He landed on a safety net, of course.

The daredevil, who is ironically a safety and training adviser for the US Parachute Association, has been training for this jump the past two years. He said it was his friend who originally gave him the idea.

“I’m almost levitating, it’s incredible,” is what Aikins said after his epic skydive. The jump was made on a 100 x 100 feet net in Simi Valley, Southern California.
