The BASE Witch Project – Jumping Off Cliff to ESCAPE Death?
AERIAL CHRONICLES OF A VENETIAN, EP. 8
Who knows what beasts lurk in the hills of Lauterbrunnen – all we know is Vladimir Spigler would rather take his chances falling to the earth at breakneck speed than face this monster. There are lots of things to be afraid of out there, and some of those things are unexplained, obscure forces of the darkness… some are gassy monsters who’ve probably drunk too much champagne. But could a love for BASE jumping save Vladimir’s life? Can BASE jumping deliver him from evil in time or will he be eaten up by a gassy monster? Find out now… The BASE Witch Project – Jumping Off Cliff to ESCAPE Death? | Aerial Chronicles of a Venetian, Ep. 8

2012 has been an incredible year for the evolution of human flight.
New suit technology and a dedication to improving skill levels mean we can now fly further, faster and more accurately than ever before. Team Need 4 Speed have worked hard this year to fly new, beautiful lines. We’ve focused on amazing terrain for backdrops, with tight proximity led formations.
Thank you for an amazing year from everyone in Team Need 4 Speed, Phoenix Fly and Adrenalin BASE.
See you at the exit point in 2013

See the 370Z Nismo in action as Peter Pyzera meets up with legendary wingsuit athlete Dave Barlia for a breathtaking challenge in the Swiss Alps.
For the last 5 years GT Academy has been transforming the world’s top gamers into professional racing drivers. Through Nismo Lab, Nissan’s team of performance coaches are continually developing new techniques to push these Nismo athletes to their limits. Now the next chapter in this story has begun…
Jukeride is a unique analysis tool. For the first time it is allowing us to monitor biometric and telematics data from a wingsuit athlete, discovering what it takes to master this incredible feate of mental strength. Together with our coaches, Peter and his fellow Nismo athletes will apply these techniques to their training programmes, helping them to improve their performance and become the very best.
“Whuffo you jump out of them airplanes?” a question that could be asked of Hank Caylor on his birthday at the age of 16 when he completed his first skydive. At that point Hank was already a 5.12 rock climber and held a degree of popularity at his high school for his entrepreneurial skills in pharmaceutical sales. When I questioned him in regards to his popularity he is quick to point out that he also “wore spandex tights to school that made me very popular in a freaky way.”
He describes the struggle of raising him from childhood as “hideous.” explaining that his father is “a Republican, CPA in Texas versus him being a Rock climbing, BASE jumping Colorado freak.” His father has all of his movies and magazines, but he still doesn’t “get it.” He credits his mother with being the cook of his favorite meal, “chicken fried steak” and points out that in his mom’s words she is more afraid of his BASE jumps than she is of his baby brother doing his 3rd tour in Iraq.
