Esta no es ficcion.

No, but it's a great way to die. Last time I looked at one of these the flight time was something like 20 seconds. Very little fuel capacity. Looks like these guys jump out of an airplane to get started, which helps. But they didn't show landing, which must be by parachute.

And as everyone knows, Dubai is the home of teenaged oil billionaires with money to burn.

I didn't say I wanted to try it.

The footage of them flying near a passenger airliner is ill-advised on so many levels.

In these days of YT viral videos the Darwin Awards have a surfeit of candidates.

I would stay away from the Icarus brand (that's the one with Elton John in the logo).
