​Daredevil Wingsuit Pilot Performs Ground-Skimming Flyby

Ever since playing Far Cry 3, I've wondered what it'd be like to fly wearing a wingsuit. How fast could you go? How far could you travel? How close to the ground could you get?

This video from wingsuit-er Brian Drake attempts to answer that last question, as Drake flies down the slope of a French ski resort and gets… very, very close to the ground. YIKES.

    Probably a stupid question but how does a wingsuit-er stop? Combat roll? Foam pit? Grabbing on to tall grass?

      Parachute on their back.

      Parachute is generally the preferred method..

    I think this is cool and all, and I hope it doesn't happen, but this dude Brian Drake is going to end up as a pancake.
