While we're a little obsessed with cars here at Autoblog, our sister publication Translogic has a good habit of dispensing with terrestrial transportation entirely from time to time. This is one of those weeks, where the video crew has traveled to Switzerland – not to Geneva, but to Bex – to interview the Jetman, Yves Rossy.

Rossy is the first human to fly by means of a jet-powered wing. The Swiss pilot developed the wing over five years ago, and has since flown over the Alps, crossed the English Channel, and last year flew across the Grand Canyon.

Translogic has some great aerial footage of the Jetman, who proves to be a pretty funny interview as well. See the video below to view all of it, in full HD.

      I hope that personal flight never reaches the masses. Do you really want all those morons having to deal with flying?

      Only person in the world who has done this? Perhaps Autoblog doesn't have access to google.

        Apparently, it's 189 mph max descent speed, and 124 average cruising speed.
