Big suit flying
Want to fly with your Big Suit (Strix, Freak or similar) in the tunnel?
With us you can learn the basics, improve your skills, or train acro in a team!
We’re thrilled to offer flying at higher glide ratios (GR). Taking our Variable Angle System into use, it’s now possible to fly at GR’s up to 2.7. This opens up our tunnel to flying bigger wingsuits. You can find details on the range of suits that we allow in the tunnel here.
Thanks to our upgraded (October 2019) Variable Angle System, we’re now able to offer alternate GR’s most days if you plan it together with us some time ahead of your visit.
What are the requirements?:
- Pass the start-up training and have passed Certification as Indoor Wingsuit Pilot
- Progress your skills with normal intermediate training suit to a level where you have started training transitions (all this done at GR 1.6)
- Conduct our ”Big Suit preparatory training” (10–20 min) at GR 1.6 and 2.0. This training focuses on flying, landing and ground handling techniques specifically adapted to suits with more surface and higher pressure.
- Finally, you need to bring your private wingsuit (check out the ”Suitability Matrix” or contact us with your suit related questions).
- All flying with a Big Suit has to be assisted by a Big Suit certified in-house Flight Master; coaching fee is added to all big suit flying time.
From Zero to Big Suit Hero, how much time do I need?
If you visit us for the first time with the specific goal to fly your big suit, it’s not easy to predict how much time you’ll have to spend with an intermediate suit at GR 1.6 before you get the go for Big Suit.
Of course we can’t give any guarantees, but from our experience we suggest that with booking at least 150 min of flying, spread out over three–four days, you’ll be able to fly your personal big suit.
