New Individual Flying Vehicle to Be Developed
A wingsuit

Russian engineers are working on an individual flying vehicle, which users will need no parachute.
      New flying vehicle looks like a Batman suit. Its main idea is a wingsuit, widely used in sky-diving, which is a jumpsuit with textile webs between extremities. Ordinary wingsuit doesnt provide landing, because it cannot be used insdead of a parachute.
      New development of Russian engineers boasts larger webs for improved stability and safe landing. Landing will be based upon cushion effect, common for landings with parachutes of wing type.
      Engineers are currently calculating optimum parameters for the suit and will soon start testing a full-scale model of the suit in a wind channel.
