That would be really hard to do in my house.
Besides, I'm not into gratuitous thrill-seeking or jumping out of
still functioning aircraft.

I just sent a jumping spider through a dry fishbowl arch at my house on a tiny paper airplane!

Turns out it's not that hard!

ECP,, never having been in a wingsuit (outlawed bitd) , can they hit "bubbles" and have radical drops or changes in those canyon winds?

Ron, the last I checked they are still subject to the laws of physics and,
having almost a zero aspect ratio, their flight envelope is pretty tightly
constricted. The good news is that with such a high wing-loading factor
they actually are a little less susceptible to 'bubbles' and 'pockets'.
They are still crazier than hens' teeth IMHO.
