I think it also depends on the load organiser. But if they do a great job, whats 'decent'

If its somebodies fulltime job, you cant expect them to fly to Swiss (or wherever), sleep in a hotel, make lots of jump filming you and briefing/debriefing, eating, and then hope to pay for all that by putting 10 euros in a hat with a group of 15 people..:P

At some point these guys have to make a living, and you just need to see the vallue in what they are providing..

I think wingsuit is one of the few diciplines in skydiving where people still dont see the added vallue of coaching (and the price some people ask), and prefer to pay 20 to 30 euros max for a full week of video/coaching/debriefs etc, while its perfectly normal to get a full week of freefly coaching at a price of 2 slots + 30 euros (per jump).

That aside...I think his 'amazing...' was aimed at the video/event information posted in the first message of this thread;)

I agree with you both...B|

Zun is definitely a professional Wingsuit Coach.
Everyone who was once in one of his Skill Camps will agree.

I am not the organizer of this event, but took over reponsibility to get Zun here.
So don't worry - Zun will be paid for coaching!

Everyone is welcome, let's make some nice flights over the swiss mountains.

Brand war is forbidden there!!!

Oh yes: it doesn't mean that you are not allowed to pay Zun a beer...
To collect with a hat may be also a cool idea :)

Load organising is different than 1-1 coaching...
34€ per day per person for L.O. was not reasonable (as a "package price")(and some people only could do like 1 or 2 jumps a day...)
If jumping in a group, I'd gladly pay 2-3€ per jump for L.O.
