Aikins did the preparation of around 18 months for this jump and earlier the idea was to wear the parachute during this jump, but later he jumped without the parachute.
It is believed that Aikins changed his mind just before making his world jump. He told the media that parachute would have made the jump more typical and dangerous as it would affect my position to jump he approached the net.
