. 

Freefly Roadshow

Local and guest coaches will be on hand to send your skills sky high! Members of SDK Freefly, NZs leading freefly team who train and compete all over the world and guest coaches will be available. The early freefly roadshows will be concentrating on mastering the basics through 1 on 1 and progression into small group jumps. The release of the freefly dive pool (NZ National Skydiving Championships - freefly) means teams are well prepared and our coaches will be taking you through the moves and teaching you all the tips and tricks to score some mega points! For those who are a little more advanced there will be more challenging jumps available too. 

Formation Skydiving Roadshow

Calling all belly flyers! 4-way skydiving is still regarded as the most popular event across the world but this isn't just about 4-way. For beginners to advanced flyers, come along and get involved in some fun, no pressure skydives where you get the opportunity to learn from the best.  The NZPF are super excited to have female 4-way champion Kate Vaughan visiting our shores to run two camps, at Skydive Auckland and at Skydive Abel Tasman.  We will be working on helping people acheive their A and B Certificate and getting teams ready for 2-way scrambles and some serious 4-way fun at the NZ National Skydiving Championships. For those who want more of a challenge, we'll be working towards sequential bigways and might mix it up with some hybrid challenges along the way. There are a mixture of coaches, including some guest coaches from overseas! 

Wingsuit Roadshow

Ezi (Erin) is a wingsuit coach, world record holder and passionate about every level from beginner to advanced, from flocking to dynamic and we've got him on board to share his knowledge.  Although he is availabe for first-flight courses independently, Ezi will be focussing on developing the skills of those who have a few consolidation jumps under their belts - right up to those who want to get their flock on or start learning more dynamic manoeuvres in the sky.
