Interview with “Jetman”

Nov 16, 2011 9 Comments by

Strapped to a jet-powered wing, Yves Rossy is the Jetman — flying free, his body as the rudder, above the Swiss Alps and the Grand Canyon. After the short video shows how it works, Rossy shares the experience and thrill of flying, outside an aircraft.

    My husband is 91 and been in aviation all his life. You have finally made his dream come true. Flying like a bird. What a wonderful pioneer and person you are. If he was younger he would be first in line to have you teach him.
