OriginEdit

Bert Acosta was an aviator who set an endurance record of 51 hours, 11 minutes, and 25 seconds in the air with fellow pilot Clarence Chamberlin. He made one of the first transatlantic flights right after Lindbergh. He was known to perform extreme stunts such as flying next to buildings and bridges, receiving many fines and suspensions in the process. His daring pilot work continued in the late 1930s, joining the Spanish Civil War. Part of the mercenary Yankee Squadron, he flew alongside the Spanish Republican Air Force in bombing runs against the Franco regime.

EffectsEdit

The user can fly above the ground for a maximum time of 51 hours, 11 minutes, and 25 seconds without stopping. Their body can reach the speeds of an airplane, although they require protective gear to prevent muscular and nervous system impairment associated with high speed takeoffs. Although not normally graceful, they use the orientation of their limbs and torso to change direction and altitude. With time, the user will be compelled to perform more extreme stunts.
