[EN VIDÉO] Planète Progrès: a world tour of innovation in 3 minutes! In a constantly evolving world, at every moment, ideas are born and take shape…
You didn’t have to wait long: the Dubai Sports Council announced to organize the Dubai Jet Suit Race, the world’s first jetpack competition. This race, the first of its kind, scheduled for February 28, 2024, is expected to welcome eight competitors using jetpacks developed by Gravity Industries. The British company promises an unrivaled aerial experience in terms of maneuverability, precision and vitessevitesse. This launch should mark a new era in air sports, and places Dubai — which hosted COP 28 and is preparing for the Olympic Gameswinterwinter 2026 — as one of epicentersepicenters from the world of sport and technological innovation… without succeeding in greening its image.
Ultra-secure Jet Suits… and polluting?
The jet suits bottled with gazgaz can be powered by biofuel, recently assured their creator and CEO of Gravity Industries, Richard Browning, at London Speaker Bureau. The fact remains that, for the moment, nothing in communications from Dubai announces measures or efforts in this direction for this race which promises to be as spectacular as it is disproportionate. The jetpacks, specially designed to ensure the safety of pilots, will have an anti-drowning feature, in addition to the measures taken to secure the competition venue, which will take place between Dubai Port and Skydive Dubai.
