    I wonder what its classed as, ultra-light? At first I was laughing as he put on the safty harness, thinking it would never save his life. But now I see it was to keep him in the plane{faints} with his dare devil stunts.
    Wolly, you can have it, I'm staying on the ground for this one. I must admit, if I were 30 years younger, I might enjoy such a toy.

    Well, I'm impressed. It seemed quite stable. Personally, I'd like a little more wing surface.


    I also notice at least two other ready for take off.


    I'd prefer the Jet-man's (Yves Rossy) wings though. :biggrin:

    Your title misled me about the topic. All pilots 'strap on' their aeroplane. As I've said before, you don't fly a plane; you wear it. This thing is pretty cool, but there's a jet version that Cyrus mentioned, as well as one that's essentially a jet version without the aeroplane as referenced by Ivan and Astro. What it comes down to is that anything that gets you off of the ground is good (well, not landmines...).

    Or Kangaroos, would you need a twin rating for such a thing?

    Nah, you must have nerves of steel just to get out of bed in the morning. :smile:

    I don't have a problem with ultralights, but this thing seems as if a wing could snap off when he did those aerobatics.

    For a kangaroo? :confused:

    Every country has their own laws regarding licensing. I don't even know if there is such a thing as a multi-engine rating for ultralights.

    Yeah - that's the dude. I'd do that in a heartbeat! :biggrin:

    I thought about that this afternoon while flying from NY to ATL. I was just imagining diving through some of those high cumulonimbus clouds. :tongue2:

    I need to do some high altitude skydiving. :tongue2::tongue:

    These are the adventures of Supernuc!!!

    Reminds me of Robocop! :rofl:

    But he (Jean-Yves Blondeau) should not be on the sidewalk. He should be on the street - with the traffic. :biggrin:
