“I have been wingsuiting since 2003 and I love helping up and coming wingsuiters learn the basics of flight and see the smiles on their faces with the first docs and formations. My last equinox was in 2000 and I cant wait to come back. Macca and Ally were so good to myself and wildman back in the day when we were running amok and I look forward to repaying their awesomeness.”

Sponsors & event supporters – Equinox 2020


Was anxious-as coming in to start my AFF course, but these guys truly put me at ease. Felt more like joining a members club than just buying a commercial course. Great atmosphere - encouraging staff - awesome experience.....Now I just gotta get back and complete the course!
