Wing-diving sees aerial acrobats use special winged suits to give the impression that they are soaring through the air in spectacular fashion.
Last Sunday, Sutton posted on Facebook: "The sun comes out for a beautiful day in Chamonix, two base wingsuit flights from Brevent then a spectacular paraglide with Mont Blanc and the glaciers glistening in the background."
At the Olympics, the former Army officer stood in for Daniel Craig as his Bond character and The Queen, portrayed by Gary Connery, descended into Stratford’s Olympic Stadium from another aircraft.
Mr Connery tweeted after hearing of the accident:
"All you jumpers/flyers out there, stay safe, make wise choices and know your limits and your locations live to tell your stories. One love."
