Yves Rossy just completed his flight over the Grand Canyon.  He jumped out of a helicopter at 8,000 feet (2,440 meters) and soared over the Canyon at 205 mph (330 km) for eight minutes before deploying his parachute. Rosy said after completing this flight: " My first flight in the US is sure to be one of the most memorable experiences in my life, not only for the sheer beauty of the Grand Canyon but the honor to fly in sacred Native American lands."  


Inventor and former Swiss Air Force fighter pilot, Yves Rossy, had already jumped from a plane over Calais, France and flew 200 mph crossing the English Channel in 13 minutes before landing in Dover, England.  Before that in 2009,  he unfolded the wings on his back and flew 186 mph (300 kilometers) above the Swiss Alps. 


Using four small jet engines attached to his carbon wings, he climbed at 200 ft per minute before executing a series of stunts for a crowd of reporters watching from a mountain top. The spectacular demonstration was the first public revelation of his latest invention, which he spent five years developing. "It is absolute freedom" says Rossy. The inventor says his 120 lb "Jetman Suit" will eventually be available to the public but it's still a few years away.
