Stunt Junkies Jet Powered Wing Suit- Stunt Junkies

(Stunt Junkies) In this stunt Visa Parviainen jumps from a helicopter in a powered wing suit with two small turbojet jet engines attached to his boots. The turbojets provide the thrust needed to achieve horizontal flight. Visa hoped to reach speeds of approximately 120 mph and a flight distance of approximately 20 miles. On his last attempt he "flew" for approximately two minutes; this time, using larger engines, he hoped to sustain horizontal flight for an unbelievable five minutes.

The wingsuit was modified to include the throttle, kill switch and fuel bladders in the cells of the wing.
