About

All competitors wear a pressurized suit specially designed to increase their glide during free-fall. This increases their time in the air as well as the distance they cover during a skydive.

There are two ways to compete in Wingsuit Flying: the Performance event and the Acrobatic event. 

Performance Event:

Each competitor has three jumps in each task for a total of 9 jumps. 

Time: goal is to stay in the competition window for the longest amount of time.

Current World Record: 2021 Alexey Galda, 101.9 secs (1.7 min).

Distance: fly as far as possible in a horizontal line across the ground.

Speed: Fly as fast as possible while in the competition window. 

Current World Record: 2021 Chris Geiler, 326.8km/hr (202.6 mph).

Competition Window: 1,000m  measured vertically. Competitors enter the competition window at 2500m and exit the window at  1500m (4921ft).

Acrobatic Event:

A team consists of two performers and one videographer. The performers have a set of maneuvers they must do together on each jump. Once they leave the plane, they have 7,500 vertical feet to complete the required maneuvers. 

Four of the seven competition jumps are made up of these required maneuvers. These are the compulsory rounds. 

Three of the seven competition jumps are pre-planned routines that are scored on style, plan and camera work. Judges also give points based on technical work and presentation. 

Exit Altitude: between 3810m (max) and 3558m (min).
