Team Flew-id
Karl and Merriah Eakins

Team Flew-id made their first jumps together in 1998 and attended their first US Nationals as a freestyle team in 2000. Ten years later, the team is still going strong.
Karl and Merriah met at Skydive Hutchinson, and were soon married at the drop zone. Their mutual passion for vertical flight led them into freestyle, and they have been competing ever since. Their efforts have led to a position on the medal stand every year, including winning the gold medal at the 2005 and 2009 US Nationals.
In addition to their freestyle training, the two have also enjoyed instructing AFF students for the past seven years. Karl also spends much of his time shooting tandem videos, and for the past two years, he has also participated in swoop competitions, including winning the gold in Intermediate Canopy Piloting at the 2007 US Nationals. Meanwhile, Merriah busies herself as a Coach Course Director, the event coordinator at Skydive Twin Cities, and as a regular correspondent for Parachutist magazine.
