Recently, a breathtaking video has been shot covering ‘Jetman’ Yves Rossy and his partner soared into the skies of Dubai. They made it possible using jet-powered wings that can accelerate up to 200kph (124mph).
On Monday, the legendary aviation enthusiast Rossy introduced his protégé, 31-year-old skydiver and base jumper Vince Reffet.
Award-winning Reffet became the second person in the world to be granted the honor of flying the Jetman wings.
It was a jaw-dropping footage covering a twin human formation flight, a world record.
Over the years of his career, Rossy has used around 15 prototypes of the jet-pack, invented by him. Currently, he uses the device that weighs over 50kg (110lb), jumping out of a plane at the height of 2,100 meters (7,000 feet), then free falling to gain speed, and then starting the flight itself.
Yves Rossy is a Swiss pilot and aviation enthusiast. He is known as the inventor of an individual jet pack which uses carbon-fiber wings for flight. His flights usually last for about 15 minutes, and cover over 50km.
“Jetman is the culmination of over 20 years of innovation and has resulted in achieving my personal dream to fly free, soaring through the sky,” Rossy told reporters.
