Originally presented on Tuesday 19th October 2021 to the RAeS Boscombe Down Branch
The RAeS Boscombe Down Branch’s named lecture event returns in 2021 with a presentation by Richard Browning showcasing the story behind the Jet Suit and the launch of Gravity Industries. Starting with a seemingly impossible vision, Richard accomplished his dream of reimagining human flight by relentless experimentation and not being afraid to learn from numerous recoverable failures. Achieving the first flight, Richard faced the arguably greater challenge of turning this breakthrough into a successful commercial empire.
Gravity Industries has scaled over four years fuelled by a brilliant team, and runs a portfolio of successful activity from international events, client training, to numerous Special Forces & Emergency Services collaborations. R&D has only ever accelerated with many new developments fuelled by a leading edge additive manufacturing team. Yet this is only just the beginning!
