He's definitely living on the edge.
A pioneer of the sport and like a lot with the new extreme sports, they unfortunately lose their lives that way.
As most of them say though, they'd rather die doing something they love.

I believe Patrick de Gayardon was the true pioneer of wing suits; an invention which he first called a "bat suit" Patrick paved the way for so many wing suit jumpers of today.

An amazing guy who is now flying in the stars

RIP.

Yes I agree, however Wing suits and the sport of wing suiting has come a long way since Patrick. And this new breed of flyer are pushing the boundaries to the extreme and beyond. The glide distances, maneuverability and not to mention speeds they are able to achieve now are mind boggling.
