Interesting Facts
Lucas started skydiving in 1997 and soon fell in love with freefly. Following his passion, in 1999 he travelled to Empuria Brava, Spain to train under the guidance of the Babylon Freefly Team. Subsquently he explored the USA and went on to become the first Australian to achieve a freefly licence after passing the Atmosphere Dolphin Test with Olav Zipser. After enjoying a six year break from skydiving between 2000 and 2006, Lucas rediscovered his love of freefall in his current discipline of choice, VFS. In addition to achieving successful state and national level competition results, he has also participated in two Australian vertical formation record jumps to date - a 25-way and a 33-way.
