The new ultimate extreme sport: Flying

For those looking for the ultimate rush of extreme sports, your adventure awaits on the edge of a cliff. Wingsuit base jumping (or wingsuit flying) puts you in the roll of flying squirrel, gliding through thousands of feet of altitude with no engine. While people have been attempting to build suits like this for decades, it's been only in the last 10 years that someone has (nearly) perfected it and made it safe (rather, as safe as you can make falling thousands of feet).

I have no interest in skydiving or bungee jumping, but this does have my attention. It may be the closest simulation to flying we see in my lifetime. Maybe. Video after the jump.
