Over the last six years Phoenix Fly have worked hard to bring you the best quality wingsuits we can.

Wingsuit featured on the frontpage of Aviation Magazine in Argentina

Juan 'Melon' Mayer writes:
This is the cover of the Aviation Magazine using a wingsuit photo. This is first time that an Aviation Magazine from South America is putting an skydiving photo on the cover and recognizing a wingsuit as a WING.

The guy on the cover is a member of our Argentinian Wingsuit Team ANEMOI.

Congratulations to all the wingsuit flyers from SouthAmerica that have been and are working very hard for that!!!

"Most Dangerous Object in the Office: Wingsuit"



Wired magazine has a short extract from their print magazine on Tony Suits' Apache wingsuit, labelling it as "Most Dangerous Object in the Office". It's lame but also kinda funny.

AOL News covers Wingsuit Bigway 2009


More media are reporting the november event. This time we've got a story from AOL News covering the event, touching on the topics of the IPC/FAI meeting at Lausanne, Switserland, and the $5000 raised for charity during the event.

Read the full article here.

Japanese wingsuiter Shin Ito featured on Japanese TV

JR Rodriguez kindly uploaded this video of a feature on Japanese TV of Japanese wingsuiter Shin Ito as he was participating at the Wingsuit Bigway 2009 at Elsinore; also a section on a high-altitude (34,000ft) jump he did.

The video features all sorts of typical hilarious Japanese voiceovers and "show audience" sounds going "ooh, aaah". It would be cool there were English subs, I'd sure like to know what they are saying. I wonder if they butcher the figures, stats and capabilities of the wingsuit like the English whuffo media do.
