Next Airing:

Some think of Dean Potter as a real-life superhero. He can climb the unclimbable, visualize the invisible and fly through the air with the greatest of speed. As perhaps one of the world's best BASE jumpers, he set the record for the longest flight in a wing suit. Now, Dean has set his sights on Mount Bute - a 9,000-foot granite launch pad along the British Columbia coastline. But before Dean can literally take the plunge, he has to prepare his body and develop a new wing suit.
