High Altitude Wingsuit Jumps - The Records

Wingsuit Records
There have been quite a few distance and time records set in wingsuit flying over the past few years. We here at WWWN figured we would list all record (official and un-official) up to this point, and we will work on keeping this list as up to date as possible. If you have (be it by data, video, or media) verified additions or corrections, shoot us an email.

The jump objective for these jumps often varied from furthest distance flown, to longest freefall time or both.
Pull altitude isnt known for most jumps, but on record attempts (official and un-official) should always be above legal pull altutude of 2500 ft.
And (recommended and most likely) a bit higher to calculate for the effects of fatigue and additional gear used for high altitude loads.

NOTE: Not all attempts have been varified officialy (either by official organisation/Guiness judge checking for validity and/or presenting GPS/Altimeter data/video).

Latest update: Ben Borger set a new distance record
