Highlights: NOT A TYPICAL SIV!
Fear and excitement are prevalent energies of a regular SIV. This training concept highlights the mental component, helping to free our minds and bodies of manoeuvre-anxiety and empowering our unconscious to support our learning goals.

Managing the mind provides more opportunity to be present during your runs, allowing each pilot to take more from their course, leaving with a higher level of self-confidence and awareness of their achievements.
