“Jetman” flies through the Grand Canyon

File this one under “crazy”! This weekend, Breitling’s “Jetman” Yves Rossy completed a historic flight through Grand Canyon West. He was launched from a helicopter at 8,000 feet and, using the jet-propelled wing attached to his back and steering using only his body movements, he flew for more than 8 minutes through the canyon, reaching speeds of up to 190mph! To end the flight, Rossy deployed his parachute and descended to the canyon floor. Now that’s an adrenaline rush!

  1. Wow — one wrong move and this dude is toast! Do you know what turbine rating he’s using?

    1. I believe he uses JetCat turbines made specially for him.
