It’s been quite a while since that jet pack and jetpack they are no longer part of the future. Although not at all popular in Spain, these devices are already used in all fields, including some related to competition. However, this video reminds one of the goals of this device: to help professionals reach emergency places more quickly.
A new video uploaded by Gravity Industries shows Jet Suit operation Richard Browning, its founder, in motion. But not in any way. In the video, the pilot in Browning’s Jet Suit manages to not only climb to an altitude of 1,000 meters, but he does it in brutal time: only 3 and a half minutes.
Create a route 670 meters from the starting point, forcing the pilot to cover a distance of 1.9 kilometers, as stated autoevolution. The idea is to show how this jet pack is the ideal choice for reaching destinations that are difficult to access for conventional equipment, and nothing less; according to Gravity Industries, the rescue team that had to make this trip It will take 70 minutes.
Climb the mountain in 3 minutes
More specifically, a video climbing a mountain in the Lake District National Park, in the United Kingdom. Jet Suit managed to fly to Mount Helvellyn at an altitude of about 950 meters in 3 minutes 30 seconds. The route, again, is 670 meters high and 1.2 miles long, which is 1.9 kilometers.
The video shows how this feat is not only accomplished, but also performed even in poor visibility. According to data offered by Gravity Industries, the company’s Jet Suit will leave emergency medical services helicopters. In fact, visibility is a big limiting factor, which will prevent the helicopter from moving forward. Even the drone that records the Gravity’s flight having trouble following the subject tall
It should be noted that Jet Suit, which was developed in 2016, has limitations. As an example, can only fly up to 4 minutes and it turns out that there is a part of the video that has been sped up so it won’t be too long. However, despite its limited autonomy, it can reach a height of almost 4,000 meters and is powered by five gas turbine engines producing more than 1,000 horsepower.
