He made his first parachute jump in the windy North Devon Drop Zone in 1996, jumping out of an aircraft at 3,500ft left the thrill-seeker hooked and only several weeks later was when he made his first freefall.
Initially seeking a career in Fleet Air Arm to fulfil his dream of flying the Harrier, Fraser was left disappointed when he discovered that his colour blindness made him unable to fly. With his dream seemingly fading away, Corsan proactively went out to find an alternative career choice to create a new dream. He went from working as an aerospace safety engineer as his initial career to his current role in Fujitsu Defence to keep his passion for jumping alive.
With an abundance of qualifications to his name, he has successfully completed 2,300 parachute jumps including a memorable one with the Space Shuttle Endeavour launching behind him. It was in 2000 that Corsan initially heard about wingsuits, not even a year later he was in possession of one and became one of only three wingsuit pilots in the UK.
He has since completed 1,300 wingsuit jumps, flying over 7,800 miles and he broke the record for the greatest speed flown in a wingsuit reaching 249mph. This record makes him the fastest man in the world without the use of machinery and raised over £1 million for British Armed forces charity SSAFA. At the same time, he set a European record for the highest exit from a plane 10,823metres and the furthest distance of fall at 9,741 metres.
A truly remarkable, inspirational public figure, Fraser’s ambition and extreme passion shines through in his motivational speakers, encouraging even the largest of audiences to change their mindsets for the better.
