The art of flying one’s body inside a wingsuit. This discipline includes several sub categories, including: big way formations, XRW, wingsuit flocking, and B.A.S.E. wingsuiting.

Everyone who has made a Skydive agrees, there is nothing that compares to that first jump. You take the class, sit through the video and watch lots of people jump before you get in the plane. But even with the training and preparation, your first skydive is still the ultimate “leap of faith”. You tried [...]


Many people who don’t jump have a funny, stereotype impression of skydivers. Some think we are a subculture of young, adrenalin junkies with a disregard for life who enjoy pushing the limits on every jump. Many of the movies that involve skydiving have not only backed that impression up, but have taken it a step [...]
