Why this is a big deal?

Actually this a brand new concept using Turbojets.

The jetpacks most people are familiar with can only fly for less than a minute.
The problem with the Yves Rossy's jet wingpack is that it cannot do VTOL flight and you have to jump out of a plane to start it up (kinda like the X1) .

Expensive fun for 10 minutes for a no perticular useful task, very few normal persons will have the money to buy it for year and years.

fun to watch and probably fun to fly though.

With that kind of lift time, I'd fly over water too :D

Also... this is worth a watch too... Jetpack to Winged Jetmen flying in formation with an airbus over Dubia. Now that WOULD be fun!

... A light aircraft is an aircraft that has a maximum gross takeoff weight of 5,670 kg or less. Like you're safer on a big bike than a scooter.
