BMW Electric Wingsuit
BMW i, Designworks and professional wingsuit pilot Peter Salzmann from Austria collaborated to build an electrified wingsuit equipped with two carbon fiber impellers, each powered by a 10-horsepower electric motor. These battery-powered impellers are capable of spinning at 25,000 rpm for up to five minutes and enable the pilot to fly at speeds of over 186 mph. A test flight saw Salzmann and two other pilots be dropped off from 9,842-feet. Read more for two videos, additional pictures and information.



The Electrified Wingsuit by BMW i project came about when Peter Salzmann’s wanted to take the wingsuit sport to a whole new level, as he’s a skydiving instructor by day. Unlike other wingsuits, the goal of this electric drive system is to increase the performance in order to achieve a better constant glide flight. In addition to skydiving training and wingsuit flying, Salzmann is also a television and movie stuntman.
