Flying with Wing Suits

The closest thing a human can get to flying like a super-hero, is wing suit flying.

If you think they're still dropping like rocks, Alvaro Bulto, Santi Corella and Toni Lopez flew for 12.7 mi over the Strait of Gibraltar on June 23, 2005, after jumping from an aircraft at an altitude of 35,000 ft.

Watch the amazing video below. Though I guess it still requires an healthy dose of insanity to do this stuff...
