The new Swiss flying sailboat that may change the market
The TF35 flying sailboat is the first of its kind, says class manager Bertrand Favre. The Swiss-made foiling catamaran, which made its successful debut on Lake Geneva last month, will launch a whole new market, but only for those with at least 750,000 euros to spare, not to mention the 500,000 per season to maintain it.
Switzerland’s “Jetman” wants to turn us into a “flying species”
Swiss pilot Yves Rossy is back in Switzerland after some years based in Dubai.

Before he gets new sponsors, the next step is to take his invention outdoors. Now all he needs to do is improve the safety features to “turn humans into a flying species.”
