Does a wingsuit fly or only reduce the vertical speed due to aerodynamic drag? It really flies, as simply its area is not enough for such a reduction in vertical speed and smooth planning.
But only gravity allows flying to wingsuit. The vertical fall caused by gravity forces the wingsuit into a horizontal (as far as possible) flight. The same principles underlie the flight of gliders, hang gliders and wing-type parachutes. Continue reading
