Yves Rossy is a Swiss military-trained pilot and an aviation enthusiast. He is known as the inventor of a series of experimental individual jet packs, the latest using carbon-fiber wings for flight. Often referred to as "Jetman," Rossy has sometimes tested and presented new versions of his jet packs in high-profile events staged around the world.
In December 2006 (in Bex, Switzerland) Rossy became the first to successfully fly horizontally for six minutes using four jet engines and wings strapped on his back. He was quoted as saying: "The idea is to have fun, not to kill yourself".
Since 2007 Rossy has conducted some of his flight tests from a private airfield, Skydive Empuriabrava, in Empuriabrava (Girona, Costa Brava), Spain.
In May 2008 Rossy made a flight over the Alps Mountain Range, reaching a top speed of 304 kilometres per hour (189 mph), and an average speed of 200 kilometres per hour (120 mph).
Fast forward to 13 October 2015, Rossy and Vince Reffet, wearing jetpacks, deployed from a helicopter flying at 5,500 feet (1,676 meters) and flew in a choreographed demonstration with an Emirates Airbus A380 cruising at an altitude of 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) over Dubai. The flights were documented by the use of helmet-mounted cameras and third-party videos released in early November 2015. The videos show the pair soaring and diving around the airliner, flying in formation with it for about ten minutes.
Rossy says "My wish would be to share the wings with everybody but currently it's too complicated and too dangerous to give this equipment to everybody. Even experienced skydivers say "no" when you ask them if they want to try the wing, because there are other forces involved. It's really not so safe for everybody; you need be able to react, not lock up, and manage risk regularly. As a former fighter pilot I did learn that"
The Jet Wing price is around 130,000 Euros [about US$148,260] it's basically a very nice car that you have on your back.
The JETMAN DUBAI Jet Wing is far and away, one of our most popular items. People can't seem to get enough of it.
