The Human Carrot
A funny wingsuit BASE story by Douggs with a serious message...
During your Back Flying progression, you will also learn how to enter and exit the flight chamber while remaining in the Back Fly position. Being able to control yourself throughout the entire entrance and exit process will be key to learn more advanced entrances and exits, and especially when competing in 2 way Vertical Formation (VFS) competitions requiring the use of this skill.
The main objective is to be able to safely and successfully 'Enter' and then, once the flight session has concluded, 'Exit' the wind tunnel straight in to the neutral Back Flying body position with minimal hands-on assistance from the tunnel Instructor.
It is important that the speed of your entrances and exits are slow throughout so that you can maintain control at all times.
