  • Robbie has been an active canopy coach since the late nineties. He has competed at many National an International Championships, and has run heaps of canopy courses for novice and intermediate pilots, as well as organised and coached many swoop camps for advanced canopy pilots. When he's not running courses, he endeavours to help new parachute pilots at DZ's to plan and debrief their canopy flight.
