May 18, 2014 was truly an epic day for the Red Bull Air Force, making history by performing the first-ever wingsuit flight over the Manhattan Skyline. In the early morning hours, the Red Bull team jumped from a plane at 7,500 feet above the Hudson River, and swooped in front of the iconic Freedom Tower and lower Manhattan eventually landing perfectly on a barge floating in the Hudson River.
iDEKO Partner Evan Korn produced the flawless jump and managed the entire permitting process from conception to execution. He pulled off the next-to-impossible task of securing all necessary permits and approvals, making this historic feat a reality. It was truly an incredible day.
For this Red Bull Wingsuit flight iDEKO managed the entire process from conception to execution. This included:
securing all government approvals and authorizations, and leading all onsite production, permitting, safety logistics, staff, and talent.
The stunt generated 100M+ earned media impressions for the brand.
