Have you ever seen a flying squirrel? Visualize the same concept and morph it into a suit. Wingsuit flying is the sport of flying via jumpsuit that increases the surface area of the body to enable lift. Wingsuit flyers launch via plane or BASE-jump heights and have built-in parachute equipment. On May 28, 2011, Japanese wingsuit pilot Shin Ito set a world record for the fastest speed reached in a Wingsuit, reaching 363 km/h (226 mph).
