In 2006 swiss pilot Yves Rossy became the first and only man in the history of aviation to fly with a jet-propelled wing and still is today. Years after the first crossing of the English Channel by air, the man now known as JETMAN followed the path of Louis Blériot, achieving an amazing flight that was broadcast live to 165 countries and widely covered by the worldwide press.
“The ultimate dream of flight – soaring through the air, with total freedom in all three dimensions, not within a heavy and complicated machine but with only one’s body and sensations – a dream everybody had at least once in their life. JETMAN made it real.”
