Wingsuit

Wingsuit is a special jumpsuit that shapes the human body into an airfoil which can create lift. The wingsuit creates the airfoil shape with fabric sewn between the legs and under the arms. It is also known as a birdman suit or squirrel suit. A wingsuit can be flown from any point that provides sufficient altitude to glide through the air, such as skydiving aircraft or BASE jumping exit points.The wingsuit flier wears parachute equipment designed for skydiving or BASE jumping and will deploy it at a planned altitude and unzip the arm wings, if necessary and fly to a normal parachute landing
