“Real-life Iron Man” to fly at Farnborough Airshow

July 16-22, 2018 -- British inventor and entrepreneur Richard Browning and his team from Gravity Industries will be giving an aerial demonstration of the Gravity Jet Suit at this year’s Farnborough International Airshow.

The $250,000 Gravity Jet Suit has more horsepower than a Formula 1 car, according to Airshow organisers. Small jet engines mounted on each arm and behind the suit’s back can produce 144kg of thrust to achieve vertical takeoff and flight. Using his body as the airframe, Browning’s arms control speed, thrust and direction.

Ultra-marathon runner and ex-Royal Marine Reservist Richard Browning founded Gravity Industries in April 2017. Since then the company has grown rapidly and he entered the Guinness World Record books for the fastest speed in a body-controlled jet engine-powered suit in November 2017.

Browning’s invention has drawn comparisons with Tony Stark’s Iron Man character in the Marvel comic books and movies, where the fictional superhero builds his own armoured suit that allows him to fly.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era, coming soon…

And it will be worth the wait! The Graphic News website is undergoing a complete redesign. The new site will not only see improvements in terms of speed and user experience, but will also include many new features. For example, existing subscribers will be able to manage their accounts online via a group dashboard, and add selected graphics to lists for project planning (and which can be shared across the group).

Existing users will need to register individually - we’ll be sending instructions to our main contacts at each group and will be on hand to help you through the process, which we hope will be seamless!
