An incredible record attempt needs an equally incredible wingsuit and Fraser’s custom Phoenix-Fly Vampire Alpine wingsuit is all that and more.
Typical wingsuits provide enough lift, and therefore glide to slow down freefall jumps and help the wingsuit pilot to fly forwards. They effectively transform the human body into a full-body wing with as much horizontal surface as possible with top and bottom skins between the legs and under the arms the same as an aircraft wing. However, it is not just about surface area, the wing profile must be optimized to maximize lift whilst reducing drag, whilst still enabling the pilot to safely deploy their parachute.
Fraser will be facing numerous extremes during his world record attempts, needing specialist equipment to safely fly whilst helping his world record attempts.
Automatic Activation Device – Airtec GMbH have developed a specific CYPRES Wingsuit AAD unit for the project that not only can manage the challenges of wingsuit flight but is cleared to over the target altitude.
