The first human ski jump over 100 metres was achieved here in 1936 by an Austrian Sepp Bradl. In 1969 a new K-185 hill was constructed by Lado and Janez Gorišek. Since 1986, when Matti Nykänen flew 191 metres, the world record hasn't moved from Planica to any other of ski flying hills (e.g. Kulm (Tauplitz or Bad Mitterndorf) in Austria, Harrachov in Czech Republic, Oberstdorf in Germany or Vikersund in Norway).
In 1994 a Finn Toni Nieminen was the first human flying over 200 metres. As of 2005, the world record is 239 metres by Bjørn Einar Romøren of Norway from 2005.
