This guy has got to be insane.
Such bravery is unbelievable.
Such stupidity is monumental.
Wow!

A 20 minutes (estimated)  duration rocket pack with turbine blown air ducts.
120 kg. Envelopes the pilot.

Mechanical complexity is unbelievably high. The odds of catastrophic failure
seem an almost certainty.

As I'm reading that, I don't think the air coming out is heated by
combustion.
I think it's a cold-air ducted-fan system, which is fascinating in and of
itself.
