    Meet Skye Scheepens: Real Estate Rep and Manager by weekday - Wingsuit / AFF instructor / International Bigway Competitor by weekend!

    "Having travelled to the US to be a part of the Aussie Bigway Record in 2015, this was an incredible experience, and the record was set at 117 skydivers from 18,000feet. This relies on 117 people being in exactly the right place, at the right time and all under 60 seconds. 117 canopies in the air is a terrifying yet beautiful experience, and when they all open at the same time, its like an awesome thunder sound in the air when you hear it from the ground."
