Episode 61: Richard Browning – The Real Life Iron Man
Richard Browning is the Founder of Gravity, a human propulsion technology startup that’s invented, built, and patented an ‘iron man like’ flight system.
This UK-based inventor has truly thrown away the rule book in building a suit powered by six small jet engines, where he pioneered his first flight in the Spring of 2017.
Richard’s dream was to reimagine an entirely new authentic form of human flight leaning on an elegant collaboration of mind and body augmented by leading-edge technology. Gravity has to date been experienced by over a billion people globally with video views alone running at more than 60m within 7 just days of launch. Richard’s vision is to build Gravity into a world-class aeronautical engineering business, challenge perceived boundaries in human aviation, and inspire a generation to dare ask ‘what if…?’.
On this episode, we learn how Richard Browning’s childhood shaped his career and how the early days inventing with his father inspired the journey to create the first ‘Iron Man style’ flight system.
