Britain’s Great North Air Ambulance Service sent a jetpack-flying paramedic on a simulated rescue op at the Langdale Pikes.
A mission that would ordinarily leave paramedics with a rigorous 25-minute climb to reach a hypothetical injured hiker, took Gravity Industries founder and chief test pilot Richard Browning just 90 seconds.
Testing is only in the early stages but the GNAAS is seriously considering supplementing its existing emergency response and mountain rescue teams with a jetpack paramedic.
