Have you ever seen anyone swoop the length of TWO football fields? Well, now you have. Nick Batsch set a new distance world record of 222 meters (730 feet) with Icarus Canopies’s (by NZ Aerosports) new swooping machine, the sexy JPX Petra 69, during the 2011 PD Big Boy Pants event at Mile-Hi Skydiving Center in Colorado. In case you need a reminder of Nick’s trial jumps with Petra… it’s faaaast.

I don't know what the hell I'm doing, but I love skydiving (surprise!) and I eat pastries to increase my wingload.
