With a rich family history in Aviation, former Oil Trader & Royal Marines Reservist, Richard Browning, founded pioneering Aeronautical Innovation company, Gravity Industries in March 2017, to launch human flight into an entirely new era. This month Browning tested the ability of his JetPacks to support ship pilots and military boarding operations.

The flights were conducted over three days by the Gravity teamand 42 commando Royal Marines aboard HMS Tamar, a Royal Navy River-class offshore patrol vessel.

The Gravity JetSuit uses over 1000bhp of Jet Engine power combined with natural human balance to deliver the most intense and enthralling spectacle, often likened to the real-life Ironman.

The Gravity Team, based in the UK, has delivered over 100 flight tests & Speaking events across 30 countries including TED talks. “The team and I are delivering on the vision to build Gravity into a world-class aeronautical engineering business,” says Browning. “We are challenging perceived boundaries in human aviation, and inspire a generation to dare ask what if?

What’s next for the JetSuit? If you have a spare $8,300 you can meet with Browning and take a test flight for yourself. The company is hoping to sell these flight suits to marines and ship pilots in the future and expects them to cost roughly $430,000 each.
