This Footage Of Speedflying Over A Waterfall Will Give You An Adrenaline Rush

Check out this incredible point-of-view jump from the Flynarchy team as they execute a successful speedflying session from the top of Kjerag mountain in Lysebotn, Norway. Ozone Fazer provides us with the jaw-dropping footage! Speed flying, also known as speed riding , is the air sport of flying a small, fast fabric wing, usually in close proximity to a steep slope. Speed flying and speed riding are very similar sports; speed flying is when the speed wing is foot-launched, while speed riding (or ski gliding) is a winter sport done on skis. Sustained flight with a speed glider is possible over a ridge in strong winds. Speed flying is a hybrid sport that has combined elements of paragliding, parachuting, and even skiing to create a new sport. Like paragliding, speed flying is done by launching from a slope with the wing overhead, already inflated by the incoming air. The main difference between speed flying and paragliding, is that speed flying is meant to create a fast, thrilling ride close to the slope, while the point of paragliding is usually to maintain a longer, gentler flight. The fast landing technique for speed wings is similar to that used in parachuting. However, parachuting or skydiving is done from a plane or fixed object ( BASE jumping ), and the wing is designed to arrest the free fall. Newer designs of hybrid-wings (also called mini-wings) are now being produced to allow a high speed "hike and fly" from mountainous areas. They can be soared in strong laminar winds and thermalled similar to paragliders, and may also be trimmed for a more traditional speed flying descent.

Insane Wingsuit Flight Leaves You At The Edge Of Your Seat 1m10s

Insane Wingsuit Flight Leaves You At The Edge Of Your Seat

You have to have a lot of guts to do something like this! The Brevent exit in Chamonix, France was first opened in 2012, but following a series of accidents within a short amount of time, it was closed by local authorities. It remains one of the most technical wingsuit exits in the world with a very big ledge at 50, very low departure, electric cable, and tons of paragliders. If you're an adventurous and gutsy person, this might be the best activity for you! You definitely can't be afraid of heights, that's for sure!Even though this may look scary, the view is spectacular and totally worth it! Imagine scratching this off your bucket list, so awesome! The speed this occurs at also looks very intimidating, you have to make sure you are far enough away from the objects around you so you don't get injured on the way down, crazy! Special thanks to Nik, Darren and Snake River BASE Jumping School. Have you ever done this before? Let us know in the comment section down below! Check out this video of an insane wingsuit flight! Time to be adventurous and try this out for yourself! What a great story to tell all your friends and family!

Wingsuit BASE Jumper Lands Through Roof Proves This Is An Extreme Sport1m19s

Wingsuit BASE Jumper Lands Through Roof Proves This Is An Extreme Sport

We all know that BASE jumping and proximity flying are extreme sports. This POV clip is a guide on how not to execute a cliff jump. During flight, Michael Schwery lost a booty on exit, and came out incredibly low. It took him too long to open the armwings, and when he was all set for landing he had run out of all viable options. Luckily he avoided serious injury, even after landing through a shed roof! BASE jumping , also sometimes written as B.A.S.E. jumping, is parachuting or wingsuit flying from a fixed structure or cliff. "BASE" is an acronym that stands for four categories of fixed objects from which one can jump: building, antenna, span, and Earth (cliff). Due to the lower altitudes of the jumps, BASE jumping is significantly more dangerous than skydiving from a plane. In the U.S., BASE jumping is currently regarded by many as a fringe extreme sport or stunt. Fausto Veranzio, the inventor of the parachute, is widely believed to have performed a parachute jumping experiment for real and, therefore, to be the first man to build and test a parachute. According to the story passed on, Veranzio, in 1617, then over sixty-five years old, implemented his design and tested the parachute by jumping from St Mark's Campanile in Venice. This event was documented some 30 years later in a book Mathematical Magick or, the Wonders that may be Performed by Mechanical Geometry (London, 1648) written by John Wilkins, the secretary of the Royal Society in London.

The main difference between speed flying and paragliding, is that speed flying is meant to create a fast, thrilling ride close to the slope, while the point of paragliding is usually to maintain a longer, gentler flight. In addition to the scary, dangerous and even extreme venture that BASE jumping is, this guy takes it to a whole new level when he decides to spice it up and prove to everyone that it is not a big deal if he eats a banana mid-air. This might sound insane and it actually proves to be much more insane that it was described. The fast landing technique for speed wings is similar to that used in parachuting . However, parachuting or skydiving is done from a plane or fixed object (BASE jumping), and the wing is designed for free fall. Newer designs of hybrid-wings (also called mini-wings) are now being produced to allow 'hike and fly' high speed from mountainous areas. They can be soared in strong laminar winds similar to para-gliders, and may also be trimmed for a more traditional speed flying descent. Would you dare to ever attempt a stunt like this? Watch as Marek Skowron casually eats a banana while pulling off a base jump in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland. Take a look!

Skydiver's Close Call With an Airplane

Talk about having a close call! This video will surely make your heart leap a little. In this clip, a skydiver experiences an extremely close call while sky-diving in Texas. Around 1:10 pm one of the skydivers experiences a scary moment after a plane flew right below him! You cannot help but to watch and re-watch this video, analyzing the clip to see how close he was to hitting that plane. Luckily no one was hurt in the end! This is one clip that you do not want to miss! That was extremely close call! It didn't look like the plane knew that the sky-divers were jumping on that day! Skydiving is already scary enough as it is but add a close call with hitting a plane and it becomes even more scarier! None the less it still seems like a lot of fun to do! Planes can be really scary as highlighted in this clip here. They are safer than cars though. A lot of people even fly r-c planes to show how much they enjoy the air vehicle! This was one scary moment.
