I have always wanted to fly. And I have no fear of heights – hence I have climbed the CIX mast numerous times (with appropriate safety gear!).
However, just watching these guys in wingsuits scares the hell out of me! I don’t think I’d ever raise the nerve to do that.

Hmm, looks kinda dangerous.
Sweet mother! That is incredible. thanks Tom.
Woh mad stuff. They use similar technology for jackets for motorbike riders and construction workers to break falls now also.
so none of you get your news from the Irish outdoor blog then!!? (14/10)
My jaw just hit the floor especially seeing the video link provided by Robin. The in-flight video shots just left me with a massive dose of goose pimples! Mid-flight somersaults?! The hair-pin fly-bys is just too much! What will they think next both in terms of wingsuit useage and the next invention?! I’m stunned!
I reckon extreme fitness is required to keep arms & legs straight and stiff for the entire duration of flight to maintain wingsuit shape.
