"We were a part of this tiny little group of people that, for lack of a better word, 'invented' freeflying," recalls Jon DeVore in the video above. "[We were] with others, for sure, but we were part of that first core wave."

It's a trip down memory lane with the Red Bull Air Force in episode six of Miles Above, the series on the life and times of the Red Bull Air Force. This core crew was an integral part of creating the new style of skydiving called 'freeflying'.

"Charles Bryan is one of the guys that started not only the Red Bull Air Force, but the whole freefly movement," says Mike Swanson. "He was part of the group that first started really training [for] the discipline."

"He's one of the most natural [athletes] out there," continues DeVore. "No better person to have started the crazy world we live in now!"

Watch the video above to learn more about the new school of skydiving, from the world's premier skydive team, the Red Bull Air Force. Now you'll really understand what it means to 'freefly'.
