Miles is an accomplished canopy pilot with more than 7,200 skydives and 5,500 BASE jumps. In 2005, he set a BASE jumping record by launching 57-times in a single day, climbing a total of nearly 29,000 vertical feet and performed a record setting 737 BASE jumps in one year. In June 2017 he reclaimed this record by completing 63 BASE jumps in 24 hours. Miles also created two new sports skyayking and rope swing BASE jumps.
Miles has been a professional parachutist since falling in love with canopies in 1995. He is a member of the Red Bull Air Force, a specialized team of expert pilots. Miles is experienced in demonstration jumps, Hollywood stunts, aerial camera work, coaching, motivational speaking.
Twin Falls, Idaho, home of the I.B. Perrine Bridge, has been his home for the past decade where he coaches Miles D's BASE camp, trains for stunts and jumps for fun. "It's a magical thing when you fly in the sky," says Miles Daisher.
"3-2-1...See ya!" Miles has been able to excite crowds around the world with the anticipation of what happens after those few words. Demonstrations have included building BASE jumps such as the Eiffel Tower at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, an indoor jump at the Gaylord Hotel in National Harbor, MD., and his specialty skyak jumps at events with large spectators and crowds.
Red Bull Web Series, Miles Above is a two-season web series featuring Miles and the Red Bull Air Force. Other commercial projects have included Degree Men "Masters of Movement" and the Barrel of Monkeys stunt for "Iron Man 3". Miles and his craft have appeared on The Today Show, Good Morning America, Discovery Channel, Night line, Carson Daly and many more.
Sharing the dream of BASE jumping is the next level for Miles. Miles D's Base Camp teaches first jump courses, advanced courses and big wall flying in Europe. Learn to pack a parachute, BASE jump and land like an expert. All courses require experience under canopy (skydiving or paragliding). Miles is also a Next Level BASE Instructor.
Miles' outlook and passion for life is a breath of fresh air. Moving frequently because of growing up with a dad in the US Air Force had its lessons in life at a young age. Choosing to follow his dream of parachuting and going against the grain of the "typical" career path had its challenges to overcome. However, believing in himself has led to having more BASE jumps than any other individual making him one of the top athletes of his sport. Adventures across the world while raising three kids and being a husband lends to many inspiring stories and fascinating journeys that captures the attention of any audience.
