BASE-Jumper and Wingsuit Pilot Teams Up with World Wingsuit League for Live Stunt: The Human Arrow
Hong Kong – May 2nd, 2016 – World Wingsuit League (WWL) announced today that it is producing Jeb Corliss’s next wingsuit-stunt, The Human Arrow, on the Great Wall of China on May 28th 2016.
Jeb Corliss will drop from a helicopter at 6000 feet, fly through the air at 120 mph and punch through a target the size of an apple suspended over the Great Wall of China. WWL will produce the coverage of his next high-intensity stunt, set to broadcast live on Tianjin TV. For the first time, viewers will be able to see his perspective, live as it is happening, thanks to GoPro’s HEROCastTM technology. GoPro’s HEROCast technology is so small and light it can be worn to perform this adventurous stunt.
“Jeb is an inspiration, constantly pushing the boundaries of what is humanly possible,” said Iiro Seppanen, President of World Wingsuit League. “WWL continues to deliver live cutting-edge sporting events you’ll need to see to believe and Jeb’s next stunt will be nothing short of breathtaking.”
“WWL is a renowned leader in highly complicated, live wingsuit events,” said Jeb Corliss. “I am thrilled to be working with World Wingsuit League on my goal to achieve one of the last great challenges remaining on Earth – human flight.”
Corliss is known as one of the world’s foremost and best-known BASE-jumpers and wingsuit pilots, having dedicated his life to human flight. With more than 19 years of experience, he is said to have completed over 1,000 BASE-jumps in 20 countries on six continents, and over 3,000 wingsuit flights. This is the third joint- venture with Corliss and WWL.
