Jet Man

Jet Man Yves Rossy

Yves Rossy (born 27 August 1959) 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.

Developmental flights

  • 2008, Rossy made a flight over the Alps Mountain Range
  • November 2009, Rossy attempted a crossing of the Strait of Gibraltar, hoping to be the first person to fly between two continents using a jetpack. Rossy was forced to ditch into the sea; picked up (ten minutes later) by his support helicopter
  • 5 November 2010, Rossy flew a new version of his jet-powered flight system and successfully performed two aerial loops before landing via parachute
  • 7 May 2011, Rossy reportedly flew above the Grand Canyon in Arizona
