JET-MAN

If you've ever wanted to fly, without a plane, watch this. Quite possibly the coolest thing I've ever seen on the net. Trust me...watch it.

That's amazing and really cool !
I don't think this discipline could be opened (like parachute jump) for any possible fun customer. :D
I certainly need a lot of self control.

I wondered the same thing. I noticed it took two people to load it on the plane & the jet-man seemed to struggle a bit to get strapped in. Took a special landing technique that looked a little awkward as well. But I'm guessing you wouldn't notice the weight so much when you are actually flying it.
@ hika: No way that sort of thing will be open to just anyone. I'd guess it takes an experienced "traditional" jet pilot who is in good shape & very mentally prepared for something like this! 8O
