Airtime's Wingcam at the FIS Alpine World Championships in St Moritz

The Airtime Wingcam is flying above the Finish Area of all eleven Alpine Competitions

The Wingcam spans a length of 1,150m and runs above the women's racetrack with insight into the lower range of all disciplines of women and men. The line was designed and worked out together with SRG SSR TV director Beni Giger. The system is stretched between only two 18 m masts, which were also provided by Airtime Unlimited GmbH. The lower mast is connected to the Nüssli main stand at the finish area and and was manually erected. The upper mast was flown in as one piece with the helicopter and mounted on prepared ground anchors. This practice is often used when the Wingcam is used in alpine competitions.
