Leaping from 2,400ft without a parachute - Hillgrove PR special

A British stuntman leapt 2,400ft from helicopter without parachute and landed safe onto a crash-pad of cardboard boxes. He was wearing a specially-made wing suit and had trained for weeks in Switzerland and Italy ahead of the jump, leaping from mountains and cliffs to practice gliding in his wing suit. 

He is said to have studied the flight of kite birds to improve his technique in the wing suit.

More such brave attempts and further technical improvements in this 'wing suit' can sometimes lead to the making of some sort of craft or suit that may help human to safely glide in the air. After all, many great achievements started from simple steps of trial-and-error methods - just a crazy thought!!!
