‘Young Feathers’: Two Men with Jetpacks Fly over Dubai at Speeds of Over 100 MPH [VIDEO]
The age of Iron Man has arrived. Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet, the innovators behind the Jetman Dubai jetpack athletic team, created this epic video of the duo flying high above the United Arab Emirates city. The video, which is 12 minutes long, starts with the jetpacking men jumping out of a helicopter high over the desert and ends over the city of Dubai, itself along the coast.
Rossy, a professional pilot from Switzerland and leader in the field of propelled human flight, created his own custom jetpack after years of research and experimentation. Reffet is his protege and they fly high together in this video to represent their years of practice.
Although they need another aircraft to take flight, they can gain altitude and sustain flight for 6 to 13 minutes at speeds around 110 to 180 mph.
Watch the video as these two men mark a new milestone in human flight!
