Friday Freakout: Wingsuiter Uses All 9 Lives, Saved By AAD!!!

Posted by Andrew R.

As this wingsuiter prepared to cutaway from heavy line twists, he realized his situation was much worse — the handle for his reserve parachute was stuck under the wing zipper!

He didn’t have an RSL, so he knew that cutting away wouldn’t automatically deploy his reserve.

He made a risky decision to cutaway anyways, with the intention of flying head-down to increase his speed in the hopes that his AAD (Vigil) would activate.

The plan worked and the Vigil saved his ass, but the madness for Sky MacGyver wasn’t over just yet… he skimmed across power lines and slammed into some cinder blocks.

Wow, talk about a wild ride back down to earth!
