Paramedics test jet suit that can fly up mountains

The world's first jet suit-wearing paramedic could be coming to the hilly terrain of the Lake District in the United Kingdom.

Using the 1050 brake horsepower jet suit, a 25-minute hike was reduced to a flight lasting just 90 seconds, according to the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS), which collaborated on the project with jet suit manufacturer Gravity Industries.

The jet suit could be a game changer given the treacherous geographical features in the area, which is popular with hikers.
