Skills

Description

Now that you are becoming proficient as a free flyer and comfortable flying with a partner, learning each of the skills and possibly putting together routines while flying together, you can begin learning the formations and picking a sequence from the 2-way VFS Open dive pool. The entire pool offers an extensive variety of sequences which will challenge your flight ability as no two sequences will be the same.

The 2016 edition of the 2 way VFS rules was updated to assign letters to random formations and numbers to block sequences, similar to what is done in other Formation Skydiving events. This is different from the previous 2 way VFS rules wherein every formation was assigned a number.

Please see the complete Dive Pool for Rookie/Intermediate/Advanced/Open described below with new and former names. Also, note that the video above displays the previous names and an updated video is currently in the works.
