Wingsuit Regulations

Each country has difference rules for wingsuit flying. Phoenix-Fly demands a minimum of current 200 freefall skydives before using our wingsuit products, and the required wingsuit experience level listed for each suit in our line-up. 

Countries not adhering to these rules are thus not listed, and 200 freefall skydives are to be used as a worldwide standard for all Phoenix-Fly products.

Note that on top of local rules, skydives are always bound to the rules of their own organisation as well as the rules for the product they are using. Not sticking to these rules can lead to invalidation of liability insurance for the student.

Some of countries do allow foreign jumpers to jump under their own rules, even when they don't meet the local (higher experience) criterea. Its advisable to bring a copy of your own organisation rules when visiting a dropzone that has a higher experience limit for wingsuit flying.

To assist in figuring out local regulations, here is a brief overview of rules in various countries. To add to this list, please send an email to jarno@phoenix-fly.com
