The first "Rocketwoman" in the world to fly in a Rocket Belt!
Isabel Lozano from Cuernavaca, México at the age of 29 flew a Rocket Belt for the first time on Aug. 11, 2006. She was the first woman in the world to do so and the event was witnessed by millions of TV spectators.
This Rocket Belt was custom-built for her by her father and it started by doing a plaster mold of her body to make the carbon fiber corset. The rocket engine also was customized for her weight.
All the pilots that have flown a Rocket Belt start tethered until they have become accustomed to the feeling of the controls. Only then can they fly free because the Rocket Belt can be difficult to control and requires a lot of practice to master it. To give you some idea, Harold Graham, the first Rocket Belt pilot in the world flew 36 tethered flights before his first free flight. After that flight he did 25 free practice flights before he did his first public flight.
See the Media, Publications and News pages to see the different TV programs and documentaries that will be broadcasted around the word in programs like Discovery Channel, "These Amazing People", ProSieven TV, BBC, News and interviews.

You can see how stable is the flight and how she has total control of the jetovators that actuate vertical axis spin control. Thanks to this unique design, this Rocket Belt is the easiest of all rocket belts to fly.
In her second flight she reached an altitude of 18 feet with total control.
In one of the TV programs you will see how the power setting was to high and she flew pass the limit of the tether making the safety cable a loose loop but she maintained the control in a stable flight.
