Why are you ﬂying ?
No deep philosophy behind it. We just love to fly! We don’t ski much and we don’t play football, so we fly in the windtunnel instead. If you get the opportunity to compete on a high level in a sport like this, you better take it!
What fascinates you about ﬂying/indoor skydiving?
Its the best job in the world!
