Have you ever wondered what it was like to jump out of a plane and just fly? Fraser Corsan, the World Record holder for Fastest Speed Flown in a Wingsuit, will share his experiences of jumping from an aircraft at 35,508ft and travelling at over 249mph!
The talk covers the history of early wingsuit development and the inherent dangers and challenges that had to be overcome up to the current day development.
Fraser covers his personal approach to risk having worked on a number of key programmes as a safety expert from Safety strategy for the BBMF to the acting as the UK safety lead for the Eurofighter Typhoon.
Whilst also detailing the project that took Fraser to 35,508ft and setting new UK and EU records for the highest ever skydive and longest freefall made, whilst setting a new world record for the fastest speed flown in a wingsuit.
Also covering the personal training, technical challenges of life support under extreme cold and altitude, risk management approach, motivations behind the project and the multiple systems developed to enable the jumps to be possible.
An evening of high altitude thrills and hopefully not too many spills!
A curry supper is available from the The Museum of Flying's Apache Cafe team from 6pm (vegetarian meal also offered). Curry suppers are limited to 60, so book now to avoid disappointment.
