Celebrating human and machine collaboration, Richard browning is busy building the capability to put on a race series with these Gravity Jet suits!

English inventor, entrepreneur and speaker. Richard founded Gravity Industries and is the inventor of the Gravity Jet Suit, a Jet Suit that uses several miniature jet engines to achieve vertical flight.

Using engines on his arms to control the direction and thrust of the suit. Mr Browning’s Jet Suit has a maximum eight-minute flight time, dependent on his weight, fuel payload and weather conditions.

He wears a body armour “exoskeleton” underneath it, with fuel in a backpack and a holographic head-up display helmet that shows him engine data. The former Royal Marine reservist follows a gruelling fitness regime to boost the strength in his arms and shoulders.
