Aerials

by admin

Aerials is the term for freefall-maneuvers, done during a BASE jump. This can include rotations round all three axes of the body, in comparison to the “standard” belly-to-earth-jumping. Aerials, such as flips, turns or combinations of both are becoming more and more common in the BASE world. They carry a certain amount of risk, because a bad body position at deployment is one of the major influences for a probable offheading opening. And this can cause problems.

Proper preparation and proper training is absolutely neccessary when doing aerials.

A very good first look at the complexity of Aerials can be read at Dwain Weston's article on aerials.
