Daredevil to fly over Grand Canyon in wingsuit

Posted: Updated:

A former fighter pilot will be flying over the Grand Canyon this week, but not inside a plane.

Swiss adventurer Yves Rossy, 51, is going to jump from a helicopter early Friday near Eagle Point, then "fly" westward along the rim.


Rossy has already flown his custom-made jet propelled wingsuit over the Swiss alps and across the English Channel.

We're told he's now working with the FAA and Hualapai tribe for Friday's flight.
