Tribute: the most beautiful flights of the Jetman Vince Reffet (1984-2020)

It’s a sad moment for extreme sports: Flying Man Vince Reffet died two days ago at the age of 36 in an accident at Jetman’s training base in Dubai. Vince Reffet and his flight partner Fred Fugen were the first men to fly freely through the air by being powered by mini-reactors, much like today’s Iron Men.

The impressive images of their heroic deeds are still inscribed in our retinas, such as this duo flight over the city of Dubai or in 2016 with the Patrouille de France. In 2017, the French Jetman even managed to board a plane in mid-flight! Just a few months ago, Vince Reffet took off from the Dubai port area and flew at breakneck speed (400 km / h) to the top of the skyscrapers.

Before Vince Reffet was named Flying Man, he had already distinguished himself by setting records in wingsuit or joining the prestigious French skydiving team. The few videos circulated in this article pay homage to him.
