After last week’s sneak peek, JETMAN officially presented his formation and precision flight abilities to the press for the first time on July 2nd during the Breitling Flying days in Buochs, Switzerland, by flying together with and around the Breitling Wingwalkers for 3 minutes! Check out some photos here!
Now that the flight behavior and reliability tests of Jetman’s new delta wing have shown it to be much safer and comfortable to fly than all the previous prototypes… it’s time to push it a little further and see what it’s capable of!
Yves Rossy is working on a new opening system for his parachute. He’s testing a pyrotechnical system,based on a rocket which will extract the parachute at lightning speed, to improve his security. This new system should also allow him to fly closer from the ground, which means more fun for the public.
