    BigWay Fun 2017 - Czech Republic 45ways

    BigWay Beginners - Nethers, Langar & Hib

     

    BWB has been running since Caroline Hughes and Skydive Choreography came up with the concept. We teach the basics in a no blame environment whilst providing testing slots for intermediate and experienced skydivers at the same time. We can also cater for both beginner cameraflyers and load organisers and look to provide a multi-plane jump experience on the Sunday. BWB has run at Nethers, Langar and Hibaldstow in the past.

    Bigway Beginners X

    Objectives:

    • If you’re a beginner and you want to learn about FS bigways in a no blame atmosphere then this event is for you.
    • If you’re at an intermediate level and you want to brush up on the skills you have, this is the event for you. If you want to dust off the winter rust this event is for you.
    • If you’re an experienced skydiver and want to put something back into the sport and help out the newer jumpers learn how you did, this event IS FOR YOU.
    REVIEW: Event capacity: 45-50. Registrations: 68. This event was over-subscribed and a waiting list was run. Approx 20 skydivers attempted their first multi-plane formation. Some of the testimonials are at the bottom of this page.
