Wingsuits BANNED!

Recommended Posts

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! B|

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.



What?

Apples and Oranges... Well, probably far different then that even.

That's not a beginner site by any means. That jump is not your typical Kjerag, Swiss Disney Valley, or Italian Terminal wall.

Are you just trying to add sensationalism? If so, good job!

Edited to add, comparing base and skydiving is awkward at best sometimes. Especially site / DZ politics.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :S:oB|

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.
