Jet suit inventor delivers letter to Isle of Wight in style
03 September 2019
Richard Browning wore his Iron Man jet suit to fly from the mainland to the Isle of Wight to hand deliver a letter.
Founded by British entrepreneur and inventor Richard Browning, human propulsion start-up, Gravity’s ‘Daedalus’ suit breaks into an entirely new aviation category that has been likened to superhero Tony Stark’s Iron Man.
Richard Browning quickly soared into the record books with a new Guinness World Record for ‘fastest speed in a body-controlled jet engine powered suit’.
Now, he has donned the suit to fly across the Solent, almost a mile trip from Lymington to Fort Albert on the island, to hand deliver a letter. This trip is the furthest ever undertaken in the suit.
