Attempting Four Wingsuit World Records

British Wingsuit jumper, Fraser Corsan, is travelling to the USA and Canada to attempt to break four world records in Wingsuit flying. In what has been named ‘Project Cirrus’, Fraser aims to break the distance record of 19 miles, speed record of more than 234 mph and the flight duration record of 9.06 minutes, whilst also breaking the current altitude record of 37,256ft over 2 high altitude jumps.

The challenge in perspective

  • The average forward speed of a typical wingsuit flyer is around 80 – 120mph
  • The normal altitude a wingsuit flyer jumps from is typically 13,000ft
  • To start wingsuit flying you need to have completed at least 500 skydives

Fraser’s attempts will be supported by Fujitsu, his current employer, and despite his years of experience in a wingsuit, this is a challenge that is only made possible through the support of innovative and revolutionary technology, developed by a dedicated team of specialists across a number of industries. His challenge exemplifies what Fujitsu is about – technology and humans working together to achieve breakthrough results, safely and securely, innovating through technology to achieve more.

Alongside a specially designed high-performance wingsuit by Phoenix-Fly, Fraser will be using a small piece of GPS receiver tech called FlySight, also designed specifically for wingsuit flying. It provides real-time audible indication of glide ratio and horizontal or vertical speed. Turned on a few minutes before the jump, audible feedback begins immediately after exit allowing Fraser to adjust body position accordingly during each record attempt. Fraser receives his feedback through two small headphones in his High Altitude helmet which offers thermal, audio and impact protection.

In addition to the FlySight GPS device, Fraser will be using an audible altimeter called the Visio and a visual Altimeter called the Military Altitrack from Larsen and Brusgaard. These will enable him to track his attitude at all times and monitor how close he is to breaking his world records. He will also have a GPS tracking device that will transmit his position to the ground team so they can meet him at his landing position.

Sixteen years ago, Fraser Corsan was one of only 15 wingsuit pilots globally. Since then, he has completed 1,300 flights, but this year’s extreme challenge is one of the biggest tests of his career. The jump will entail exiting an aircraft at over 40,000ft, whilst battling temperatures of minus 65 degrees Celsius and winds of up to 200 mph.

In the run up to the jump, Fraser will be embarking on endurance training with focus on intense muscle and cardio training sessions, in addition to a practising a set of specific safety drills in the event of Oxygen system, parachute or wingsuit failure. Multiple training flights over UK airfields are taking place when the weather permits, and Fraser also intends to do 100 further endurance flights to fine polish the technology and his flying style to ensure he reaches his goal.

Fraser’s incredible World Record attempts are supported by Fujitsu and all donations will go directly to SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity. For more info visit http://projectcirrus.com/ or Text Suit79 (with the amount £1/2/3/4/5/10) to 70070.
