From speed flying to BASE-jumping, the Florida-based team holds myriad world records and titles. But even with its air-gliding expertise, the group isn’t shielded from the unpredictable, and tragedy can strike at a moment’s notice. Here, you’ll see some incredible feats, and experience the highs and lows that can come with the territory when pursuing the ultimate thrill.
