“Leaping off mountains wearing only a wingsuit may be thrilling but it’s also incredibly dangerous. Yet those flyers who are pushing the bounds of safety show no signs of slowing down.”

I Hit A Tree And Broke My Paramotor – Icarus Trophy Day One:
325 Miles In One Day On My Paramotor – Icarus Trophy Day Two:
“On the second day of the Icarus Trophy, near perfect weather and a tailwind up high allowed me to cover an insane amount of distance. On the first two legs, hypoxia was definitely a concern. By my third flight of the day, the air became very turbulent and thermally which proved to be my most difficult flight yet. Finally, I took a gamble and flew away from the recommended course to Jackpot, Nevada for the night.”
Crossing The Salt Flats On My Paramotor – Icarus Trophy Day Three:
“The third day of the Icarus Trophy was tough. I woke up feeling drained and sore but was presented with the sketchiest launch of the entire race. After leaving Jackpot, I was surprised with turbulent wind as I arrived in Wendover. The following flight was the most challenging of the entire race. The turbulence got so bad toward the end that I decided to land safely at a rest area. The final flight was a extremely beautiful but a race against the sun set. Luckily, Nephi airport had a courtesy car and I was rewarded with a nice meal at Wendy’s.”
Flying Into A Thunderstorm – Icarus Trophy Day Four:
“Day four was full of tough decisions. Just after crossing an incredible 11,000ft mountain range, I received a message warning the pilots about a 30 mile wide system with 42,000ft tops around the Monument Valley and Lake Powell area. The system was exactly in the direction I was headed and moving even closer throughout the day. Risky decision after risky decision led me all the way to Monticello Airport, which turned out to be the nicest FBO I had visited. Hot coffee, a courtesy car, and a big fluffy couch made a day of tough flying well worth it.”
I WON THE ICARUS TROPHY – Icarus Trophy Day Five:
“Before I started this race, I decided that I wanted to finish safely and to the best of my ability. I wasn’t too worried about beating the competitors and if I won, it would just be a bonus. This turned out to be the greatest adventure of my life. Dodging clouds by Missoula, eating meatloaf with a family in twin bridges, cruising at 11,000ft for over an hour, fueling up in ‘the middle of no where’, getting the worst sunburn of my life, crossing the salt flats, sleeping on a bathroom floor in Nephi, flying beside giant rock walls near Moab, fueling up among private jets in Page, and finally crossing the finish line at full speed downwind in Mesquite. It was truly an adventure I will remember for the rest of my life.”
…I’m not insane…[honest!…I’m not!]…So, I’m never going to actually do this…
…But, you have no idea how badly I want to.
