Wingsuit The Remarkables

Wingsuiting the Remarkables. Red Bull Chronicles.

Ever since I was a kid I imagined flying parallel with the earth, with arms outstretched, navigating the terrain ahead to fly in harmony with the planet. Today, the wingsuit does just that. Yippeeee.
On a beautiful April day I gather with the Red Bull NZ crew, camera teams & the fab  Heliworks chopper crew in a field directly below the majestic Remarkables Range in Queenstown, NZ. The Remarkables is a craggy, steep range of mountains rising to 7396 feet rows of steep gullies leading down to the flats below.

New Zealand Golf Open Parachute Display

New Zealand Golf Open Parachute Display

I had the pleasure of parachuting into the closing of the NZ Golf Open at The Hills Golf Course in Queenstown on the 31st Jan 2010.
To add to the fun, I was jumping a 3m x 5m NZ Open flag. I had to build & test jump the flag beforehand to test the deployment & flying characteristics, particularly the amount of weight needed on the bottom of the flag to make it fly correctly.

I have been asked by Gavin Wills from Glide Omarama to join his team to perform a display skydive from a sailplane as part of the Warbirds Over Wanaka public Air show this Easter.
Warbirds is New Zealand's premiere Airshow & I'm totally enthused to be a performer at the next one. I look forward to getting together with Gavin & coreographing a routine to mix the exciting aspects of sailplanes & skydiving into a crowd pleasing stunt.
Yeeharrrr
