Gravity Industries designs, builds and flies Jet Suits, pioneering a new era of human flight. The company was founded to challenge boundaries in human aviation and to inspire others to dare to ask, “What if?”. Launched in March 2017, the business secured $650,000 investment within the first two months from Tim & Adam Draper, Tim best known for his early investments in Baidu Inc., Tesla and Skype. Gravity has since closed a Series B round of $6m based on its successful revenue generation since 2017, valuing the company at $38m.
Founder and Chief Test Pilot, Richard Browning, brought together cutting-edge technology to reimagine human flight, forging an elegant partnership between mind, body and machine. This vision led to the creation of the world’s first Jet Suit (patented), achieving unprecedented manoeuvrability and control. The Jet Suit currently can perform speeds in excess of 80mph and is capable of crossing any terrain, in weather that would ground most aircraft. The company’s focus is relentless evolution of the technology and bringing this inspirational
spectacle to live audiences all over the world, in parallel scaling the numerous professional applications of this technology. Gravity has built a successful business spanning Search&Rescue, entertainment and defence applications, as well as several flight training schools, which welcome clients to experience the unforgettable exhilaration of learning to fly a Jet Suit (on a safety tether) at the world-renowned Goodwood Estate in the UK and at our locations in the US.
Gravity Industries’ extended team - made up of over 30 diverse and talented individuals, from engineers to pilots, across five different countries - has enabled the brand to be experienced by over two billion people globally to date, with video views alone running at more than 60million within seven days of launch. In the last five years Gravity executed over 260 flight events across 45 countries including five TED talks.
