Gravity Industries Jet Suit Cliff Assault Test Flight
UK-based Gravity Industries has been testing its 1000hp jet suit for the past several years, and recently, they demonstrated how it could be used for remote rescue operations by performing cliff assault maneuvers. This isn’t some prototype, as anyone with $462,000 USD can purchase one, but as you’re about to see, it definitely takes quite a bit of training to master, since it can fly at speeds of up to 85mph at a maximum altitude of 12,000-feet.



When properly trained, first responders can fly to rescue injured hikers stuck on the top of mountains in a mere 90-seconds, rather than 25-minutes at best on foot. The suit can be powered by jet fuel or road diesel which, through its five engines, generates enough thrust to lift a human off the ground. A pilot then controls it by altering the direction of your arms, which is also known as vectoring.
