World Wingsuit Championships

..........





First held in the autumn of 2012, the championships rapidly gained a foothold as one of the most important dates in the wingsuit calendar. Conducted annually and run by the World Wingsuit League organisation in partnership with the Tianmen Mountain cable car company and Red Bull it has always taken place in the majestic settings of the Tianmen mountains in Hunan province, China. The race has and continues to attract the very best talent from the world of wingsuit BASE to compete against one another in evolving formats that test the pilot's skills to their limits. Having started with a race against the clock the event has morphed through head to head racing and onto slalom and target flying mirroring the evolution of wingsuit flying itself which, with the advent of greater technique through the advancement in wingsuit technology, continues to progress dynamically. The event continues to offer a compelling visual spectacle and has attracted worldwide media attention throughout its existence.
