The man behind the legandary wingsuit company Phoenix Fly and some of the most jaw droppingly amazing proximity flying videos is not normally one for giving interviews, so when BSM got the chance to tag along on one of his recent BASE trips, we quite literally jumped at the chance – No, seriously, we took a BASE rig. Well, it would be rude not to.
Robert Pecnik normally shies away from the media spotlight, preferring instead to focus his time on designing new, more advanced suits as well as BASE jumping his ass off as part of Team Need 4 Speed buzzing walls and flying lines that’ll leave you screaming at your monitor.
In this slightly rare video interview, we get up close and personal with Robert and ask him questions such as: Who are you? What do you do? Where do you think BASE and wingsuit skydiving are going? Oh, and, what the hell was the deal with your hamster??
