Flying when all participants are of similar size and weight...quite easy! Large differences in build allow for rather unusual stunts! Some flying can get a little on the wild side.
At 66% power of INDOOR SKYDIVING PRAGUE wind tunnel, extreme athlete Rosina (flying profile of cca 50 kg, 162cm tall) and aircraft engineer Shane (flying profil over 90 kg, 190cm tall) put together some unusual combinations! "We would like to demonstrate, that there is no room for excuses about what you can and can't fly, and you definitely don't need to wear a huge funny looking lead belt to keep up with your friends" told us both flyers!

FREESTYLE COMPASS STAND & BACK FLYING...Why not?
HEAD DOWN & BELLY on the same speed? Certainly!
You might be thinking, "He is so heavy and she is so light, THAT'S EASY, anyone can fly a combination like that." Okay, let's try it with ROLES REVERSED... again with NO WEIGHT BELT!
And... it works! MAGIC!?! Or just BASIC AERODYNAMICS... ? At your descretion... let's call it MAGIC AERODYNAMICS ;)
Creativity in flying is part of the fun, and dreaming up scenarios to accommodate different builds and experience levels can produce formations not often seen. Don't let anyone tell you what can't be done and just fly it!
E66 TIP FOR YOUR NEXT FLIGHT: SURF YOUR FRIEND! ;)
