Fraser Corsan is a man on a mission. In May 2017 he will be travelling to the USA to begin his attempt to break four wingsuit world records in order to raise money for SSAFA, the Armed Forces Charity. A charity that provides lifelong support to anyone who is currently serving or has ever served in the Royal Navy, British Army or Royal Air Force, as a regular or a reserve and their families.
Even with his years of experience in a wingsuit, this is a challenge that is only made possible through the support of innovative and revolutionary technology, developed by a dedicated team of specialists across a number of industries, supported by Fujitsu. His four world record attempts will push Fraser’s body, mind and the technology to the limit in the most hostile environment above the earth with the following challenges ahead of him:
- Highest Altitude Jumped in a wingsuit – target 40,000ft
- Longest Time Flown in a wingsuit – target 10mins
- Highest Speed Flown in a wingsuit – target 250mph
- Furthest distance Flown in a wingsuit - target 20 Miles
Fraser has worked closely with UK Armed Forces his entire
career and is passionate about supporting SSAFA in the work they do that encompasses anyone who has ever served. The funds raised will go to support SSAFA’s work in the community through volunteer caseworkers and their confidential helpline Forcesline. It will also help SSAFA to assist service leavers with the difficult transition process out of the Forces, and provide welfare services for those veterans of working age who have struggled with the adjustment to civilian life.
Fujitsu creates technology to enable people to do incredible things, and this is no exception. Whether you’re interested in the technological journey Fraser and the team will be going through to get ready for May 2017, or you want to donate and support SSAFA.
All donations raised will go directly to SSAFA
