Fragment

Wingsuit flying has been a dream, passion and driving force in my hobby, work and personal life for over 18 years. Through this sport, I’ve met some of the most amazing people, traveled to the most remote and exotic locations and it has shaped my life in ways I could not have imagined when I first put on a wingsuit back in 2003. With time, that same passion has led to the privilege of teaching, and being able to introduce many others to the wonderful experience of human flight.

Compared to other skydiving disciplines, wingsuit flying has had very little literature available. The information I did get was often more of a philosophical nature, where I personally wanted more direct technical information on how to execute a certain move or change in speed or angle. I wanted to become a better wingsuit pilot, as well as being able to spread information among others to raise the overall level of skill and help the discipline to grow. Looking where the sport today is at, it’s come a long way, but also still has such an amazing road of possibilities and growth ahead.

Years of wingsuit skydiving and basejumping together with many hours of wingsuit tunnel flying and coaching, made me feel like I had reached a level of understanding where it made sense to try and commit it all to paper, and hopefully contribute in a positive way to the overall knowledge and safety within the discipline. The following book was distilled from a total of 5000 wingsuit flights from airplanes and mountains, and more than 1000 hours wingsuit tunnel flying and coaching.

My teammate and flying partner Jenna Gygi has played an essential role in developing, refining and perfecting the various techniques
described. Flying and training together, Jenna has provided me with an ever shifting finish line with regards to goals in the sport, fueled by an equally passionate and never ending hunger for knowledge. Her enthusiasm and constant support has been a big drive and motivation in the writing process.

This book is not meant as a beginners manual to learn wingsuit flying completely on your own, but aims to increase general knowledge and safety to improve flying technique at all levels of proficiency. All information is presented without influence or mention of brands or sponsors, purely based on freefall control through aerodynamics, explained in simple terms using understandable and clear language. ×
