Alexander Polli, threading the needle!
Tonysuit wingsuits allow skydivers and BASE jumpers to realize the dream of human flight; gliding amongst the clouds, to make flock formations and to swoop along the mountainside.
Tonysuits offer the best flying performance available, allowing pilots to stay in the air for minutes and to fly for miles. Tonysuit pilots have won all the distance and time competitions in recent years and hold the record for the worlds longest BASE jump and worlds longest skydive.
A TonySuit was also the first wingsuit to be LANDED!
Tonysuit is the worlds largest jumpsuit manufacturer. The
company was founded in 1976 by Tony Uragallo and is based in
Zephyrhills, Florida, USA.
Tonysuits has been involved in producing wingsuits since the
early 1990s when it supported the legendary French skydiver
Patrick DeGayardon with suits for his bat man wingsuit.
Inspired by Patrick, Tony produced many of his own prototype
suits and in 2006 launched the Z-Wing range. Find out more
