Breitling Watch 'Jetman' Flies Above Mount Fuji

Breitling ambassador Yves 'Jetman' Rossy has completed his first flight in Asia, flying above Mount Fuji using his jet powered carbon-Kevlar wing.

Rossy flew above the iconic mountain peak at up to 185mp/h. "Flying here for me is a dream," Rossy said. "It is such a contrast flying free with just a wing on my back, compared to being enclosed in a cockpit as an airline pilot. It is hard to describe the emotions and feeling of having an opportunity like this, it's spiritual, it is immense. I am the lucky guy who gets to do this, but I hope I can motivate the next generation of forward thinkers to do something different, to strive and achieve their goals… even if it seems impossible."


The flight was arranged as part of activities to mark the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relationships between Switzerland and Japan, and follows the Breitling Jet Team's recent tour.

"Breitling, a watch brand synonymous with aviation, is pleased to support these outstanding achievements," the Swiss watch brand said.
