Sebastian "Basti" Wulsch
Instructor

This is Basti. He is part of the skydiving community since 2009. In 2012, he took part in the German nationals with only 350 jumps but managed to become third in the rookie class in freefly.

Since then, he did not only do more than 2000 jumps but he also became German national champion in the intermediate class in freefly in 2016. Freefly is his favorite discipline and head up is his favorite flying position.

So it is not surprising that he was part of the European Head Up Record and also participated in the first German Head Up Record.
He loves to teach you how to fly and make you progress in the air. Let´s fly and make head up great again.

And the best part: he is is the most patient coach you could imagine and he can also coach you in various languages.

Lukas is not only a passionate flyer, he is also interested in any kinds of outdoor sports like skiing, climbing and hiking. Plus, he has a thing for funny socks. So if you are looking for a cool instructor, Lukas is there for you.

Marc Wegner
Instructor/Events

Every team needs a nerd and Marc is ... NOT (but he desperately believes he is, so please don't tell him). We love him dearly, he is the CONSCIOUSNESS of our team :).

When he is not flying with our first timers or not coaching our pro-flyers, he ensures that all IT-related things are working properly. And he makes sure that the coffee machine has always something to do. Marc is always available to answer your questions about tunnel flying. His six years of experience in skydiving definitely make him a very good source of information about that amazing sport as well. Up to today he is clocking in about ten hours of flying in the tunnel and heaps of first timers on top of that. His most favorite non-flying activity is watching movies in the cinema. And, as a very responsible person, he does it almost every week. And... he loves food. Especially sweets, OMNOMNOM! Marc will introduce you into the flying world always with a smile and a vast portion of fun.

Sebastian Robak
Instructor

Basti loved flying since day one. That’s why it is not surprising that he already went to an airport at the age of 13, started skydiving when he was only 15 and now works in the wind tunnel.

He got his skydiving license when he was 16 and has more than 1500 jumps until today. His biggest passion is freeflying and canopy piloting.
His extraordinary feeling for the air flow makes it easy for him to teach and explain to his students how to fly, no matter if fun flyer or pro flyer.

And what is he up to when he is not flying? He is an exquisite chef, likes to travel with friends or cruise around with his scooter, snowboard or skateboard. Are you keen to fly with Basti? You should now know where to find him.
