Chinese Flying Dragon Pilot In Flight

As pilots we all love anything that flies, but sometimes even I wonder whether this makes any sense at all.

One thing I give Red Bull credit for – they find the most amazing flying aircraft and devices – and the pilots to fly them. How would you like to race through canyons, over roads and down valleys at what seem to be jet speeds? Are you up for the thrill?

There are some fellas in China who have designed dragon-like flying suits that allow them to launch from great heights and skim through valleys and mountain tops in what I would guess would be some of the most thrilling flight time ever recorded. These devices are called Chinese Flying Dragons.

I don’t know about you, but this is definitely not on my bucket list!

Let me share an amazing video with you:

If this doesn’t give you a thrill I don’t know what will!

Until next time keep your wings straight and level Hersch!
