Rocket Man Richard Browning Jetpack Paramedic
Richard Browning, nicknamed the “Rocket Man,” tested his Gravity Industries jetpack in the Lake District, UK. This invention can travel at speeds of up to 32mph (51kmph), alongside the local air ambulance service, and enabled him to rescue a hiker in just 90-seconds. For comparison, it would take around a 25-minute hike to get to the same spot. This jetpack is powered by five turbines that generate more than 1,000 horsepower with either jet fuel or diesel.

England’s Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS), which operates in areas where people go hiking through remote terrains, partnered with Gravity Industries to test this new method. The agency mainly covers extremely hilly and rocky terrain with little to no trees. Even though helicopters can fly around, landing is usually the main issue due to uneven terrain.

There are two patient types who we think can benefit from this. The first is those who need the helicopter, but those we can get to a little bit quicker,” said director of operations at the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS), Andy Mawson to Sky News.
