Felix Baumgartner's Biography

Felix Baumgartner is a keynote speaker who tells audiences about his world recording breaking Austrian skydiver, daredevil and BASE jumping experiences.

In 2012 Felix set the world record for skydiving an estimated 39 kilometres (24 miles), reaching an estimated speed of 1357km/h, becoming the first person to break the sound barrier without vehicular power on his descent.

These achievements were part of Felix’s most recent project, Red Bull Stratos, in which he jumped to Earth from a helium balloon in the stratosphere on 14th October 2012. As part of this project, he set the altitude record for a manned balloon flight, parachute jump from the highest altitude, and greatest free fall velocity.

Felix is also renowned for the particularly dangerous nature of the stunts he has performed during his career. In 2003, Felix became the first person to skydive across the English Channel using a specially made carbon fibre wing. Baumgartner also set the world record for the lowest BASE jump ever, when he jumped 29 metres from the hand of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro.
