The dream of flying has captivated human imagination since prehistoric times. Even with the advent of aircrafts and the increasing availability of air travel, the ancient question stays with us: What if we could simply spread our arms and fly like a bird?
Wingsuit flight is a groundbreaking phenomenon that has adrenaline junkies traveling the world in search of one exhilarating experience after the next. Our flyers have set records searching out the most exciting locations to take longer and more daring flights. In this epic 40-minute IMAX experience, we catch a ride with some of the best flyers in the world as they journey to incredible mountaintops while teaching us the art and science of human flight. The film is both a first and third person perspective from the flyers themselves and a name Voice Over. It will feature incredible footage from POV helmet cameras, flying drones, and helicopter rigs.
What’s behind the pilot and the suit? How can they fly longer and faster? Will man ever fly without a chute? We answer those questions and more while exploring the burgeoning counter culture of wingsuit pilots, whose lives are dedicated to chasing the thrill and pursuit of human flight.
