BASE jumping has a long list of jumpers who are above the rest in the sport. There are people who are gifted aerialists, others who are kick ass trackers and of course there are the wing suit pilots with their breath taking proxy flights.
Klaus is probably one of the best target landers at this time, hitting a perfect zero in almost every round. Some people say if Klaus is taking part at an event you don´t have to ask who the winner is going to be. As an accomplished skydiver, Klaus has practiced this discipline for many years and is therefore at an advantage which he now uses as a BASE jumper. His philosophy is simple. “Know your canopy, judge the target from high up and then fly your approach, meaning stay above the target and sink the canopy in giving or taking away speed.”
Probably one of the most advanced wing suit pilots of our days, Robbie is also the manufacturer of the phoenix fly wing suits. As a test pilot of his own gear he is doing all the developing for his company and thus has managed to get a huge amount of experience flying those rockets. Wether its speed or distance, Robbie can max out his flight or time it to perfection to get the maximum speed out of a flight; a big contender for the wing suit discipline and in the running for the overall win since in his earlier career he has also won some accuracy comps!
They are also known as the "Norgie Twins" because very rarely you see one jump without the other.They are both huge contenders in the wing suit events. Their proxy flights are legendary and they have been featured on many a program on wing suit flying. Constantly looking for new stuff to try, opening new exits and including acrobacy moves into their wingsuit flying, they are probably the greatest pioneers in wing suiting in the recent years. The speed discipline favors their style of flying but we have also seen them tracking recently and practicing their aerial skills.
Chris "Douggs" McDouggal
A legend of his own merrit, Douggs is one of the best know BASE jumpers to date. Leading Team BASE Dreams and travelling the globe looking for the next exit point, he earned his spores as instructor at Kjerag where he also recorded some of his styling BASE videos. Douggs is an overall talent, especially for target landing and acrobacy plus he is venturing into Wing Suit flying, so we can expect to see a lot more from him in the near future.
