Jetman Dubai in collaboration with XDubai has released a teaser for upcoming documentary "LOFT: The Jetman Story" where Jetman pilots are seen performing stunts in scenic Norway.
Jetman Dubai, the brand behind the first man in history to independently fly using a jet-engine powered carbon fibre wing, together with action sports brand XDubai have released a new teaser that touches upon the next chapter of the Jetman story.
Released today on XDubais YouTube channel, the four-minute teaser for upcoming documentary, LOFT: The Jetman Story, shows a Jetman Dubai pilot launching from the ground, a mountain top in Hellesylt, Norway, a progression from Jetman Dubais earlier helicopter launches.
Showcasing the surrounds of the Sunnylvsfjorden fjord in Norway, the teaser shows Jetman Dubai pilots Yves Rossy, Vince Reffet and the newest addition to the team, Fred Fugen, perform various stunts including a triple Jetman flight formation.
Currently in production, the documentary is directed by Anthony August, an American film director, writer and producer who has been working with Dubai Film and Jetman Dubai since 2013. The film is being produced by Perch Pictures in association with Dubai Film.
As with earlier Jetman Dubai feats, and as set to be revealed and detailed in the wider documentary, safety was, and is of the highest priority. Jetman Dubais newly appointed Director of Operations, Alan Gayton, said: Given both the vision and nature of Jetman Dubai, the expertise and professionalism of our pilots and what we are trying to achieve, safety will always be our top priority. We are truly excited about the future of Jetman Dubai and look forward to sharing even bigger, more beautiful stories and feats to Jetman fans the world over.
Jetman Dubai pilots and French action-sport athletes, Vince Reffet and Fred Fugen, notably secured a Guinness World Record for their BASE jump with XDubai from the worlds tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, in Dubai in 2014.
Joining the Jetman Dubai team has been an absolute dream and its hard to put into words the experience of what was accomplished in Norway, said Jetman pilot Fred Fugen. Were excited for what this means for Jetman Dubai and were excited to share whats next when the time is right.
“It was a teamwork,” said Jetman pilot Vince Reffet. Everyone involved from both a technical and filming point of view were experts in their jobs and we trusted them. It is because of this that we could achieve what we did.” Along with the upcoming documentary, Jetman Dubai will also launch a new website in early 2019.
