As part of celebrations for the Guinness world record Day 2017 a new world record for the fastest speed in a body controlled jet powered suit was set.

British inventor Richard Browning has set a world record for the fastest speed in a body controlled jet engine powered suit. The new Guinness world record setting flight took place at Lagoona Park in Reading, UK. During the cause of the flight, Richard achieved an impressive speed of about 51.53 km/h.

The Iron-man styled body suit is outfitted with jet thrusters on its arms and back. Considerable physical fitness is required to successfully make use of this gear as the user is constantly pushing down against the thrust with his arms.

See a video of the record setting attempt below:


Browning founded a startup called Gravity Industries to develop and commercialize the flight device. We look forward to more progress in this space.
