Formation Skydiving (Relative Work) Coaching
Formation skydiving is the art of building formations in free-fall with multiple people gripping each others’ limbs or specially built “grippers” on their jumpsuits.
Freeflying is an expansion of skydiving which includes the traditional belly-to-earth positions, but extends into vertical flight where the flyer is in an upright position (falling feet first) or in an inverted position (falling head first). These positions increase freefall speeds and make new types of formations and routines possible.

Wing suit flying is the sport of flying the human body through the air using a special jumpsuit, called a wing suit, which adds surface area to the human body to create lift. The wing suit creates the surface area with fabric between the legs and under the arms. A wing suit may be referred to as a birdman suit or squirrel suit. A wing suit flight ends with a parachute opening after a circuit was flown around the landing zone. A wing suit enables the pilot or flier to extend his free fall time from roughly 45 sec on a normal skydive to 2min.
