"I've taken Greg's course twice, for my B-License and again because I was learning how to build speed on landing. Each time I walked away with new skills and more knowledge about how canopies work. Very soon after that first course I had two incidents where his lessons kept me out of situations that could have easily left me in an ambulance or worse. Greg can convey concepts related to the physics of a canopy to anyone from baby jumpers to swoopers. He takes the time to explain why things happen to the canopy and how it interacts with the air; it's made me more aware of my environment and safer as a result. Also, as a fellow veteran, I was happy to see that, while his personality shows his military background, he doesn't have a stiff instructor attitude some expect. He's affable and fun while maintaining that Army confidence that encourages students to trust him as a mentor. So, yeah, if you can take his course: do it! I certainly will."

"During my progression in the sport of skydiving I have had the incredible opportunity of working with Matt Leonard in group settings and one on one canopy coaching. Matt’s coaching has allowed me to efficiently progress in the discipline of canopy piloting, while maintaining safety as the highest priority. Matt’s ability to simplify canopy theory and adapt to any pilots needs and goals, is unparalleled, and the reason I look forward to Superior Flight Solutions canopy courses. Whatever your goals may be, this course will make you a more confident, safe, and capable pilot under your wing!"
