Biography

Katie Hansen is one of the few women in the world who can claim to be on both sides of XRW – the wingsuit pilot or the canopy pilot. When she’s not strutting her stuff under small wings or big wingsuits, freeflying or BASE jumping, she also loves cooking, tropical house music and reads way too much fantasy/sci-fi.

Starting Skydiving: 2003
Jumps: 7000
Ratings: Pro, AFFi, TI, coach
