Wingsuit inspired car?


Edmunds Inside Line posted an article about this Honda concept car.

Honda Air concept for the L.A. show Design Challenge is a "coastal cruiser for the aggressive lifestyle" with compressed air/pneumatic drive with the bonus of turbo vacuums. Inspiration was the skydiving wing suit and the modern rollercoaster, says Honda.


I guess we'll hear more about it when the LA Auto show kicks off. We'll keep you posted on details of what is wingsuit inspired.

Check out the article here.

Jackass Wingsuit Flying

John from Australia sent us a heads-up regarding the new JackAss movie, which we reported about earlier.

Jackass 3D features stunt with wingsuit


From the MTV Movie Blog comes a post about the new Jackass 3D movie. They try to figure out how much the stunt cost where they have Ryan Dunn sit behind a jet that slowly powers up. Apparently in the next scene they have him wear a wingsuit and walk behind the jet. Unfortunately the embedded movie clip doesn't feature the wingsuit stunt, but I'm sure we'll see it online soon.

In the meantime, check out the article here.

Cold Steel


Base 434 posted a reminder that today marks the memorial day, where we should remember Lukas Knutsson.

Lukas was one of the first BASE pioneers, and one of the people who opened up the world of wingsuit flying and base to the people sitting in front of their computer screens by showing some of the best and fastest flying possible.

Check out this memorial video, made as a tribute to a man who's name every wingsuit jumper should know.

Lukas Knutsson is remembered through his website www.lukieland.se and the yearly Cold Steel award, given to a skydiver or basejumper for contributions to the sport, is a lasting memory of the mans legacy!

BSBD!

Tandem FlyBy

And from the same busy weekend, a video shot on a skydive where I (Jarno) was not wearing a wingsuit for once:

Watch Eli and Bart carve past the canopy at high speed, giving my brother an incredible show on top of his tandemjump!

Goggles with integrated GPS


Engadget has a post about goggles that have an integrated GPS from which the data is projected right in front of your eyes. Pretty fucking cool!

they're equipped with a Zeal Optics' frame design with a micro LCD display, which appears to hang approximately six feet in front of the user. That head-mounted display provides real-time feedback to the wearer, including speed, latitude / longitude, altitude, vertical distance traveled, total distance traveled, a chrono / stopwatch mode, a run-counter, temperature and time.

Woman Gets Gay Man Fired for Spooning Her in Midair

From the 'only-slightly-wingsuit-related-department', a silly story in the mass media about wingsuiter and tandem master Donald Zarda getting let off his tandem duties because he apparently groped a woman during a tandem jump. What makes the whole debacle very silly is that he in fact openly gay and thus has no interest in groping women whatsoever.

Read the full story here.

Justin Shorb speaking at museum exhibit

Our daily trawling of the Internet for wingsuit related news titbits came up with the following gem:

Justin Shorb will apparently be giving a presentation at the Mystic Seaport Museum (in Mystic, Connecticut, USA) where there is an exhibition entitled 'Adventure Series'.

Thursday, October 21 – Justin Shorb, the visionary who founded Flock University, will present “Wingsuit Flying: The Most Dangerous Sport in the World,” and will share the thrill of leaping out of an aircraft and soaring through the air. As an organizer, team captain and plane captain at every major skydiving event in the USA and in Marl, Germany, Shorb is revered as a leader and coach in this extreme sport.


Let's hope our great leader and coach can inspire some whuffos!

Interestingly, in communications, the company has shifted its name back from the Finish .oy (.ltd) back to the international Inc.
This seems to suggest the company is abandoning previous financial commitments related to the .oy company, and (re)starting under the .inc flag.
