Almost everyone has dreamed they could fly at least once in their life. Jetman made this dream a reality.
In 2006, the Swiss pilot Yves Rossy became the first and only man in the history of aviation to fly with a jet-propelled wing, and still is to this day.
From soaring over the Alps, to weaving through the Grand Canyon, to crossing the English Channel, his “jetwing” powered performance is a sight to see. Jetman can reach speeds of 150pmh, and plans to hit top speeds at the Reno Air Races this September.
The 50th anniversary of the Reno Air Races will be more impressive than ever – save the dates now!
“Air Races 3-D” is now playing in Reno/Sparks through September 20th in Cinemark Theaters.
