Wingsuit flying is an extreme sport practiced by veteran skydivers and BASE jumpers. From 1930 to the 1960s, the attempt to create a functional wingsuit killed 96% of pioneers attempting to realize the dream of human flight. Today, hundreds fly in wingsuits, but flying remains a dangerous sport left to the select few.
We have the power to change that.
