Day 2 - Performance Wingsuit Flying commences

Friday, 4th November 2017

Early start this morning for the Performance competitors (and judges) with a 7.00 am briefing prior to the start of their competition.  There was then the process of tagging the suits and registering the flysights.  We now wait for the clouds to clear.

Meanwhile the Acrobatic Wingsuit Flights from yesterday are now available on the IPC YouTube Video Channel
