Jhonathan Florez Breaks Four Wingsuit World Records

Daredevil Jhonathan Florez broke four Guinness World Records in one 37,265ft high wingsuit jump, flying for 9 minutes and 6 seconds minutes above Guajira, Colombia.

Jhonathan Florez’s jump broke the world record for the longest duration wingsuit jump, the greatest horizontal distance flown in a wingsuit (16.315 miles), the greatest absolute distance flown in a wingsuit (17.520 miles) and the highest ever wingsuit jump.

Florez, who completed the jump on April 20, said:

“It was just an amazing feeling when I completed the jump. It was the best moment of my life.

“When you are up there it really feels like you are flying.

“It was great to break so many records in just one attempt.

The record jump was achieved after months of training in an Apache XRW suit that included a GPS tracking system and special thermals to protect him from the extreme cold.
