“Time to stop falling and start flying” just about sums Birdman up. This is as close as you’re ever likely to get to unaided human flight in 3 dimensions. You can circle clouds instead of falling “down the tube”; gravity’s energy is converted into forward speed, in some cases in excess of 100 km/h. You can begin your preparations after as few as 150 skydives but given the nature of Birdman flight there are a few things we should mention before you start stretching your wings.

Previous experience for Birdman?

It’s recommended that a skydiver has had at least 150 freefall jumps in the past 18 months before receiving the FFC (first flight course) from a BMI (Birdman Instructor). The first flight should be one-on-one with a BMI. Skydivers with 500+ current freefall jumps may fly solo on their first flight after undertaking the ground school with a BMI.
