Each year we have dedicated a page in memory of the founder of Speed-Flying.com: Mathias Roten. 9 years on, as you take to the air, we ask you to remember Mathias and what he has done for our sport. He was highly skilled and extremely passionate for the growth of the sport of Speed Flying.
When you take to the skies, I'm sure you, as we do, will feel his presence around you.
New to Speed-Flying? Please take a look at our introduction to Speed-Flying to familiarize yourself with the sport. Speed-Flying is an extreme sport. There are many risks associated with the sport, which is why unfortunately over the past few years there have also been a number of serious injuries and fatalities. Please take a moment to reflect on those that have passed, and keep them in mind before you take to the skies. We can't urge enough that new Speed Flyers take training lessons and instruction before taking to the air.
Fly save, have fun, and here's to a great Speed-Flying year in 2017.
