Inevitably all pilots at some point have to deal with different airspeeds close to ground. How will you react? Will you react correctly? The course highlights how different airspeeds are controlled safely for each situation and provides the know-how required to react correctly. This course is also a must if you intend to move into more advanced landings. **REQUIREMENT TO TAKE FLIGHT 201: Minimum of 200 jumps** We also highly recommend to have completed & attended Flight 101 and 102. “Inducing Airspeed” (202) All pilots need to increase airspeed at some point to land safely. The first experience of this should never be in a high stress situation close to the ground! Whilst highlighting possible scenarios, the course provides essential knowledge including methods of building airspeed and how to avoid the pitfalls. For those interested in, or already doing high performance. **REQUIREMENT TO TAKE FLIGHT 202: Minimum of 200 jumps **RECOMMENDATION TO TAKE FLIGHT 202: Completed Flight 201 and 500 jumps.
