Burning Sky - A Burning Man Camp Of Skydivers
Burning Sky is a collective of skydivers who bring aerial art to the unique venue of Burning Man. We also offer the public an unforgettable opportunity to view Black Rock City from the air in order to share our timeless love of the heavens with the Burning Man community.
Any skydiver is welcome to participate. The idea behind Burning Sky, like Burning Man itself, is difficult to sum up in a sound bite. It's like explaining what skydiving is like to someone who has never jumped. "Radical Self Expression" is what Larry Harvey, credited founder of Burning Man, uses to describe the event. The skydiving members of Burning Sky completely appreciate that.
Our camp started with about 10 skydivers in 1999, and has grown to 100 skydiving participants in 2011. We are a highly experienced group of skydivers. Our continuing mission is to extend the art and ethos of Burning Man off the playa into the vertical dimension, coloring the sky in coordinated jumps using banners, smoke, and magnesium flares.
The Burning Sky website is dedicated to those who are planning on going to Burning Man and want to participate in bringing our aerial view and excitement to this unique event. Look around the site to get an idea of what we are planning. Please visit the Burning Man Skydiver Community Forum to stay updated with our activities.
