These are the fellows who founded the United Freeflyers of Utti. Now these guys are keen on sequentials, windtunnels, buildings, antennas, spans and earth. Currently their competition days are over (but you never know, they might return!).
Juha and Juhis are active instructors (IAD, Static line, AFF) in their home clubs while Markus is mainly focusing on BASE-jumping.
The Crew also produced The Fly Free video saga (VOL. I, II and III) with the earlier members of the team. The Fly Free vol. I was shown by Finnish National TV´s HOTSPORT -program.
