This is the end!

Thank you all for reading wingsuitnews the last 2,5 years! What started as a fun
‘for the love of the sport’ project, grew and grew into a website that draws close
to 400 unique visitors per day, and has seen a total of over 100.0000 visits.

Back in 2009 wingsuitnews.com saw one or two updates a week with 2 or 3 videos posted.
These days there are close to 20 or sometimes more new videos daily, making maintaining the website
close to a fulltime job. With all the cool subscription features on Vimeo, Youtube
and the massive sharing on facebook wingsuitnews.com is growing a bit out of style.
Hence the decision to call it a day!

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

Apache Wingsuit Burble Opening

Canopy opening with Apache wingsuit in full flight. Note the D bag coming out straight then canopy inflation in burble, resulting in 8 line twists.

I am going to study openings in different positions so we can work out the very best way to pitch with these large wingsuits.
