Welcome to wingsuitcompetition.com
An exciting Artistic Wingsuit Competition that pitches teams from all over the world against each other in an aireal display of flying skills, showcasing their best to impress the judges. The competition is centered around 2 way teams with a camera flyer, a formula bearing some resemblance to freefly competitions.
In this competition format there are five rounds of compulsory figures, with two figures per round randomly drawn from a dive-pool with a series of loops, rolls, transitions and docks. The last round is a free round where teams are invited to go impress the judges and fellow wingsuit pilots with creativity and flying skills.
Teams not only score points for the number of figures shown, but also get a score for the camera work and flying style. The flying style is a crucial element in these type of wingsuit competitions, as it's what forces teams to fly their best, and not resort to normal freefall, while wearing a wingsuit. Style points are given for body position, smoothness of flying, controlled docks and forward flying speed.
Based on an idea by Costyn van Dongen and Jarno Cordia, the competition was organised for the first time in 2008 at Skydive Spa in Belgium. 8 teams of international flyers entered and made the competition to a great success. In 2009 and 2010 the competition was organized again. This time in Terni, Italy. 2011 has Gap, France on the agenda for the 4th edition.
Next to the international editions, several countries such as Australia and Argentine have adopted the same rules and competition format, and have organized National editions. Some of those with a reduced divepool to allow flyers of all skill levels to participate.
