Welcome To The Future: Swiss Man To Make First Public Jet Suit Flight In U.S.


A Swiss adventurer is making his first public flights in the United States this summer with his custom-built jet suit.

Yves Rossy (eev RAW'-see), also known as "Jetman," is making appearances at the Experimental Aircraft Association's AirVenture in Wisconsin. On Monday he demonstrated his carbon-Kevlar jetwing with four engines.

His first public flight in the U.S. is set for Tuesday.

Rossy says he hopes to inspire people with his flight.


He's able to propel himself through the sky at upward of 190 mph, controlling his jet suit with a throttle in his hand. He can go as high as 12,000 feet.

AirVenture runs through Aug. 4 in Oshkosh. His flights will be part of the air shows during the week.
He'll also fly at the Reno Air Races in September.
