The suit comprises of a jet engine and controllers to his hands. The video was originally shared by Machine Pix. According to the user, "Jet Suit Paramedic" is a project of "collaboration between Gravity Industries and the Great North Air Ambulance Service (that) has resulted in an unparalleled test of human flight, pushing the boundaries of emergency response." The human flight took place at the Lake District in the United Kingdom.
