Babylon’s new Vision...Redefining our future.

One of our successes has been the introduction of a vital and dramatic schedule of events with an edge, aimed at all levels, designed to enlighten and entertain as well as train and inform. The Rebirth of Toys & Games events promise elements of an old style boogie fun vibe fused with a modern "Zen" approach to flying and skydiving community.

For individuals seeking to learn or improve their Freefly skills we provide One on One Coaching, for more experienced teams or individuals, Team Training and Big Way Workshops allow a rapid and cost effective way of improving awareness and skills in a safe environment.

Babylon also provides Wind Tunnel Coaching, which allow for rapid progression in a confined space, translating to maximum spacial awareness when in the air.
