Wingsuit pilots compete during the Red Bull Aces wingsuit four-cross race in Phoenix, Arizona, United States on November 19, 2016.

Red Bull Aces is a competition where athletes don wingsuits, special jumpsuits that shape the human body into an airfoil, creating lift and, with it, “human flight.” Forty athletes from 18 countries jumped in four-person heats from a Bell “ Huey” civilian helicopter at 8,000ft above the Phoenix desert, slaloming head-to-head at 160mph through four race gates suspended mid-air. Sound insane? That’s because it is. Just check out the video below.-TO
