How does the jet wing work Yves Rossy?
Rossy performs a thorough pre-flight check with a crew chief who helps ensure the four engines are ready to go. The size of the wing keeps Rossy from actually getting inside an airplane or helicopter, so Rossy stands on the skid as it carries him to altitude.
Why does Yves Rossy want to fly with wings?

What engines does jetman use?
The Jetman weighs 330 pounds, has two JetCat P400 engines (which are built for model planes) with eighty-eight pounds of thrust power. Depending on conditions, it can hit between 160 and 190 MPH. The Jetman comes out of the vision of Yves Rossy and his protege Vince Reffet.
Can human fly with artificial wings?
Humans will never fly by flapping our arms with wings attached, says Mark Drela, Terry J. Kohler Professor of Fluid Dynamics in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. The arms and chest of a human do not have anywhere near enough muscle mass to provide the necessary power.
