On July 2nd, 2010, during the Breitling Flying days in Buochs, Switzerland, Yves Rossy presented his formation and precision flight abilities by flying together with and around the Breitling Wingwalkers.
After jumping out of a Pilatus PC-6 at an altitude of 3,500 meters (11,483-feet), Rossy made his way down to two Boeing Stearman wingwalker biplanes, which were waiting for him at an altitude of 1,000 meters (3,280-feet).
Rossy flew alongside the Breitling Wingwalkers for more than six minutes separated by distances of only a few meters.
Pioneering Rossy is also the first man to fly across the English Channel using a home-made jet-powered wing.
Since his attempt for the first intercontinental jetpack flight from Morocco to Spain, Yves had been developing and testing a fast extracting pyrotechnic parachute and a lighter and more powerful jet-propelled wing.
The new “delta wing” is designed to allow take-off from the ground and provide more freedom to realize aerobatic maneuvers.
