Jetman sought for AirVenture

May 17, 2011 by Alton K. Marsh, Senior Editor, AOPA Pilot

Schedules seem in conflict at the moment, but EAA is negotiating with the staff and sponsors of Yves Rossy, the former airline pilot who straps a wing with four model-airplane jet engines to his back, to make an appearance at EAA AirVenture. Negotiations date back at least as far as November when EAA officials first said they were trying to get Rossy to fly at AirVenture. The chief sponsor is Breitling, which may have other plans for Rossy during the time AirVenture takes place July 25 to 31.
