Up Coming Events March 2009 Wingsuit Boogie

A typical skydiver’s terminal velocity in belly to earth orientation ranges from 110 to 140 mph (180 to 225 km/h). A wingsuit can reduce these speeds dramatically. An instantaneous velocity of 25 mph or 40 km/h has been recorded, but 60 mph (95 km/h) is more typical.

The suit also enables the wearer to travel longer distances horizontally; glide ratios of 2.5:1 are commonplace.

Records

On July 24, 2008, Australian doctor Glenn Singleman jumped from 37,000 feet over central Australia setting a world record for highest wingsuit jump.

Dare devil Swiss Wingsuit flyer Ueli Geoenaghatz raced a passenger plane from mainland Ireland, Co Galway to the Aran Islands jumping from 5,000 metres. The 17.6 km journey which normally takes the Aer Arran passenger plane 7 mins travelling at an average sped of 130mph was beaten by Ueli in a wingsuit as he reached speeds of over 200kmph.

Nils Predstrup           Funkflyz Team

Artistic bodyfly is an idea shared by many freeflyers worldwide.
After freestyle flying in competitions for 7 years, I’m taking my flying one step further.
I’m using the freedom of movement in the sky to create a stage of expression.
The freedom of movement in the sky and the ability to completely surrender to gravity is so power full and hold a huge potential that is just waiting for us to go and explore.
My passion is to learn, document and communicate this freedom in an expressive form of flying dance art – I like to call Artistic bodyfly.
My idea is to show a place where we can live our dreams, a place where people can fly. I think inspiration is very important in all human lives. I wish to inspire people thru
artistic bodyflying.
