Rossy, a former fighter pilot and airline pilot, is said to be the first person in the world to have taken flight with a jet-propelled wing. He’s previously flown across the English Channel, the Grand Canyon and Mount Fuji. In 2011, Rossy raced two fighter jets over the Swiss Alps.

"Fun" and "neat" are words for when your dog balances a hotdog on his nose and then eats it. This is extraordinarily amazing beyond comprehension!!!
Just kidding, thanks for the comments.

Its just a plane strapped to their backs. Not what i would call a jetpack. For me a jetpack has to be a VTOL.
While i would tend to agree, these dont need the HUGE power to lift off which would require a HUGE amount of fuel to do, which is why they drop from aircraft to get their speed up to make the wings lift work.
