Welcome to my website

A brief moment in history on rocket- and jetbelts.
If you click one of the main chapters above, it will show at the bottom of your screen, just scroll down for all the info.
This page is under construction, but fully operational. I will be back soon with a new layout.

Until then: enjoy the wonderfull World of man carrying flight!

Nelson Tyler of Los Angeles, California, inventor or the Tyler vibration free camera mount, built a Bell rocketbelt copy in
1969. He named it the NT-1.
I made many flights in the NT-1 between 1970 and 1984 after which Nelson sold the NT-1.
My most famous and my lifes most favorite being the Opening Ceremonies of the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles.

I still share technical advice with Nelson and have been known to get "talked into" flying (or trying) some of Nelsons letest inventions. Nelson and I are after moere than 40 years still closest of friends, sharing the same dream, manned free flight.

Although the NT-1 was retired long ago, Nelson at age 79 and I eleven years his junior have no intention of giving up our dreams and asperations.
