Jet Powered FlightStrahlgetriebener Flight
Browning usefully selected an man-made sea for his Guinness voyage of discovery last November, for the highest velocity in a body-controlled jet propulsion wetsuit. Having reached a 51.53 km/h over 100 meters at his third and last try, the camera shows him diving into the sea in a plume of vapour and fumes, with a wide smile and a bloatedlifejacket.
It consists of six microturbines, each able to deliver 22 kg of thrusts or 1,000 hp. In contrast to the fictitious Marvel characters Tony Stark, Browning is not a millionaire, nor does he reside in a villa in Malibu. After his training as a Royal Marine, an elitist British Royal Navy Amphibious Korps, Browning has retained a high degree of physical condition and runs ultramarathons.
However, he says that the costume, which comes from a person's own flight dream, can be used by anyone who is "reasonably fit". Having looked at several different drive systems, he opted for kerosene or diesel-powered natural Gas engines. Finally, he hoped to bring the car's airspeed up to about 120 km/h, although he has not yet flown at a level that requires a chute or feels less comfortable in the case of an accident than a fall from a motorcycle.
It is now on the table for $250,000 (918,000 Dh) inclusive practice, with the first sales already made.
