I think most skydivers just don’t have an interest in wingsuit flying but if offered to try this they’d do it. Flying a wingsuit is just extra cost and extra risk. I’m sure this doesn’t apply to everyone but a lot of people don’t really get the enjoyment they wanted from skydiving a wingsuit. Many do it in order to prepare for base jumping a wingsuit. In the sky, unless the cloud situation is just right, it’s hard to get sense of lateral movement as your only point of reference is the ground ~7,000 feet below you. This is one of the reasons people like to jump wingsuits in groups. It gives you something else to reference yourself against. Plus, everything is more fun with friends.
No I don’t think it’s an ad for go pro. With every camera you buy they give you a few stickers. Some people just like putting stickers on their gear. With skydivers helmets is really the only place for it. Personally, I like my gear to look clean and sleek. I think this guy just threw a few stickers on his helmet.
