Pioneer Wingsuit Jumper
Patrick de Gayardon from France was one of the pioneers in the unique style of skysurfing, where a board is used to make aerobatic maneuvers. De Gayardon was famous for pushing the boundaries of skydiving by perfomring many stunts with his wing-suit, sometimes also called ‘bat suit’.
He died in Hawaii on 13th April 1998 during a skydive using the wing-suit, while testing a new modification to his parachute container; his death is attributed to a rigging error which was part of the new modification.
