Yves Rossi is Jetman. He’s not an actor playing a superhero. He is the real thing. His super-power? Flying. With his 4 reactor-powered ultralight carbon wing, Jetman can reach speeds near 300 km/hr. He has no steering mechanism other than moving his body left or right.

But he has flown across the English Channel, above the Grand Canyon, next to airplanes. The sky is – quite literally – the limit for Jetman. We sat down with him to talk about wings, the Myth of Icarus, Iron Man and the Man above the clouds.

(Yves Rossi was recently featured on Good Morning America.)
