We are getting ever closer to a real life Iron Man suit. The Jetman pilot Vince Reffett took off from the runway of Skydive Dubai, which marked the first time a Jetman pilot took off from the ground rather than an elevated platform.
The team reached a major milestone above the deserts of Dubai – the Jetman flew at an altitude of nearly 6,000 feet. You can see them start from a stable hover and then shoot up straight into the air, where they complete some impressive manoeuvres and sharp turns.
In this week’s Tech Tuesday segment on Smile 90.4FM we chat about Jetman Dubai and their efforts to transform us all into Iron Man. Listen down below.
