It doesn’t get any better than this! Breitling-sponsored Yves “Jetman” Rossy once again pushed the boundaries of aviation by completing a fabulous flight above the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  Perpetuelle readers know that the Jetman is an airborne pioneer, the only man to fly with a rigid carbon-kevlar jetwing equipped with four jet engines.  The jet engines propel the Swiss aviator at a speed of 125-185 mph (200-300 km/h), controlled by a simple hand-held throttle.  To adjust his trajectory and his altitude, Rossy relies exclusively on maneuvering his body, shoulders and legs.  The entire feat lasted 11 minutes 35 seconds in all — culminating in a landing on Copacabana Beach.  Gotta love it!  Check him out at www.jetman.com
