Wingsuit weekends @ Teuge, The Netherlands. Can't Post

The weekends of September 27-28 and November 01-02 Ill be organizing two wingsuit camps in cooperation with National Skydiving Center Teuge, The Netherlands (www.para-teuge.nl).

The first weekend is meant to make the beginners enthusiastic for this discipline and to let them make their first jumps after instruction and under supervision. Well transform you from fallers into flyers. With the more experienced flyers we start flying formations, as preparation for the upcoming National record attempts. The second weekend the focus will be on bigger formations. Of course less experienced flyers are welcome as well.

As BMI Ill be accompanied by a few experienced flyers to give all participants the attention they need. Registration fee is 20 and Ive 8 wingsuits (incl. 1 Matter) available which are for rent at 12 / jump incl. instruction (after 8 jumps 8). Birdman will also send some demo suits in NOT standard sizes. The instruction jumps are partly sponsored by the the DZ Paracentrum Teuge. The other part ( 10) is on account of the student. So for ONE extra jumpticket you jump with a wingsuit and an instructor.

So far 15 beginners and 15 flyers with experience (all Dutch) have registered and I expect a lot more will follow. Itll be a great gathering.

Hope to C ya @ Teuge,

Henny Wiggers

Yippy!!!! Made my first 6 (!!) wingsuit jumps yesterday!!!

This friday night I attended a seminar, given by Henny Wiggers & Jean-Louis Beckers. Next morning, I was on the first load, wearing a borrowed Classic I for a video-ed first (oops) BM jump with Jean-Louis. Man that smile didn't vanish for the rest of the day SmileSmileSmile

Hit 49 mph, with an average of 60 mph, which I thought was pretty cool.

After that, tried some more 2-ways and a 3-way, which didn't always work out real good (if somebody takes off, you're bound to be too late following them Crazy), so that needs some (ehm a LOT) more work, from all of us.

But man, is this fun!!!!!!!!! Smile

There were 21 bird-men and -women, of all shapes and sizes: tall (2.03 m), short (1.54 m), thick and thin, but for everybody there was a suitable suit.

An estimated total of over a 100 BM jumps were made yesterday, from 13k-15k. This must be a dutch record; so many penguins/penguin-loads ?! Wink

Most of the jumps were recorded by the available pro-tracks, freefall times of almost 2 minutes came up frequently.

Today more wingsuiters will be joining us, for a refinement of techniques, and for the advanced jumpers, some more formations.

However, so far the weather hasn't been very cooperative Unsure

We flew 2 loads today (bad weather) and we did a few 4/5 ways (most people are showing up tomorrow...didn't come today with the rain and clouds and all..Frown)

We managed to land 12,5 Kilometers from the dropzone due to some incompetent a**hole flying base, who had no idea where he was going (okay..nobody could see a thing or had a clue about where we where.....but you have to blame someoneCool)

Wonder who that was....Blush

Farmers with Pitchforks in the field where we landed, a lot of yelling in Dutch (lucky James didn't understand one wordCool) then realizing nobody had a mobile phone with him...and taking the one female wingsuiter in the flock to an old lady down the road the ask in a shy, polite way if we could use the phone...

Back just in time for beer and dinner....(pics from saskia will follow)

She has 150 wingsuit jumps now btw. (as opposed to the one above..where she had 6Tongue)

Riiight... Thanx a***hole for digging up this old thread CrazyTongue

My 150th wingsuit jump.... This is my home DZ and I also had absolutely no clue whatsoever where we were, so not entirely your fault Wink

First jump with my new (2nd hand though) 20 mm lens on my D70 I managed little in the way of birdman pics....

This is what pics I did get:

"Dank u wel" to everyone at Teuge dropzone for a great weekend Smile The weather may have not been so accommodating but the dz and jumpers made up for it, making me feel welcome and at home Cool.

Rolf Brombach & Henny Wiggers both did a great job organising the flocks. We managed 5 loads whilst I was there (but perhaps the guys managed some more yesterday evening?)

It was great to meet Saskia, Jarno, J-lo, Rick and all the other Dutch wingsuit pilots who attended Smile

Jarno gave us a sneak preview of his new 3D flock briefing application. Very, very cool, allowing you to simulate the formation building, flying and breaking off as an animation from any camera angle imaginable.

The 12km off landing was quite an adventure Tongue luckily Dutch farmers do not always carry shotguns! Farmer McNasty thought he was under attack as 5 canopies came swooping into his field. It was not all Jarno's fault, none of us had checked the spot prior to climbing out. Unsure

There is another wingsuit weekend planned for 8-10th July at Teuge - if you can make it I would strongly recommend it. Great DZ, great people, great flyers and a great aircraft. All the ingredients are there for some awesome flocks and Henny has some cool formations planned Smile

Cool pics... the person with the red face mask thingy seems to have his arm positioned quite low, but maybe it's an optical delusion. Wink

Saskia, I'm gonna try to see if Sony's Vegas understands the raw DV files I captured off the cameras. I have some editing experience, so I would like to try to put together the footage as well. Hope that's ok? I mean, there's not really a problem if there are 2 videos using the same material is there?

I find it weird that Premiere converts them to AVI when capturing them. Digital camera's don't actually record in avi file format with DVSB codec I think?

Anyways, maybe GSpot (http://www.videohelp.com/tools?tool=115) or VirtualDub (http://www.videohelp.com/...s?tool=VirtualdubMOD)will help identify it. Unsure

Good luck. I'll let you know if Vegas will read the files.

Cheers

As promised, here's a video I hacked toghether last night:

http://www.xs4all.nl/...ngsuitweekend-hq.avi

It's a 50MB DivX avi. Enjoy!

I have no idea what my bandwidth quota is, but if it dies, I'll put it somewhere else (and post the link of course). Or maybe I'll make it a bittorrent download; but maybe people aren't familiar with that?

Cheers
