A video of two people flying over Dubai’s landmarks using the innovative Jetman wings next to an Emirates A380 superjumbo jet has gone viral on social media, marking a historic moment for Jetman Dubai and for aviation globally.
VIDEO Yves Rossy, a former Swiss fighter pilot now based in Dubai, was the first man in history to fly using the 55kg custom-built suit strapped to his back, which he created following a few experiments in his garage for over 20 years. The sport is now being promoted by XDubai, an entity aiming to promote action sports in Dubai, who has partnered with Rossy, Gulf News has reported. The gear allows Rossy to fly up to a height of 4,000 metres for 10 minutes over Dubai’s skyline with a speed of 260km/h. His protégé, Vince Reffet, is the second person in the world to earn the distinction of flying with the innovative Jetman wings following five years of training by Rossy.
