Jetman flies high above Dubai in breathtaking flight - VIDEO

French flier, Vince Reffet, has wowed the people of Dubai by jetting high above the city's skyscrapers in another of his solo flights.

Skynews reports that Reffet, wearing a carbon fiber wing powered by four mini jet engines, flew to 1,800 meters (5900 feet) above sea level.

After taking off from a skydive runway, Reffet soared to his maximum height, where he performed a loop before opening his parachute and returning to the ground.

Rising 100m (328ft) every eight seconds, he achieved a top speed of 150mph (241kmh).

The flight proved Jetman's pilots can now fly directly upwards from a standing start without the need for an elevated platform.

It is also the first time one of the company's pilots has taken off vertically - having previously had to jump out of a helicopter at high altitude.

Controlled by the human body, the equipment enables Jetman to reach speeds of 248mph (400kmh), as well as hovering, changing direction, and performing loops.
