Born to Engineer – Angelo Grubisic

Aeronautical Engineer And Extreme Sportsman Angelo Grubisic is always “having to push to achieve what [he] wants.” His job is to make the impossible, possible, he sees that as “what engineering is all about”

Inspired by his skydiving grandfather, Aerospace Engineer Angelo Grubisic fell in love with the high-risk sport of wingsuit BASE jumping. And he’s using his engineering knowledge to apply aeronautical principles to this extreme sport.

Angelo is developing the world’s most scientifically engineered wingsuit, capable of smashing records. For the first time ever, he and his team at Southampton University are simulating wingsuit performance and applying engineering design principals to create the ultimate suit.

His goal is to move the sport forwards and set world records for human flight: for the highest altitude, longest flight time, fastest speed and longest distance flown.

‘Born to Engineer – Angelo Grubisic’ is the latest film in a series produced for the ERA Foundation.

‘Born to Engineer – Angelo Grubisic’ is part of the “Born to Engineer” series of films produced for the ERA Foundation by Duck Rabbit as part of a campaign to attract young people into engineering education and careers.

These videos have been produced by creative video producers duckrabbit, under the sponsorship of the ERA Foundation, the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851, and the Institution of Engineering and Technology.
