From filmmakers Clair and August Popkin, BASE Jumping Switzerland brings you into the mind of ex-military parachutist Jon Szylobryt. He quickly fell in love with aerial sports in the military, and once his service was over he joined the University of Connecticut's skydiving team. Yes, they have a skydiving team. He competed by flying in various formations and synchronized free-falls with his team. Szylobryt has gone on to pursue BASE-jumping and parachuting all over the globe, including in New Zealand and Switzerland.
