New World Record attempt in the USA: One of the last remaining big adventures in the sky

Marc Hauser, (*1971)



Always be yourself!
Unless you can be a superhero


- then always be a superhero.

Exploring the limits. Flying faster than ever before! Extreme skydiving at its best. Coming soon in 2017...

The Air Adventure

Marc Hauser is the current World Record holder in Speed Tracking, 189 miles per hour (304 km/h)

The Record was set in October 2012.
Marc is now planning his next adventure: to set a new World Record that has never been seen before.

 

The Target: Faster Higher Stronger

Exploring the limits of what is humanly possible.

Marc Hauser's discipline "Speed Tracking" is flying in a suit with no wings at all.

In 2017 we will push the envelope.

1 Hot Air Balloon, a real BIG one

Our balloon will be slightly larger than the hot air balloons seen here.  
Three times larger to be precise.

Thermal Protection Suits

"What's the thermal issue if it's in New Mexico?" you may ask. That's a good question, but because we will climb to very high altitudes we will need something more than warm pullovers and tights.

We may not need astronaut suits - but it will come pretty close.


Supplementary Oxygen

Skydivers exit their planes at around 12500 feet (3180m) over the airport.

We will climb up quite a bit higher with our hot air balloon.

That's why we have to breathe pure oxygen, even some hours before take off. Our speacialists call it nitrogen removal. - We call it pure adventure!

Search and Rescue

New Mexico is wide and dry. That's why we will need a special equipped Rescue team at our side.

Without it, we may just set a new World Record in walking distance back to the airport...

"Jumping out of a balloon? - a piece of cake!"
You are absolutely right. There must be something more to this adventure.

The point of our story is based on a first timer.
This will be something that has never been done before in the history of aviation and skydiving.

Does this sound a bit strange to you?

Believe us, that's exactly how it sounds to us too. Plus it also sounds a bit scary, to be honest.
And we already know the surprising facts...
