The Name: FlyByWire

Because we get heaps of questions where our name is coming from we now present all the reasons, stories and the history!


First there were three mates which had the idea to start a wingsuit skyflying aerobatic team. so the next step was of course the long way to find a NAME. so we asked around for input, and the final result were that flybywire [flaɪbaɪˈwaɪɹ] sounds cool and has something todo with air, planes and so on. (check Wikipedia for that).

A fly-by-wire (FBW) system replaces manual control of the aircraft with an electronic interface. The movements of flight controls are converted to electronic signals transmitted by wires (hence the fly-by-wire term)

so thats the offical stuff you can find with that name, for us the name stands for unbelivable stunning performance like were controlled by invisible wires 🙂
