Links & Notes:

Freeflying is a skydiving discipline which began circa 1994 by a group of skydivers who wanted to experiment with non-traditional forms of flight.

Freeflying is an expansion of skydiving which includes the traditional belly-to-earth positions, but extends into vertical flight where the flyer is in an upright position (falling feet first) or in an inverted position (falling head first). These positions increase freefall speeds and make new types of formations and routines possible. (wikipedia)
