Angelo Grubisic Age

He is 38 Years old.

The  wingsuit designer, died on August 21 during a BASE jumping accident in Saudi Arabia. BASE jumping is a sport where athletes jump from a fixed structure or cliff wearing a specially-designed suit that allows human flight. BASE is an acronym for building, antenna, span, and earth.

Angelo lost his life doing what he loved the most, wingsuit base jumping, and we want to ensure his achievements and ambitions are known to the world and to celebrate the mark he made on all of our lives,” his family told the BBC.

Grubisic dreamed of making faster, safer wingsuits and had just won the gold medal in the British Parachuting Association’s Advanced Wingsuit competition last July. “If you’re not doing what you love, then you’re the crazy one,” he wrote on his Facebook page.

Grubisic was an Astronautics lecturer at the University of Southampton in the U.K. He was an expert in electric propulsion systems developed for in-space attitude and orbit. He lectured on manned space flight and how it impacted the human body, mission design space systems engineering, and spacecraft propulsion.

While Grubisic loved the sport of BASE jumping, he also hoped his wingsuit research might encourage students to consider engineering and aeronautics studies. “Angelo achieved a huge amount in 38 years on earth and will be missed by the many students and colleagues whose lives he touched,” Coventry University said in their Facebook post.

He also appeared in the video Higher, Further, Faster: Angelo is Born to Engineer, to show how engineers could combine their careers and hobbies.

Students and colleagues paid their respects after learning of Grubisic’s death. “A fantastic lecturer & inspiration for us all. A real-life rocketman. Fly easy up there,” one student wrote. “Fly peacefully Dr. Grubisic, the knowledge you imparted has been invaluable and will continue to be,” wrote another.
