Iron Man is already among us! Richard Browning, founder of Gravity Industries, showed the British military the futuristic JET SUIT. The presentation of a new modification of the jet suit, “which defies gravity,” took place at The Army People Conference.
The role of Tony Stark was taken over by Richard Browning, inventor and CEO of Gravity Industries. At Farnborough Airport in Hampshire, UK, a new Iron Man took to the air and hovered over the heads of startled spectators. He then rushed high into the sky, then landed on the hood of a car, then on the cab of a truck, then on a balcony with spectators.
How does JET SUIT work?
Richard Browning calls his personal aircraft the first in the world. Its operation is provided by five gas turbines, which allow a person to rise to an altitude of 3500 meters and move at a speed of 130 km per hour.
Now his own iron man, and more than one, can appear in the British army. After all, the aircraft is planned to be used to move the military in the combat zone.
Gravity Industries also previously tested their jet suit over Plymouth Sound with the Royal Marines of Great Britain. Such an invention will help military and civilians to move easily in mountainous areas and over water bodies.
Can anyone experience the magic of flight?
Maybe not everyone, but a person with money will definitely be able to fly at jet speed. The Gravity website has a service that allows anyone to experience the magic of a JET SUIT for £ 2,400.
True, the lucky one is allowed only three runs on a tethered flight training rig of a jet suit. However, perhaps everyone dreams of trying on the role of Iron Man.
It all started with a childhood dream …
It is worth noting that Richard Browning had previously served in the Marine Corps himself. Where he began to seriously think about creating a jet suit and knapsack. But about flying, as in comics and in movies, Sir Browning dreamed of as a child.
His father was an aviation engineer and pilot, and his grandfather ran Westland Helicopters in the UK. As a boy, Richard was making glider models with his father and was sure that the day will come when he will be able to achieve a new form of flight and take off without the help of “intermediaries”.
This is how the childhood fantasies of the young inventor became reality. After all, we live in such an amazing time when even the wildest dreams can become our everyday life.
