ProBASE Scoring and rules

Each discipline has its own criteria; however the point system is the same for all competitions. Whether you are good at aerials, tracking, target landing or wing suit flying, you always got a chance to win the overall competition.

Each competition will be scored with the same amount of points for the rank you achieved.

Thus the best overall BASE jumper will win the world cup and crown himself PROBASE World Champion. For scoring of each discipline please refer to individual point system.

Scoring and Rules ProBASE Wingsuit Race:

4 timed qualification rounds for all competitors, fastest 16 overall times will advance to semi finals

fastest 16 will compete in timed semi final round, times will determine pairing for final round, times from quali rounds will be omitted, in case 2 pilots have the same time, the faster overall time reached in the qualification rounds will determine which pilot advances into the final.

fastest 8 will compete in final round in elimination mode

in case the competition cannot be completed for whatever reason, the accumulated result up until the last fully completed round will count as the final result.

i.e. The competition has to be suspended because of bad weather during the 3rd qualification round and is later cancelled. In this case the results from round one and two  will be added and the 3 fastest overall times from those 2 rounds will win the medals. Also, the 8 fastest times from  those 2 rounds will be awarded the World Cup points.

Canopy time

The minimum canopy time after opening is 25 seconds, measured from when the PC leaves the pilot´s hand to when the first part of the body touches the ground. If the canopy time is below 25 seconds, the pilot will be disqualified. 

Lane Invasion

A pilot who invades the lane of his race partner or crosses the imaginary line drawn between the 2 pilots will be disqulaified even if he doesn´t inhibit the other pilot.

What is Base jumping ?

BASE jumping is the activity of parachuting from a fixed object as opposed to skydiving, which is parachuting from an aircraft. Fixed objects can be buildings, antennas, smoke stacks, bridges, power towers, cliffs, cable cars, dams or any other object high enough to jump from.

The acronym B.A.S.E was coined by Carl Boenish and stands for Building, Antenna, Span, Earth which are the 4 most popular objects BASE jumpers practice their sport from

Necessities for an event

In order to set up a BASE jumping event or competition we need first of all an object. The object needs to be adequate for its purpose and needs to be inspected for safety features. The object should have a minimum height of 100 meters and at least one sheer face. There can be no protruding obstacles anywhere near the face or in the area directly below it.

The object also needs to have a landing area that is big enough to safely land a parachute and it needs to have an open area around it so the jumpers can approach the landing zone without protruding obstacles such as tress, lamp posts, traffic lights etc. Furthermore there should be an area for spectators that can be secured and separated from the landing zone and an area to place stands for sponsors, and vendors. An additional zone to mount further installments can be located nearby.
