Inspired by his skydiving grandfather, Aerospace Engineer Angelo Grubisic fell in love with the high-risk sport of wingsuit BASE jumping. He’s using his engineering knowledge to apply aeronautical principles to this extreme sport.
Angelo is developing the world’s most scientifically engineered wingsuit, capable of smashing records. For the first time ever, he and his team at Southampton University are simulating wingsuit performance and applying engineering design principals to create the ultimate suit.
His goal is to move the sport forwards and set world records for human flight: for the highest altitude, longest flight time, fastest speed and longest distance flown.
