The human flight races, air games, show and competition WHAT ARE THE SPACE GAMES?
Space Games is a world wide broadcasted Skydiving Competition and the longest running FreeFly Competition ever. Olav Zipser created the Games which started in their 1st edition 1997. Goal of the Games is it to research, develop and document the Performance Evolution of Human FreeFlight.
The Space Games are an excellent opportunity to improve you flying skills and to get more into the Art of Human Flight, but it is as well a great opportunity for Athletes to find Sponsors and media attention!
The FreeFly Athletes perform under controlled conditions and at the same time they help to collect important data to research the human flying which is still very important for the future development of the sport.
