Swiss air private jet

Yves Rossy (born 27 August 1959) is a Swiss military-trained pilot and an aviation enthusiast. He is known as the inventor of a series of experimental individual jet packs , the latest using carbon-fiber wings for flight. Often referred to as "Jetman", Rossy has sometimes tested and presented new versions of his jet packs in high-profile events staged around the world.

Rossy was born in the Swiss canton of Neuchâtel in 1959. He served as a fighter pilot in the Swiss Air Force , where he flew Dassault Mirage IIIs , Northrop F-5 Tiger IIs , and Hawker Hunters . He piloted Boeing 747s for Swissair , and later for Swiss International Air Lines . [1]

Rossy developed and built a wing-suit system comprising a backpack equipped with semi-rigid aeroplane-type carbon-fiber wings—with a span of about 2.4 metres (7.9 ft)—powered by four Jetcat P400 jet engines , [2] modified from large kerosene-fueled model aircraft engines. This has led to him being referred to in the press by various monikers , such as The Airman , Rocketman , Fusionman , and—most commonly— Jetman . [3]
