The future has already come. In Paris, showed a flying soldier (5 photos + video)

High technology is actively used by the military to increase the effectiveness of warfare. So, during the celebrations dedicated to the 230th anniversary of the capture of the Bastille, the latest achievements of engineering were demonstrated at the traditional parade held on the Champs Elysees. The most spectacular was the project of the inventor Frankie Zapata, which allows people to fly into the air like characters from science fiction films. The capabilities of the flying board were demonstrated by the inventor himself, who flew over the Champs Elysees with a real rifle in the image of a soldier of the future without any insurance. A device called Flyboard Air is capable of lifting a person weighing up to 127 kg into the air to a height of 1.5 km and speeds up to 190 km / h. At the same time, the flight time does not exceed about 12 minutes. The French Minister of Defense was very supportive of the prospect of flying soldiers, but he did not rule out the possibility of using the invention not only for the good of the army, but also for solving peaceful tasks. In the near future, Frankie Zapata plans to fly Flyboard Air via the English Channel. For this, refueling will be carried out right in the air.
