Wingsuit Bigways are large flocking groups in which each flyer is required to arrive at and fly in a pre-agreed location and quadrant.

 

For large groups this can require multiple planes to fly in formation and the jumpers inside to exit collect together.

 

For very large groups, the planes may be required to climb to a higher altitude to give jumpers more time to attempt to come together. For anything above 15,000ft jumpers are required to use oxygen tanks in the plane in order to avoid hypoxia (oxygen deprivation). Hypoxia can cause a lack of coordination and confusion.

 

At break-off some organisers will implement tracking groups in order to break the formation in stages and give more opportunity for jumpers to open their parachute in an open space,
