A group of wingsuit pilots gather at Tianmen Mountain in China, the birthplace of the dream of human flight, to attempt an intimidating feat

A group of wingsuit pilots gather at Tianmen Mountain in China, the birthplace of the dream of human flight, to attempt an intimidating feat — flying through the sacred site known as Heaven's Gate, an archway carved out of the mountain. As Jeb Corliss drops from a helicopter and soars toward the opening, nearly a half-billion people hold their breath.

Nic Good started as a cameraman with a taste for outdoor adventure and has been involved in the adventure documentary industry for almost 2 decades when he started Fresh Air Crew to shoot and direct a mountaineering expedition to Patagonia.
