There are many approaches for training to be a better wingsuit pilot.

Wingsuit Flight Skills

  • demonstrate ability to move forward and (relative) backward (controlled speed up, slow down)
  • demonstrate ability to side slide
  • demonstrate ability to go up and down (relative)
  • barrel rolls (belly to belly) while maintaining heading (right and left)
  • front-loops (belly to belly) while maintaining heading
  • back-loops (belly to belly) while maintaining heading
  • demonstrate ability to float/hang (slow flight)
  • demonstrate ability to do a controlled acceleration towards another person or group
  • demonstrate ability to do a controlled hard (relative) stop
  • demonstrate ability to dive, flare and use momentum to generate forward speed and stay level
  • demonstrate a hard dive and aborting flare (quickly bleeding of speed)
  • stay relative to another wingsuiter in both up/down/forward/backward movements
  • docking with other wingsuit pilot (multiple docks/releases in a jump)
  • exit unstable and recover quickly, locate and find heading again (using sun as a reference)
  • perform consistent, fast and stable group exits
  • follow a formation in a spectator slot, staying on level and keeping the same heading
  • quick recovery and heading correction after instability in exit
  • fly relative to another wingsuit pilot, and briefly touch the hand (set up for a dock)
  • fly a controlled hand-dock for a duration of 3 seconds, without tension on the grip
  • fly a controlled hand-dock for a duration of 10 seconds, without tension on the grip
  • during flight, half a barrelroll to backfly, maintaining heading
  • backfly, half a barrelroll to belly, maintaining heading
  • backfly for a full jump at a constant fallrate
  • maintain heading and navigate while backflying using sun or other external reference
  • fly vertically stacked above another wingsuiter, with correct forward spacing
  • approach a (vertically stacked) slot with correct awareness of burbles
  • pass over another jumper with correct awareness/avoiding of the burble (staying ahead)
  • demonstrate full control over up/down level and directional control while backflying
  • make a hand dock on a static base, while backflying
  • fly a hand dock for 10 seconds while backflying
  • backfly underneath the base, and follow the base through a slow 90 degree turn staying in slot
  • backfly and perform a full barrelroll back into backfly
  • from belly, 1,5 barrelroll into backfly, while maintaining heading
  • 360 degree turn on the back, ending up on the same heading
