This speed flyer gets dangerously close to the edge.

Peacefully gliding through the mountains of Southern France, Jamie Lee obviously got distracted by the stunning views.

It results in him having a very close shave with the cliff edge.

Luckily Jamie did not get hit and was quickly able to land himself without getting hurt!

Jamie said: “I’ve never flown into one of the cliff edges, but I’ve had some close calls.

“I was about half a metre away from the cliff edge.

“When the terrain allows it, if there’s smooth grass of snow, I can happily skim the ground with my feet.

“I never feel like I’m flying too close because I try to fly within my skill range and always respect the terrain.”

Speed flying is a new sport for daredevils which combines paragliding, parachuting and skiing
