Ski & Speedfly Kleine Ankogel, 3096 m

Flight #34: Kleine Ankogel (3096 m) is a secondary summit of the bigger brother. Wind was blowing over 60km/h thus preventing a start from the summit itself, but made for a great powder descent. After a while, approximately 500 m lower, the wind was gone. And it was time for some serious fun! This was my first flight on custom made Spitfire Light for my Alaska Expedition in April. Glider is super light and packable, fast as a rocket and rock solid! Check the design – a patriotic design same as national flag 🙂

Polet #34: Polet s tritisočaka Mali Ankogel (3096 m) je bil čisti loto! Ampak z zadetkom v polno. Na vrhu je pihalo preko 60 km/h severnega vetra, zato polet ni bil mogoč. Tako sem užival v pršiču kakšnih 500 m, ko je veter popolnoma izginil in tako sem lahko opravil svoj 1. polet na novem, po naročilu narejenem padalu za Aljasko s posebno lahkih in stisljivih materialov! Naročil sem ga v patritoskih barvah slovenske zastave:) Super dan, super družba – hvala Maruši in Marku!

Icarus Projet

Icarus’ flight was often alluded to by Greek poets in passing, but the story was told briefly in Pseudo-Apollodorus. In the literature of ancient Rome, the myth was of interest to Augustan writers. Hyginus narrates it in Fabula 40, beginning with the bovine love affair of Pasiphaë, daughter of the Sun, resulting in the birth of the Minotaur. Ovid narrates the story of Icarus at some length in the Metamorphoses (viii.183–235), and refers to it elsewhere.

Wingsuit flying is the sport of flying the human body through the air using a special jumpsuit, called a wingsuit, which adds surface area to the human body to enable a significant increase in lift. Modern wingsuits, first developed in the late 1990s, create the surface area with fabric between the legs and under the arms. A wingsuit may be referred to as a birdman suit, flying squirrel suit or bat suit.
