Given the opportunity how many of you guys would base jump with a flight suit/wing suit ?  I would do it in a heartbeat.

I don't think I would intentionally get that close to the ground. But the idea o flying that far is really cool!

Nope.  It does look fun, though.

The whole costs involved with getting setup to do it.  A suit costs anywhere from $1,500 on up.  Not to mention I can't afford to take the time off work to mend myself if I was injured.

However if someone offered to let me use their wing suit I wouldn't refuse.

Well then why not just jump out of a plane, it's a lot cheaper... and some what safer.  Big Smile

The nearest cliffs that are large enough to jump from are a half days drive.  I guess could always just go up in a plane and jump above a mountain and fly along it on my way down.

I'll start taking donations for a wing suit.Big Grin

I would do it in a heartbeat, but I am sure that there is some training you might want in the suits and parachutes before you try it.  Looks like a rush and something I would love to do.
