Watch jetpack pilot Vince Reffet set a new altitude record in Dubai

Watch jetpack pilot Vince Reffet set a new altitude record in Dubai 1

The feat was accomplished last Friday, when Jetman pilot Vince Reffett (protégé of well-known jet daredevil Yves Rossy) took to the skies from the runway of Skydive Dubai, marking the first time Jetman pilots have taken off from the ground, instead of an elevated platform. Reffett traveled at an average speed of nearly 150mph and hit top altitude in just 30 seconds. He used a parachute to land safely on the ground after a flight of around three minutes.

According to the Jetman team, its next goal is to stage a safe landing without the need of a parachute, but even getting to this juncture involved a lot of work. Reffett undertook at least 50 prep flights and practiced over 100 takeoffs and landings with a safety system in place to make sure things went right.

“We are so happy we achieved this incredible flight,” Reffett said in a statement. “It’s the result of extremely thorough teamwork, where each small step generated huge results. Everything was planned to the split second, and I was overjoyed by the progress that was achieved.”
