Paratenting at the New Zealand International Airshow 2013

The NZ International Airshow organiser asked me to come up with a stunt for the show. What could be more fun than doing a static line jump with the Red Bull Wigwam event tent, from a helicopter?
By wearing two harnesses, I could jump the tent, fly it for 30 seconds, release it, fall away & still have my full skydive rig to land with my normal, square parachute.

What fun to get in the heli, climb away to 2000' overhead where I throw a drifter (a roll of newspaper with a 10' tail of crepe paper) to assess wind drift. Important when jumping a tent.

I've been invited to attend the Red Bull Ski Safari in Niseko, Japan along with a group of Australian Friends of Red Bull.
I can't wait to ride my Skwall on Japanese powder, I've heard such good stories about the quality of the snow.
This will be my first international ski trip.
Brilliant

AIRBORNE. Back Country Basejump Multi Sport Mission

I'm on an aerial hunt for new cliffs to jump in the Southern Lakes region, using the recently built microlight to search for these potential sites.
This Tuesday I flew a recce among the valleys & alps, west of Lake Wanaka. One reasonable cliff has stood out so far, nestled in a high, snow covered, alpine valley, adjoining the Wilkin River.
That's why I built a plane, for back country adventure.
Further potential sites were spotted today. The hunt is on.

I've been talking with buddy Miles Daisher about another return trip to the amazing base boogie at the KL Tower in Malaysia. Sounds like some of the other Red Bull Airforce from the USA are keen too. I hope so. This really is a blast & a great place to work on tricks.
