Since 2016, inventor and entrepreneur Richard Browning has dedicated himself to one ambitious mission: creating the perfect jet suit. The ‘real-life Iron Man’ founded Gravity Industries in 2017 to develop, test and produce his suit. In his first record attempt he hit a top speed of 32.02 miles per hour and in November 2019 he set out to smash that record with a more advanced version of his unique suit.
Before his attempt, we spoke to Richard about his journey to creating his suit and the changes he’s made to help him in his record attempt. He also spoke of his plans for the future, which include selling suits to enthusiasts (it takes just a day to learn how to use them) and even the possibility of a racing series.
