2017 is the year that things will start to change.
It's not going to happen overnight but I can say with confidence that for the first time, there will be a clear and objective-based learning process for people that are interested in Wingsuiting. It's going to be awesome!
I'm part of a small group of World-Class Wingsuit Pilots and B.A.S.E jumpers that are working together to make the Educational Revolution a reality and then we're going to give you a way to prove that you're a part of it..
Just like any experience-based activity, Skydiving, Wingsuiting and B.A.S.E jumping have so far relied on an honesty system and honestly, the system hasn't worked. Log books are too easy to fudge and there's people out there that literally "fake it 'til they make it", all the while putting other people's lives in jeopardy.
For these reasons I'm stoked to announce my partnership with Sigma.
Sigma is an online database of merits you have earned from authorized Organizations and big news for 2017 is that the U.S.P.A (Unites States Parachute Associaton) and Next Level Wingsuit and B.A.S.E Education have signed up to use Sigma's online database for all qualifications they offer. This means there is now a rock-solid, authentic way for everyone to see what kind of training you have done and who you did it with. Guess what that means.. No more faking it!
Ciao for now,
