The future is here. Yves Rossy, nicknamed “Jetman” is one of the few in the world to be able to fly with a jetpack (a portable jet pack enabling the user to take off, to propel and land autonomously) and he has to again proved Monday by unveiling new images .
The 11-minute video and high definition shows the performance of Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet (his young protege), flying at Dubai in a ballet which seems perfectly orchestrated. After a workout in the desert, the two men we see flying embark above the most populous city of the United Arab Emirates, among the skyscrapers.
The images were shot by GoPro cameras attached directly to the two men who fly to nearly 200 km / h . The result is astonishing.
Yves Rossy had become known in May 2011 when he flew his first jetpack above the Grand Canyon at a speed of around 300 km / h. The inventor and Swiss airline pilot of 55 years has continued to increase since flights. In 2014, he had already flown in the Dubai desert with aerobatics champion Zoltán Veres .
