Franky Zapata, the flying man, at the Paris Supercross
The FlyBoard Air inventor, Franky Zapata, was on show at the Supercross in Paris. He was flying for the first time indoors.
Many writers have imagined it, Franky Zapata did it. He invented the FlyBoard Air, this machine that allows him to fly, anywhere.
This kind of motorized skateboard is the result of many years of research. It was finally approved for the flight recently. Five small jet engines allow a person of up to 100 kg to fly.
The machine carried out tests at 130 km / h, at a maximum altitude of 150 meters high. But it could go up to 3,000 meters in height.
Many organizations are interested, whether for commercial or military purposes.
