The world record holder for the fastest speed flown in a wingsuit, Fraser Corsan is a revolutionary figure that has pushed the boundaries of limitations and defied common belief. Making his first parachute jump on static line from 3,500ft from a cold and windy North Devon Drop Zone in 1996, it was the initial jump that had him hooked on flight and several weeks later he made his first freefall, thus igniting a passion for freefall that would ultimately lead him to successfully fly wingsuits. A moment that had been a lifetime in the making for Fraser Corsan, if you are looking for an inspirational figure that has taken his passion to become a record breaker, be certain to hire him for your next event through the Champions Speakers agency.
It was evident to anyone close to him that from a young age, Fraser belonged in the sky and was longing to jump! Seeking a career in the Fleet Air Arm to fulfil his dream of flying the Harrier, agonisingly for Corsan having passed selection he was unable to fly when he discovered that he was colour blind. A major setback that could well have put many a person of course in life, what made Fraser so special was his ability to find an alternative. Since his initial career as an aerospace safety engineer through to his current role in Fujitsu Defence; developing new Business in the Air domain, Fraser has kept his passion alive jumping as much as he can.
With multiple freefall qualifications under his belt, Fraser Corsan has completed over 2,300 jumps to date, including one with the Space Shuttle Endeavour launching behind him in 2000. Having initially heard about wingsuit flying in late 2000, by early 2001 Corsan had acquired his own wingsuit and was one of three wingsuit pilots in the UK and about 15 globally at the time to be flying them. Having completed in excess of 1,300 wingsuit jumps and 7,800 miles flown later; Fraser was taking on the challenge of a lifetime, travelling to the USA and Canada in May 2017 to make 2 jumps and to break four wingsuit world records and raise £1 million for SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity.
Despite Fraser’s years of experience and qualifications, these world record breaking attempts require specialist skills, dedication and months of intensive training in a custom-built wingsuit built for speed and manoeuvrability. Whilst also addressing the challenges presented by extreme cold and the lack of Oxygen and low ambient pressure. Fraser has worked closely with the UK Armed Forces his entire career and is passionate about lending a helping hand to SSAFA in the work they do supporting the Armed Forces, veterans and their families.
