French flier, Vince Reffet, has wowed the people of Dubai by jetting high above the city’s skyscrapers in another of his solo flights.
Skynews reports that Reffet, wearing a carbon fiber wing powered by four mini jet engines, flew to 1,800 meters (5900 feet) above sea level.
After taking off from a skydive runway, Reffet soared to his maximum height, where he performed a loop before opening his parachute and returning to the ground.
Rising 100m (328ft) every eight seconds, he achieved a top speed of 150mph (241kmh).
The flight proved Jetman’s pilots can now fly directly upwards from a standing start without the need for an elevated platform.
It is also the first time one of the company’s pilots has taken off vertically – having previously had to jump out of a helicopter at high altitude.
Controlled by the human body, the equipment enables Jetman to reach speeds of 248mph (400kmh), as well as hovering, changing direction, and performing loops.
