Project Skyflash: You Will Believe a Man Can Fly

by Conner Flynn

Man wasn’t meant to fly, but we have certainly managed to find many ways to do just that. Now Fritz Unger from Germany has found yet another way to soar like an eagle.

His project is called Project Skyflash, not project “Oh my god. How do I land this thing!” He is getting closer to putting himself into the air with his insane homemade jetpack. The pack uses twin turbine engines – the type that you would normally find in R/C jets.

The goal? To launch a human 25,000 feet into the sky from ground level. It’s an ambitious project and the videos are fascinating to watch. Let’s just hope that when they do get to that height, everything goes smoothly.

It’s nice to see that in this day and age we can still dream big.
