Incredible Wingsuit Flying

When you fly this close to the ground there is no room for any errors. Wingsuit flying (or wingsuiting) is the sport of gliding through the air using a wingsuit which adds surface area to the human body to enable a significant increase in lift. A wingsuit flight normally ends by deploying a parachute, and so a wingsuit can be safely flown from any point that provides sufficient altitude for flight and parachute deployment—normally a skydiving drop aircraft, or BASE-jump exit point such as a tall cliff or a safe mountain top. The wingsuit flier wears parachute equipment specially designed for skydiving or BASE jumping. While the parachute flight is normal, the canopy pilot typically unzips arm wings (after deployment) to be able to reach the steering parachute toggles and control the descent path. The sport of Wingsuit flying is dangerous, and the pursuit of it has contributed to a number of notable fatalities since its inception. Some fail-safe concepts and developments that using technology from airbags or Aeronautics engineering, may reduce the death rate or prevent serious injury, but it would still be one of the most dangerous sports on earth.
