"Un", subby. "Un oiseau".

/video was cool, though

I'm pretty sure several other wingsuit flyers have gotten closer to the ground before.

Ask Jeb Corliss about it sometime. There are a few others, but you'd need a Ouiji board.

Video from the pilot's POV (in the slomo you can see him wearing a camera) or it didn't happen!

Wow!  He almost took that tree up the oiseau!

A thunder of jets and an open sky,
A streak of gray and a cheerful "Hi!"
A loop, a whirl, a vertical climb

Yep, that poor sob who nailed that rock ledge with both knees.  The vid made it here a year or so ago.

I like how they call themselves "pilots" now.

Given how tight that couloir appears, if he really was tracking it as it curved for some distance, then I am inclined to say piloting was involved.

It's just falling with style

Dude stole my thunder completely.

I am not saying they aren;t more awesome then me and that some math would be involved. It's still falling with style.

See I'm not sure its' even falling with style though. I'd like to know more. Can wingsuiters go down any arbitrarily sloped hill? Did that guy have any idea at the start of his run what his altitude profile would look like? Do they survey the hills and routes before hand?

If they could be given any arbitrary hill and determine with reasonable accuracy if they could safely fly down it and at what altitudes then I think there is a lot to be said that they are falling with style.

But if it's mostly a matter of guesswork and YOLO then I think it's falling with testosterone more than falling with style.

But I do think if they can track a tight couloir then there is some piloting involved.
