Talk by Richard Browning

Richard Browning, Chief Test Pilot and Founder of Aeronautical Innovation Company, Gravity Industries.
Launched in March 2017, the dream was to reimagine human flight with an elegant partnership between mind, body and machine, exploiting leading edge technology. This vision lead to the creation of the Gravity Industries Jet Suit.
Gravity has to date been experienced by over a billion people globally with video views alone running at more than 60m within seven days of launch. In the first 12 months Gravity executed 46 flight events across 16 countries including four TED talks.
Richard and the team are delivering on the vision to build Gravity into a world class aeronautical engineering business, challenge perceived boundaries in human aviation, and inspire a generation to dare ask ‘what if…’.
