GroWings – Wingsuit Speed Training With Alexander Polli in Italy.
Episode 3 takes us to Monte Brento, Italy to follow Nate as he trains with Alexander Polli and other friends. He starts to learn to fly his suit with more speed and aggression and slowly edges closer and closer to terrain.

Alexander Polli – Precision Of Human Flight. Alexander Polli advances the field of human flight with the first-ever successful wingsuit target strike. Few have tried—none have succeeded, until now! Reaching speeds of 250 km/h (155 mph), Alexander aims and explodes through precisely placed foam slalom gates at key turns as he pilots downhill—a feat never before accomplished!
Shot in full HD with multiple angles, Alexander literally breaks through the barriers of what is possible in human flight.
Through his videos, Alexander is working to change the perception of participants in this sport—as professional athletes driven by passion rather than adrenaline daredevil death-wishing lunatics. Namaste.
