Well, not exactly, but pretty darn close. What you see above, and in the video below, is a wingsuit. A wingsuit allows skydivers, or base jumpers, to travel further horizontally before opening their chute. How far you ask? They can go up to 2.5 meters forward for every 1 meter of descent. That’s pretty crazy. You’re still falling, but covering a lot of ground while doing it. To see how amazing this is, check out the video below.
So, want to try it? Of course you do! But would you?
