Jetman Dubai – real name Yves Rossy - and his protege, Jetman Vince Reffet “explore the limits in the city of dreams” as seen in this fascinating video.

"The real dream is to be completely free" is the tagline of the video, which begins with a little boy dreaming of flying while moving a toy plane around. The clip then changes to views of the desert and a SkyDive Dubai helicopter dropping the two men.

Next we see the duo zooming around over the sand thanks to their impressive jetpacks. At times they are moving in perfect unison, twisting and turn as they are filmed for the incredible video (which has so far rack up over a million and a half views on YouTube.

Viewers then see a man doing yoga in front of the sunset before the short film moves on to see Jetman himself speak. In between shots of the Dubai skyline are played. Most notable appearances come from the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab and the Palm Jumeirah.

Fans of their incredible journey even get to see what happens in the run-up to the stunt; from their suits hanging up in a storage facility to them boarding the aircraft.

Again, viewers on the video-sharing website see them diving and soaring around areas such as Downtown Dubai – coming scarily close to buildings at times. From above, side-by-side or below, anyone’s bound agree its jaw-dropping stuff when watching the action.
