Title: 'Jet suit paramedic' test flight in Lake District (UK)

Air ambulance crews in the Lake District could soon be joined by jet-powered paramedics, after trials showed they can locate and assist injured hikers in a fraction of the time of land-bound rescuers.

Test flight footage shows inventor Richard Browning shooting across the Langdale Pikes in search of a party of walkers simulating a casualty scenario.

Within minutes, he locates a woman and child in a search that would have taken rescuers over an hour on foot.

I think that's a bit of a stretch to find applications for a fun toy, when FLIR-equipped drones can fly faster, farther and stay aloft longer. But fortunately, he chose to fly directly to the problem from a very low altitude, rather than waste time actually searching.

Once you know where the victims are, then this might be useful to get a human onsite quickly, but filling the urge to scratch one's nose looks like a fatal mistake.

Because the jets are attached to his wrists, it means that while flying, the rest of his body weight including his backpack and jet fuel has to be supported by the strength of his upper arms. A parallel bar gymnast would be most suited for this, and it would be more difficult for a woman to fly.

He has two jets on each arm, one looks a little smaller. Is that for better balance and control?

I can see the potential but as HR pointed out it's pretty limited.

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

Can't speak to the aerodynamic design, but obviously they are attached and oriented to maximize control.

As for usefulness, yes, it could work great in treeless environments, but not only might it be far more difficult to find someone in a dense forest but landing in one could be tricky too.

A big limitation of jet packs like this is flight time. Takes a lot of fuel to support one's weight. A winged suit would be more efficient but of course requires horizontal movement to stay up. Maybe a winged suit added to this contraption capable of vertical take off & landing will be coming next.
