Evolve Part 1 – Mt Everest
At the age of 21, Rex made history by becoming the youngest Australian to climb Mt Everest. He then went on to climb the highest mountain on each of the seven continents, the famous 7 summits.
Evolve Part 2 – From the mountains to the sky
The next chapter of Rex’s evolution occurred high above the clouds, as he took up skydiving, and then transitioned to wingsuit flying. Transforming from being an expert in one sport to a beginner in another is a significant challenge. Despite the odds, Rex rose to the top of the wingsuit world and now competes at the world championships. The keys to Rex’s success were his passion, his intense focus and being very particular about managing risk.
Evolve Part 3 – From parachutes to jetwing flying
In such a competitive landscape it’s hard to differentiate, so Rex knew he had to evolve and think outside the box.
As a result Rex put together a team to create something completely unique. Alongside a team of dedicated innovators Rex designed, built and tested a jet powered wingsuit.
The X-Wing is a one of a kind carbon fiber wingsuit powered by four turbine jet engines. The wing allows Rex to sustain flight just like an aircraft. Rex and his team are now at the cutting edge of human flight technology and are continually evolving into the future.
