Francis Heilmann's new wingsuit is an unusual object of art: a prehistoric wingsuit in animal skins, carved with flint blades, built with stone tools, awls and spikes in bone, just like how early modern man would have made it.
Francis Heilmann has tested his pre-historic wingsuit in Tallard in early July, from the Caravan of Paradrenalin: although without any expectations or pressure, it flew really well; it had speed and glided well, it was easy to direct, was very stable and had no problem opening, which is a welcome surprise for its potential use in BASE-jumping.
