Skydiving consultant Luke Aikins has been pretty busy the last few years with his role on Red Bull Stratos, testing parachute equipment, developing stratospheric life-saving devices and such. Now back in his home state of Washington, Luke’s getting some local attention. Read about Mason County’s skydiving celeb here.
Mr. D-21189, who is probably the most humble person you could meet, did not land a position with Red Bull by chance. He’s been working at it his entire life. It’s possible his first words as a child were “pack my rig” or “fly over there”. Who knows for sure. One thing we do know is that his list of accomplishments is so long, it’s best to summarize it all on this link.
