“Project XRW: Flying Dreams over Sebastian” Video, by Raise the Sky
Here is the latest video from the Project XRW (eXtreme Relative Work), that aims to perform a record of the largest mixed flying canopy-wingsuit flock.
While the wingsuit skydivers are in freefall and the canopy pilot is under his open parachute, the flyers can even have a conversation and link up for extended periods. Cutting edge wingsuits slow freefall time, and small, aerodynamic parachutes accelerate their pilots’ descent speeds without compromising safety, allowing this stunning achievement.
The operation is organized by the association Raise the Sky, that brings together high-performance parachute pilots and wingsuit skydivers in order to raise awareness into under-resourced schools.
The project XRW started in April 2010 and kicked off the Flying Dreams Project to benefit and inspire children about what it takes to follow your dreams and face your fears. So far it helped two schools, the Vero Beach Elementary School in Florida and the Pastoral Centre Preschool in Soweto, South Africa.
If you are interested into Wingsuit flock formation, a world record will be attempted in Perris, California in September 2012.
