6000m HALO Jump from Paraglider

Herminio Cordido says he's been flying in clouds since he started paragliding in 1993. This came in handy when after a year of similar but smaller jumps Herminio lept from his harness at a staggering 6000m ASL.

He told us he wasn't worried about the climbing too high in the cloud as he knew he could jump at any time. As you'll see from the video finding his kit wasn't a problem thanks to a cutaway system which leaves his wing connected to the harness by just one break line.

His sponsors for this project were: Sol Paragliders, Squirrel Suits, Naviter, Atair Canopies, Flysight, Flyte Park and Boost Oxygen.
