First-Ever Wingsuit Slalom Race – Red Bull Aces 2014

Andrew ReveszBy Andrew Revesz

The next frontier in flight has arrived: wingsuit slalom racing in the sky. Red Bull Aces features a first-ever wingsuit competition format, with four wingsuit pilots racing head-to-head through a four-gate course suspended in the air. The flyers reach speeds of up to 160 mph, passing through the start gate at 7,000 feet and racing each other through the slalom-style course on their descent before deploying parachutes at approximately 3,000 feet.
