Dean describes himself and fellow highliners as "flying humans [who] want to learn to fly even better". Potter also holds the record for the longest wing-suit flight, and is an experienced base jumper, which means he climbs up steep mountainsides, and then jumps off them to see how long he can stay in the air.
