Dubai is all about bling and style but what do you do to stand out from the crowd when you are in one of the most stylish cities of the world, you take the competition to the skies like Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet did. The Jetman with XDubai have released a new video and this just might be the best from the jet-packing Frenchman. The video may be over 11 minutes and that’s a long time to spend for someone and something that you may never end doing but you need to watch the video below right now.

Why are you still reading this? Well, if you insist then let’s get to know the pioneer behind making jetpacks a reality rather than a figment of fiction writer’s imagination. Yves Rossy is an internationally acclaimed pilot who has pushed the limits of what is possible for human flight for over a decade now. He featured in Season 18 of Top Gear where Richard Hammond raced against the Flying Man in a rally-spec Skoda Fabia along with several other videos over the years.
Flying along him over Dubai is his protege, Vince Reffet who is a four-time Freefly World Champion. The video has over 11 minutes of pristine Dubai skies being used as a playground along with a look at the technology that made the video possible. The jetpackers have a few strategically placed action cameras placed on their helmet and wings to capture the exhilarating feeling of being a man who can fly.
