Humans can Fly?

Wingsuit Flying has become famous for the extreme sports fanatic these days. The modern jumpsuit design was inspired by a flying squirrel's body. This is what makes a man think that it is possible for humans to fly too!

We all know that flying squirrels can't really fly, they glide into the air and use their flat tails to stir, the only  reason they can hang into the air for a long period of time is because their body weighs only 3 ounces. On the other hand, flying with this wingsuit can only be performed jumping or exiting in a high altitude areas such as a cliff, a paraglider, a hot air balloon or a helicopter. It requires more skill to exit a moving aircraft because of the difference from the initial wind speed it provides. A wingsuit jumper will deploy his parachute using the same altitude that sky divers follow.

Here is the awesome video of a wingsuit flying taken in Norway
