The Jetman Dubai team athlete became famous for his jetpack stunts.

Frenchman Vince Reffet, who was part of the Jetman Dubai team and famous for his jetpack stunts, was killed in an accident while training, according to a statement.

“It is with unimaginable sadness that we announce the passing of Jetman pilot, Vincent (Vince) Reffet, who died the morning of November 17 during training in Dubai. Vince was a talented athlete and a much loved and respected member of our team. “they wrote from Jetman Dubai.
