Wingsuits BANNED! Can't Post

Wingsuit BASE jumps banned here


Given there are swoop ponds drying up, a DZ or two banning wingies, now a popular BASE site banning them.....

Wake up people. Jump smarter, learn more, die less.

Seems the "if we don't police ourselves, someone else will" expression IS true.

Another sensational post.

Yes, temporary ban on wingsuits in Chamonix. This is BASE. Nothing to post here about.
Looks like the town wants to start discussion to facilitate wingsuiting along with other aerial sports in the area.
Of course there will be a temporary ban, especially after a fatality.

Again, this is BASE. Some people do stupid shit, sometimes there are accidents. You don't know the details. But hey - WINGSUITS BANNED! Pirate

to get back to jumping there, I suspect a period for mourning after the recent fatality coupled with an effort from local WS base jumpers to establish guidelines that if followed would help prevent future fatalities. Guidelines like minimum jump recommendations, etc.

WINGSUIT BAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CrazyShockedPirate

I didn't think it was quite tasty enough to be considered sensational, but if you say so.
Laugh

Needs more mention of brands to be sensational.

dunno if you're counting my local DZ in that, but here there wasn't even an incident, it was a ban out of the blue. With a WS population of about 10.
