  1. I have one question, how on earth are you going to survive a rocket launch, the rockets used to launch satellites are not made to carry humans and thus their G-forces are much greater. I think he would be killed or black out due to the forces on launch.... I just think this is crazy! But i would like to know more!

    Hello!

    Welcome, i too am looking to get into the wing suits~ they also run $1,500 or so... But try looking for a used rig... Its easier to pack and a lot cheaper! www.chutingstar.com is a great place to find new and used gear. I would recommend trying to find something that fits you there. Also talk to a local rigger. He will know a good deal that will be also safe and save you a few bucks.

    Best hand luggage bag for a Rig

    I was talking with some chick that worked for some air line and she said that they can ask you to check your chute... Has anyone had any issues with bringing your rig on the plane? She said they were afraid that you would jump out... I was like "traveling 600 mph at 35k ft.... sounds like suicide before you even got a chance to pull." Also they were talking about the AAD and the cutter pyrotechnics, or that you cant open the reserve... Anyone have any of these problems?
