OSHKOSH (WKOW) -- A Swiss adventurer is making his first public flights in the United States this summer, including in Wisconsin, with his custom-built jet suit.
Yves Rossy, also known as "Jetman," will be at the Experimental Aircraft Association's AirVenture in Oshkosh.
Rossy uses a carbon-Kevlar jetwing with four engines. He's able to propel himself through the sky at upward of 150 mph, controlled by a throttle in his hand.
He had a private flight over the Grand Canyon in 2011 and had numerous demonstrations in Europe.
AirVenture runs from July 29 to August 4 in Oshkosh. His flights will be part of the air shows during the week.
He will also fly at the Reno Air Races in September.
