  • New achievements, the third tunnel in the family and the hundreds of awarded minutes – the 2018-year’s results from FlyStation

New achievements, the third tunnel in the family and the hundreds of awarded minutes – the 2018-year’s results from FlyStation

The year 2018 was full of events for FlyStation St. Petersburg. It was challenging and very interesting. At the end of December we traditionally tell you about the most important events of the year - the year’s results of FlyStation.

1. The mega championship
In 2018 we held the Russian Indoor Skydiving Championships in our wind tunnel. It was pretty BIG, however you look at it! It included a record number of participants – 224 athletes competing in 16 disciplines and categories. Our wind tunnel has gone wild for a week. But the atmosphere was so nice, that nobody wanted the championship to come to an end. The second record is that the number of views in social media was extraordinary high! Three million people has watched our livestream over three days. Nobody had expected such result.

2. The best in Europe
Vertical FlyStation team got a gold medal at the European Indoor Skydiving Championships and was the best in VFS 4-way Open. Our athletes performed better and better from round to round, and in the last one they did 54 points and set a new European record. The previous record counted on 51 points. Feels good to be on top of the game!

 

3. The birth of a supernova
This year we got a new member to our FlyStation family. A brand-new wind tunnel has opened in Munich. Its diameter is 4,5 meters, the airflow speed is up to 350 kilometers per hour. Many star athletes and champions attended the opening ceremony - Yohann Aby, Andrzej Soltyk, Raphael Coudray, Filip Crnjakovic, Leo Volkov. FlyStation Munich wind tunnel now successfully operates in Germany.

4. A new challenge for staff
The management of FlyStation introduced a new standard in FlyStation – the flying skills assessment test. All the instructors had to pass a test in the compulsory elements of the Freestyle and D2W disciplines. FlyStation is going to hold such assessments at least once a year. This new practice intends to raise the level of individual flying and professionalism of coaching and increase participation in the sport.

5. The quality excellence
In 2018 FlyStation got TripAdvisor certificate of excellence. It is the third time the largest travel website has awarded our wind tunnel with such a high score. This certificate is appreciated all over the world. It cannot be bought or negotiated – the only way to get it is to earn it by getting honest customers reviews. We are proud to deliver a high-quality customer experience to our guests.

6. Learning to fly every day
There were about fifty different camps at FlyStation St. Petersburg in 2018. The geography of proflyers, who has come for flying, training and learning is impressive. We had flyers coming from all Europe, most countries of South America, USA, Canada, Australia, Japan, South Korea and Middle East. And of course, people from all over Russia. We are happy to see new faces in the sport, meet old friends again and again and see the flyers of all ages and nationalities pursuing their goals in competitive and fun flying. We love you!

7.  Gift time!
We have drawn 179 tunnel minutes or 3 hours (well, 1 minute short of three hours) of tunnel time in our social media raffles and contests this year. We gave away a lot of other prizes and gifts too – tickets to concert and theatre shows, sports equipment, SPA certificates, sweets and other exciting things from our partners.
We have supported skydiving events and special cases. We are proud to make our customers and followers happy.
