Luke Aikins jump with no parachute… My professional take

There’s a LOT of talk on Luke Aikins historic jump with no parachute.

Is he crazy? Is it a Darwin Award waiting to happen? Would I do it? Is it inspiring? ETC.

I’m not going to ruin the video by typing it all out here, but suffice it to say

My thoughts on this are very clear.

For those of you who don’t know my professional history, I have significant experience in skydiving and stunts, including high-fall stunts, 10,000 jumps around the world in varied and challenging locations, performing in front of crowds, etc. I share this simply so you know my commentary on Luke’s jump comes with that professional experience behind it.

The Facebook post of this video is where a majority of the views and commentary take place, so if you want to engage in the discussion, go here.
