Along with the acrobatic flying and performance flying events, there was also a target hitting competition, which requires high concentration and incredible flying skills.

Soaring at insane speeds of 180kph (111mph), competitors attempt to hit multi-colored targets with their helmets.

The targets, which hang high on the mountains, range from 9 to 90cm in diameter.

The Wingsuit Flying World Championship was first held in 2012 and has since become an annual event, bringing together adventure lovers from all over the world.
