After reading this article from Popsci website about the Wingman Yves Rossy. Anything is possible, he can fly using this homemade jet-fueled wingsuit. Currently the jetpack can fly him to 22 miles distance, not bad at all. Seeing this picture at the left, is a big improvement to the previous aero design. Technology is helping us achieve the impossible.
"A few minutes ago, we're told, Rossy jumped out of a plane 6,600 feet above Cap Gris Nez, on the French side, unfolded the composite wing on his back to its full 8-foot-2-inch span, and hit the thrusters. Assisted by four model-size jet engines and a slight tailwind, he should be screaming toward us at 134 mph, about a mile above the Channel. "It's quite exciting to have half the world's media here," says a local television reporter. She exaggerates, though it's true that this spectacle is being broadcast live to 164 countries by the National Geographic Channel." (2009, Popsci.com)
