A 39-year-old from Malad, Mumbai, is making headlines daily because of his great jumping skills. Also known as the ‘Superman from Malad’, Sajid Chougle is a B.A.S.E. jumper, who jumps off buildings, antennas, and bridges to earn a living.

B.A.S.E jumping is a recreational sport that involves jumping from a solid object, usually less than 2,000 feet. And then, using a parachute to descend to the ground, unlike skydiving where you jump from an aeroplane.

Chougle, now has a C license, as he decided to pursue his passion instead of his regular job. So he retired in 2011 and moved to India. At that time, there was no promising aero sports community in India. However, Chougle created e-learning content for companies on adventure sports like rock climbing, mountaineering, and B.A.S.E. jumping. Seven years later he devoted his life entirely to aero sports.

The adventure junkie has successfully done free fall jumps in Goa, Himachal Pradesh, Maharashtra, Telangana, and Karnataka. While this was within India, he has gone free-falling in Norway, Sweden, and Malaysia.
