British Inventor and entrepreneur, Richard Browning, soared into the record books when he made the fastest ever speed in a body-controlled jet engine power suit.
The founder and chief test pilot of Gravity Industries achieved a speed of 32.02mph (51.53 km/h) on his third and final timed effort over a lake in Reading, England.
Richard said: “It is a very special moment every time we suit up, it’s about 45 kilos, you really know you’re about to do something as the engines starts pulling up, it starts to build, you can sense the energy and the moment the ground leaves your feet and you’re actually in the air it’s a pleasure and a joy.”
