The FlySafe Canopy School was founded in 2013 by Bruno Geada at Skydive Algarve, Portugal. At the time he wanted to create a canopy school to meet the needs of the large number of new skydivers attending the dropzone. The canopy school grew, and now receives over 200 students a year.
In 2015 Icarus Canopies NZ founded “The Canopy School” and invited Bruno to join their team of experienced canopy pilots. Flysafe started to give courses following “The Canopy School” syllabus, applying the knowledge and experience gained over the years.
The school is focused on improving the skills of beginners to advanced pilots, offering canopy courses, one-on-one and group canopy coaching and flock coaching, giving all the support and instruction to canopy pilots of all experience levels. We also help you with the qualifications to get your BPA, USPA and FPPQ Canopy Licenses.
You can fly your canopy better!
Believe in it!
Be the pilot!
First Load Mafia is the poster child for giving up on the rat race and changing your life in the pursuit of something utterly pointless and beautiful. Each of its core members at some point threw away everything and adventured off to dedicate every waking energy to learning about falling out of the sky, with style. Starting at the bottom, they did everything they could just to be at a dropzone every day and to keep jumping. The name itself comes from this time when the only way to get a jump together was on the first load of the day before the long hours of DZ work started.
FLM offers honest and dedicated coaching for individuals or groups in all popular disciplines, video flying and editing, load organising and other assorted mayhem. FLM remain focused on FreeFly, Fun Jumping (and generally being broke and happy) Through their ethos they have gained a high level not only in flying skills but also in the theory of skydiving in general, from the basic philosophy of saftey and progression and dropzone functionality to the less discussed aspects such as “why do we jump?”, “what are we running from?” and “who is buying the next round?”
For FLM nothing brings more joy than seeing a student progress and their smile on the landing area when they have just nailed a new trick. Importantly to them- FLM only partakes in outdoor skydiving. While the windtunnel is certainly a wonderful tool to ultra rapid progression they see things slightly differently. The goal is not to turbo boost to the top. When we reach the top then what is there left to do? For FLM skydiving is 100% an outdoor sport.
The core Mafia members can be found at Skydive Algarve and Skydive Spain and are always available for a day of training, organising or fun jumping. They consist of: Hamish Cameron, Willem de Groot, Alistair Cameron, Devon Apps, and Serena di Santo!
Roy is originally from Israel and he now lives here in the sunny algarve. He’s been skydiving for 10 years and has an endless passion for flying in the sky and teaching others to do the same.
His main focus is movement and dynamic flying, for all levels. On top of this type of coaching, Roy is a highly experienced photographer and videographer and can offer camera coaching as well as private camera work.
If you want to learn how to fly better, create awesome videos, or have an awesome video (or photos) taken of you, or maybe all of the above, in one outrageous day, talk to Roy!
