Sheikh Hamdan announces 'Jetman Dubai'

Limitless in the UAE


A former fighter pilot and Guinness record holder – known as 'Jetman' – has performed a new stunt, taking over the skies of Dubai

The Swiss national Yves Rossy has teamed up with Dubai to fly above the city with a pair of jet-propelled wings, with a stunning 4K video shot in the skies now going viral – with almost 100,000 views in less than a day.

"To fly alone is great, but to fly with another guy is greater," said Rossy, before taking part in a formation flight with Hungarian aerobatics champion Veres Zoltan in the Dubai clouds.

Rossy and his futuristic jet suit have now partnered with Dubai to keep pushing the boundaries within the realm of anti-gravity experiences. Calling his challenge a "culmination of decades of fulfilling a childhood dream through technological innovation, determination, teamwork and courage," the ex-Swiss Air Force pilot first took to the UAE skies to celebrate the country's 43rd National Day, with himself and the Crown Prince of Dubai Sheikh Hamdan announcing the new project on Instagram.
