Over the years we’ve shared a lot of wingsuit videos here on The Adventure Blog. Usually, those clips just share the amazing footage that is captured from a flight, including some pretty impressive proximity flying. But, there is a lot more to the sport than just taking flight from a tall cliff, bridge, or aircraft. This video, which comes our way from Kavu, takes us behind the scenes of the wingsuit/BASE jumping phenomenon, giving us a better idea of what goes into a flight in terms of training, preparation, experience, and so on. It’ll probably come as no surprise that you don’t just don the suit and take a leap, but there is still plenty of fascinating stuff to be learned. Oh, and it has some pretty great flight footage too.
