Secondary Instructors

In addition to our core staff, Airborne Academy hires several secondary instructors to help teach classes. Each of these individuals must go through a screening process that includes face-to-face interviews, personal references, and a background check. Since we take pride in the level of instruction we provide, we only hire the best! Every secondary instructor we employ is required to have strong experience and knowledge of the sport, as well as the ability to work with individuals and groups of children, in a positive way.
