This is going to be huge. To celebrate Luminato’s 10th anniversary, BASE jumpers from Team FX will be performing 10 breathtaking freefalls from the Hearn’s 215 metre tall smokestack (700ft). These daring jumps will be conducted by a team from Ontario and Quebec, featuring Lonnie Bissonnette, Bertrand Cloutier, Anthony White, Scott Stevens and Evan Dickinson, who will be flying red and white parachutes for this historic event.
BASE is an acronym that stands for four categories of fixed objects from which one can jump: buildings, antenna, span, and earth. It’s an unbelievable and rare spectacle to witness. Due to the lower altitude of the jumps, BASE jumping is considered more dangerous than skydiving. The Hearn’s smokestack will offer an up-close view of the jumpers’ freefalls, parachute openings and descents.
Team FX has jumped and represented Canada all over the world and are ready to show Toronto this mind-blowing, adrenaline-pumping sport.
