Episode Summary

We’re back to you this week with another cracker guest! If you can remember back to our 2nd episode with Red Bull Air Race world champion Matt Hall then picture this guest as doing similar high speed, crazy stunts... but flying without an aircraft around him. This is the undisputed king of the skies. This is Becoming Mike Swanson.

Mike is a member of the Red Bull Air Force and has completed a lifetimes worth of skydiving and base jumps as well as our favourite form of air travel - the wingsuit! If you’re not familiar with wing-suiting get onto YouTube immediately and give "Mike Swanson Wingsuit" a search and we challenge you not to get addicted to watching the insane flights he experiences over some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world. If we haven’t explained it well enough, basically imagine climbing to a peak of a beautiful mountain, then jumping off wearing only a suit that makes you look like a colourful flying fox.

If wingsuiting isn’t impressive enough, Mike also took part in the stunts for the 'Transformer 3' movie where he performed a wingsuit proximity flight through downtown Chicago as well as featuring as 'Bodhi' on the Point Break Film. He also has multiple world records and world championships titles to add to his name.

So if you’re someone who is fascinated by adventure sport athletes, the psychology that make them outrageously successful and how you can take that mindset into any situation your thrown into then you’ll love this episode.

This is becoming Mike Swanson.
