Sean Chuma is one of the best aerialists in professional BASE jumping. As an instructor, he's spent countless flights performing acrobatic maneuvers that he attributes to his love of Superman. “I always dreamed I was Superman as a kid,” Chuma says, “I always thought I could fly and always dreamed of flying.” So when the opportunity arose to pursue flight, Chuma jumped at the chance and never looked back.
