The compleat Wing suit List

Recommended Posts

Pretty sure that was an S3S - so the same backwards.

Wait, didn't you invent backflying vents on that jump? :P

If you start listing all non commercially available / prototype suits the list of course will be endless. I for example flew somewhere in the early 2000 a birdman "S2" which was a prototype prior the launch of S3. It had bigger armwing than the original skyflyer but was not the same suit than the S3. Also there were couple of S1's floating around with "BASE leg wing" (a wider legwing mod for BASE purposes).

And speaking of mods, there is of course the well famous "Lordi mod" by our Visa "the rocketman" Parviainen on his Blade : https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/179643_495379314929_600639929_6139955_6259681_n.jpg

Edit : Also looking at the list, the hungarian Intrud Air also at least had a tracking suit in some point of time. I jumped it once off the High Ultimate in LB and it didn't feel too bad to be honest. No idea if it is commercially available today or not. Also on the Tony Suit order form (http://www.tonywingsuits.com/wsd/WingSuitForm_apr11.pdf) there is a check box for a tracking suit called tracker but I've never seen any pictures of this suit let alone to see it in action. Maybe somebody in this forum can share a bit more info on this suit?

Most likely that year was 2002 than...the number (at least according to Jari back than) was linked to the year in which the suit came out/was designed.

The Skyflyer 1 (S1) came out in 2001
The Skyflyer 3 (S3) came out in 2003

Ive flown a Skyflyer 3 1/2 or whatever it was for a long time. I white suit which was AFAIK the last suit Robert made while at BM.
It was a Skyflyer3, with a wider legwing, and mylar ribs. The tail extended slightly further past/down the toes (though got shortened a bit due to damage from walking in it too much)

The Skyflyer1 with 'skyflyer 3' style legwing is actually still around in quite a few places. Many people moded their Skyflyer1 after the skyflyer 3 came out.

Another two to add to the non comercial/prototype section would be the

Tony Suits Albatross I


And the biggest wingsuit in the air right now, the Tony Suits Albatross II...

If Tony doesn't (or did not ever) sell that suit, then it would probably not be in Klaus's suit database. But if someone insists on getting suit X into the database, contacting Klaus can make it happen (https://paralog.net/)



Yep. He only made one albatross II. No templates for it either. The biggest suit in the sky is a forever one of a kind. But still deserves a spot in the proto section of any list.
