Best I can figure is that he'll have people jumping with him that'll do the guiding.
For the real deal he'll jump out with three other skydivers, one carrying a camera, another trailing smoke so people on the ground can follow his descent, the third ready to collect the oxygen tank he'll need for the first 10,000 feet of the fall.
The other three will then open their chutes at 5,000 feet, leaving Aikins alone with no one to hand him a chute in midair as has been done before.
If all goes according to plan, he will land two minutes later in a trawler-like fishing net 20 stories above the ground and only about a third the size of a football field. If he can pull it off, he will put his name in the history books as the only skydiver to go from plane to planet Earth without a parachute.
