Get Into Camera Flying

When it comes to competition, camera flyers are in high demand and there is often a shortage at State and National Championships. To overcome this the APF in conjunction with Australia’s leading videographers have developed a program to encourage skydivers to learn the classic art of skydiving videography.

Beginner to advanced camera training will be offered during small competition events around the country.

What you’ll learn

  • Camera safety
  • Equipment setup
  • Flying skills – exit timing, approaching safely, proximity and framing


Some camera experience is recommended, but not essential. If you’ve never done camera before you should book in early so your coach can contact you to coordinate a training plan before you attend the course.

Course cost is $50 per event. All registration fees will go towards a complete camera helmet setup for the most improved participant of the entire program.

B-Rel Buddy

This program has been developed by the APF after consultation with DZ operators, instructors and B-Rel candidates. The program is intended to support novice skydivers and to aid them in identifying coaches that are available in their area. B - Rel Buddies provide their skills to you for the cost of their slot only and will become your greatest mentor now and in to the future through out your skydiving experiences. B-Rel candidates are invited to go to the Register of Coaches to seek the right mentor for their current skydiving objectives. The APF advises that any person wishing to utilise the services of any coach or instructor found on the APF register of coaches, should apply their own due diligence before selecting a coach.

B - Rel Boost

One of the biggest hurdles to a skydiver in the early months, is the cost! To support your early progression in skydiving, the APF, together with participating DZs, will provide B - Rel Boost camps that offer the best coaches available to help you complete the B - Rel table. Keep an eye on the APF Calendar of Events to see when these camps are being run. Approved B - Rel Boost camps can be funded, so come prepared to complete the table!
