Roughly 10 years ago I came across a video of a man who was sitting on the edge of a plane couple thousand feet in the sky. He had some type of metal wing pack on his back and then to my surprise he jumped out of the plane.
After a couple seconds of, what seemed like, free falling to his death, the wings on his jet pack unfolded and smoke started spurting out from the engine. He scooped up and started to fly. Ironman with wings. It was not Iron man though, it was Yves Rossy.
As I sat there in total amazement watching him fly, so many questions entered my mind. How can he be doing this? How does he maneuver? Is this fake? I searched for more videos and saw more videos of Yves Rossy flying. It wasn’t fake.
…fast forward 10 years…I am very honored to have Mr Yves “Jetman” Rossy on the podcast to talk about his extreme hobby and passion for flight, his current team in Dubai and what the future holds for the Jetman.
