Flying Styles

Poetry and Power in Motion.

There are many ways to move throughout the air. Flyers may choose to compete in a style that requires more speed, more precision, or more creativity.

Freestyle Flying

Considered to be the most artistic styles, Freestyle is one of the most visually pleasing forms of flying.

Individual competitors use their imagination and creativity to design and perfect custom routines that are scored by judges. Freestyle is a lot like figure skating, freestyle skiing, or gymnastics.

Routines are typically 90 seconds long, accompanied by music, and consist of stylistic movements meant to WOW the crowd and judges.


Dynamic Flying

Dynamic combines speed, precision, and creativity in an exciting and engaging format for flyers and spectators alike.

This style of flying is like follow-the-leader. A team made up of either two or four flyers follow one another as they fly throughout the wind in the tunnel. Fastest time wins in dynamic flying.

Since this is a race against the clock, it requires teams to be as fast and precise as possible since mistakes are added to their final time.


Formation Skydiving (FS)

This is a style of flying that challenges flyers to perform various movements together.

Teammates fly together in the center of the wind tunnel and accumulate points by completing formations in a set order determined at the beginning of each round.

These formations, which have names, are created when teammates link themselves together by holding hands, arms, legs, and feet to form different shapes.
