What's a good vertical speed? in Wing Suit Flying May 2, 2009 Simply chasing after the slowest average fall rate will only cultivate bad flying habits. Learn all flight modes between trying to get the slowest fall rate to spending a segment of the flight trying to fly to some place. It is just like making a turn, think about it(I want to go there) and the rest of the stuff is intuitive. Anything close to 50mph is a good. I don't know who these top pilots are but no one of your height and weight has flown 32mph average(from 13k to 3k) in a classic suit.
