What's crazy to some is controlled chaos to others. Alex Polli,a wingsuit flyer and base jumper, isn't afraid of the kinds of daredevil stunts most people would be terrified of.

According to Polli, the scariest thing is not jumping because that "would not be living."

He flies all over, including through a 2013 banner to ring in the new year with his friends, and he once jumped out of a helicopter and flew through an arc cave on the side of a mountain – at over 250 miles per hour.

In a recent interview on Edging the Xtreme, Alex Polli talks about his life, his need to fly, and the what it takes to b calm under extreme conditions.
