A sensation seeker with a lust for life, Dan Vicary has been chasing the dream of human flight since he was just a boy.
Now a dedicated professional BASEjumper and skydiver, his pursuit of flight in its rawest form has taken him from home in New Zealand across Australia to the Idaho Desert, remotest China, Thai beaches & Malaysian skyscrapers... to Europe, where in the Swiss Alps he is flying with a dedicated group of pilots & jumpers who are pioneering the very latest in BASEjumping & wingsuit flight.
"BASEjumping is a beautiful sport. It's a respectful sport - we are considerate of fellow jumpers and pilots and also the environment in which we fly. It's technical and, often, downright geeky. And it's taken me all around the world, meeting some of the most inspirational, motivated, brilliant and humble people on the planet.
Some might think it's crazy, but BASE for me is the place to go to face your fears... face them, and overcome them; and the dedication it takes means that the sport is full of pioneers who are pushing the limits of what we once thought was possible - and doing it safely.
With the advent of speedflying and speedriding, skiBASE and high perfomance wingsuits, it's an incredible time to be involved in jumping - and I'm so lucky to be a part of it."
