Jetman dies in training accident

A French stuntman who became famous for using jetpacks and carbon-fibre wing packs has been killed in a training accident in Dubai.

Vincent Reffet was part of the Jetman Dubai company.

At this stage information about the accident has been kept confidential. However, an investigation into the death is now underway.

Reffet was the child of skydivers and had performed numerous stunts throughout his career, including BASE-jumping off the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.

He also became well known for his flights with Jetman Dubai. These stuntmen use special equipment that allows them to fly at speeds of up to 402km/h.

Reffet’s exploits often went viral on social media, including one occasion when he jumped from a mountain into a moving plane.
