In this episode of Wild Women the world’s fastest flying woman, Ellen Brennan, talks about the risks and rewards of the dangerous pursuit of wingsuit flying. Her interview gives us an unprecedented look into an often misunderstood sport and puts a very human face on what appears to be a superhuman feat.
Ellen started BASE jumping in 2006 and after many hours of practice and countless jumps she graduated to wingsuit flying in 2008. Since then she has dedicated much of her life to the sport, moving to Europe and making the Alps her playground.
"It's so rewarding to do something you're not meant to do," Ellen says of wingsuit flying. "You're doing what the birds do... and you're seeing everything from a different perspective."
