Nine months later! (That means if you got pregnant at this boogie, your baby is probably due by now). It's been a busy spring, summer, and fall for me... but now that the slow winter is here, I finally got around to editing this together. Makes me miss the sunshine and warm weather for sure...

Whether it's Dean Potter free-basing off Eiger; JT Holmes getting his wing suit on in Switzerland; Steph Davis BASE jumping Castleton Tower; or Andy Lewis high lining in Boulder, these are just a few of our awesome friends to be featured in our latest Athlete Driven™ video.

Russian engineers are working on an individual flying vehicle, which users will need no parachute.
New flying vehicle looks like a Batman suit. Its main idea is a wingsuit, widely used in sky-diving, which is a jumpsuit with textile webs between extremities. Ordinary wingsuit doesn’t provide landing, because it cannot be used insdead of a parachute.
New development of Russian engineers boasts larger webs for improved stability and safe landing. Landing will be based upon “cushion” effect, common for landings with parachutes of “wing” type.
Engineers are currently calculating optimum parameters for the suit and will soon start testing a full-scale model of the suit in a wind channel.This is an English language summary I found on the Russian Infocentre website. The original Science News article is in Russian; I let Google translate give it a shot, and it's surprisingly readable:
Barry Holubeck and I just completed a two day training camp, experimenting with new approach methods, flight modes and formations. During our camp we made some great discoveries, such as: a new exit strategy that does not affect jump run (pilot does not have to do any special patterns) and we also cut our set up time down from 60 seconds to less than 30! (that is from exit to first contact)
there's a vertiginous aerial dive shot from the perspective of a soldier in a wingsuit (Bay had these guys zipping around a skyscraper-lined two-mile stretch of downtown Chicago for three weeks)
I had the same guys that did AVATAR and have a lot of experience with that system, but they'd never done what we've done. We put it through a rigorous test. We strapped a camera on a skydiver, you know that doesn't really happen much. We put it on systems that it's never been on before.
I'm still of the opinion that a great Michael Bay action film doesn't need 3D to blow me away, but it really does look like he's done something remarkable with that wingsuit sequence. I can only imagine how it'll play on an IMAX screen. I'm going to have a light lunch that day.
Wingsuit first flight course at Lake Elsinore - October 16, 2010.
a HUGE dream come true to finally fly. Wearing a Phantom2 wingsuit made by Robert Pecnik and Phoenix Fly.
Special thanks to Douglas Spotted Eagle, Darren Burke, Jonny Schneider, and Adam Seidenstricker.
a few very nice days in italy at the big wall of the monte brento, next to the largo di garda.
We had a lot of fun in a nice group, amazing jumps, sometimes interesting weather!:-)
At all....a very good time...
A few months back I was asked by Douglas Spotted Eagle (aka Spot) and VASST to co-present in one of their training videos that was going to be about shooting with DSLR’s. I had personally purchased more than a handful of their training DVD’s in the past on various subjects and jumped at the chance. Spot is someone that I got to know through several video related forums early on and has been both a mentor and a friend ever since and it was an honor, if not a little surreal to be doing this with him so many years later.
Needless to say I had a great time up in Utah hanging out with him and Mannie Frances, his partner, while working on this and am thrilled to say that it’s finally out and available! The clip is actually on a bonus section of the DVD. You can check it out here
