In a nutshell

Wingsuit flying is the crazy sport of flyng the human body through the air using a special jumpsuit, called a wingsuit. The wingsuit adds surface area to the body to enable a significant increase in lift. This is a very dangerous sport, and has a high number of casualties considering the number of people who participate.

Key Players

Some of the top proponents of this sport are Jokke Sommer, Alexander Polli, Jeb Corliss.
