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.
Team Blacksheep collaborates with Dedicam.tv and the wingsuit basejumpers Patrick Kerber and Simon Wandeler to bring you never-before seen footage of UAVs flying with wingsuit pilots.
A lot of courage was required by the wingsuit pilots – please reward them by sharing this video with your friends!

Barcelona-based designers Ana Mir & Emili Padrós from Emiliana Design Studio came up with 3D rugs shaped like flying carpets for the textile and rugs designer and manufacturer Nani Marquina.
More than a simple rug, Flying Carpet is a comfortable and playful 3D space that lets you sit down, stretch and relax. The corners can be adjusted to fit your comfort zone.
“BIRDMEN” is the very first documentary about the activity of wingsuit flying. Made by the adventure production house Team13, it covers the past, present and one possible future for the sport.
The movie chronicles the history of man’s ancient desire of bird-like flight. Today, after hundreds of thousands of years, humans can fly. It is a dangerous commitment that few have decided to pursue.
Awesome wingsuit flying video. Nice to see the experience on the line, the natural angles and a quite good footage.
Three radio-controlled planes really do look like humans squirreling and flying around New York City. Finally imagination is drawn towards the dream of flight as a matter of fun! Music: “Unstoppable 2″ by Tom Quick.
Fly Your Body is a wingsuit flying school based in France. They organise training camps to put flyers together, to share experiences. This teaser was made after the first camp in 2011, for the 5D Soul Flyers camp II in 2012.To participate, one will need to have already done 150 skydiving jumps.
Watch this freedom inspiring video, in which wingsuit flyers Jokke Sommer and Halvor Angvik share the joy of flying in the mountains.
Here is a collection of shots from a very talented group of wingsuit basejumpers flying around Europe during the 2009-2010 season. The video is beautiful.
In this stuning footage, a man uses his very body to fly with fighter jets over the Swiss Alps.
His wings and engines powered him after he leapt from a helicopter to keep up a synchronized flight with the aircrafts.
The fighters reduced their speed to 220 km/h (137 mph) close to stalling to realize the stunt.
