"I have taken Greg Windmiller's canopy courses many times and have learned a tremendous amount each time. The depth of his knowledge is incredible for any level of canopy flyer. Greg Windmiller is the canopy whisperer!"

"Matt Leonard’s ability to quickly and accurately assess the performance and procedures of a student, coupled with his perpetual optimism makes for a superb learning experience. Add in his ability to explain complex processes and fundamentals of physics and how it relates to your canopy flight makes him one of my favorite coaches."

-Casey Tylek, Jumptown Orange, MA

"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!"

"I took my first canopy course in May of 2012 with Greg Windmiller. I took the course in hopes of meeting the requirements for my B license, and to finally be able to master the art of the stand up landing. I left the course with something far more valuable, the love of the canopy. Oh how I love landing where I want, and having the skill and knowledge to know how to pull it off. I contribute that 100% to Greg Windmiller's course. Since that first course I have taken 10 other canopy courses. I have taken my most recent canopy course once again with Greg Windmiller. His course was so different from all the other courses, in that, he designs each course with a basic understanding of the canopy flight, but also manages to make each course feel like an individual course based upon each persons skill level. Each one of us in a group of 10 were working on what we needed and wanted to learn to be better canopy pilots. Although done as a group, each one of us felt like we had our own private canopy coach! Everyone at that course improved. I also learned that knowledge and coaching of piloting the canopy goes way beyond getting the B license. Greg Windmiller's canopy courses offer all of this."

"After my crashing and burning in my first swoop comp was when I realized I needed some serious coaching. After asking around who the best coach was, one name kept coming up: Greg Windmiller. I arranged a training session with him for a couple days before the next competition and we began building my skills from the ground up. I cannot emphasize the amount of knowledge and professionalism that comes from being coached by Greg. His attention to detail, which to my untrained eye would have never seen, is the main reason why I have been able to enjoy this sport so much. Even on jumps where I knew I messed up pretty much everything, Greg always looked for positive ways for me to improve and mentioned some things to avoid. Thanks to Greg's expert coaching I was able to move from the advanced to pro class in competition canopy piloting in less than 2 seasons. In closing, when I recommend people for either beginner, advanced or expert flying level coaching there is only one name I recommend; my friend, and proud to say my coach, Greg Windmiller".
