Also, I wonder if ground takeoff is possible. It seems a drag to have to go up in a plane or jump off a cliff every time you want to fly, but I suppose I'm not too hot on being slingshotted into the sky every time either.

I don't think that this is really flying. What is happening is that this device has slowed the pilot's rate of descent and increased his speed over ground.
