Richard Webb has been active for more than 20 years in both professional aviation and canopy sports. He holds an Aeronautical Engineering degree and multiple Flight Instructor certificates in Airplanes and Helicopters.
A nine year chapter in the US Navy flying F-14 Tomcats off aircraft carriers came to an end after buzzing an airport control tower in a brand new F/A-18 Super Hornet. After being notified that his flyby services were no longer needed, Richard was politely asked to leave the Navy.
Totally worth it.
With steady progression and extensive global exploration in the basejumping community, Richard has used his aviation and educational background as a springboard to develop a ‘smarter, not harder’ methodology to wingsuit basejumping. His deliberate use of the scientific method has enabled a prolific chapter of new and technical wingsuit exits in the American Southwest in recent years.
Richard is allergic to slow hikes, full-weight gear and rock drop measurements.
