  1. This is just to make sure that everyone is aware of the recent decision by FAI/IPC to accept Wingsuiting as a competition discipline. They have also approved the bid by the UK to host the first World Cup in May this year. Sorry for the short notice but we already had those dates set to hold this competition anyway. The good news is that this means 2016 can be the first World Championships. The Facebook event is here and we will shortly be posting on a dedicated website page. https://www.facebook.com/events/776523132414122/?fref=ts Please contact me at [email protected] for any questions. Thanks, Jackie

  5. Everything is in place for the competition this weekend. Looking forward to seeing lots of you there. Due to popular demand we now have 3 events; Performance, Artistics and Tracking. Fingers crossed that the British Weather is kind to us so we have time for some good flocks after the comp!

  9. This got tested pretty well in the UK this weekend and was fantastic! 3.5m exit point from a skyvan at 120knts and you really want to be flying in the right direction back to the DZ! (We do occasionally have the odd bit of cloud over here) Thanks Luke
  10. Hey Jarno and FLB team, thanks for organising a great event and spending so much time and effort coaching us newbies. We're really glad we came along, the DZ team were fantastic and the atmosphere really friendly and fun.
