Seeing This Guy Take Flight is Like Watching a Superhero Movie in Real Life
On Friday, February 14th, 2020 Jetman Vince Reffet took off, headed south towards Jumeirah Beach Residence, building speed and height.
In 8 seconds he had reached 100 meters in height.. in 12 seconds 200m.. 19 seconds 500m.. and reached 1000m in 30 seconds at an average speed of 130 knots. At the end of a 3-minute flight punctuated by a roll and a loop at 1800m altitude, Jetman Vince Reffet opened his parachute at 1500m before landing back at Skydive Dubai.
It is the first time that a Jetman Dubai pilot could combine hovering safely at a limited altitude and flying aerobatics at high altitude in the same flight.
Controlled from the ground by the human body, the equipment enables Jetman Dubai to reach speeds of 400kmh, as well as hovering, changing direction and performing loops.
