What do you do when the US government takes away your BASE jumping spots and makes them illegal? Make some new ones...
The sport of wingsuiting in the US is 'an endangered' one, where despite there being hundreds of amazing National Parks and jump spots, there are fewer and fewer legal spots to BASE jump.
This video series is about the revolution that wingsuit BASE jumping is going through in the USA. Advances in wingsuit design, technique, and pilot skill open the doors to possibility and open up the areas where jumping is possible.
In the beginning jumpers required massive overhanging cliffs and room to fly away. Now, all that is needed is a small crag atop a big hill. Join pilots Charley Kurlinkus, Sean Leary and Jeff Shapiro in their quest to find and establish new wingsuit BASE jumps across North America.
American Wingsuit BASE Jump Revolution | Mountain Flying USA with Sean Leary, Ep. 1
Wingsuit Base jumping in America is experiencing a revolution. Until recently, wingsuit base jumpers required massive overhanging cliffs with lots of room to fly away. In the USA those big walls are mostly in national parks where jumping is prohibited. Recent advances in wing suit design, technique, and pilot skill have opened the doors to possibility. Now, a small crag atop a big hill combined with a little imagination and a thirst for adventure is a perfect recipe for human flight. Watch as the sport of wing suit flying in the USA is reborn outside of national parks. Join pilots Charley Kurlinkus, Sean Leary, and Jeff Shapiro in their quest for new & legal wing suit base jumps across North America.
