Meet the world’s first jet-suit flying paramedic! The first test of this suit was successful, with the medic flying 90 seconds to triage a simulated victim in the UK.

The Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) partnered with Gravity Industries to test the jet-powered paramedic. The victim was set about a half an hour hike away from any passable roads. The flying medic reached her in less than 2 minutes and assessed injuries. He could not however fly her back down to a hospital. The suit cannot carry passengers yet so the medic called in a helicopter for backup. Still, a very cool use of this technology!
