Rocketbelt convention

The International Rocketbelt Convention is taking place at Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station, Niagara Falls, New York on August 11-12 2007, 09:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.

Rocketbelt test-pilots, builders, and enthusiasts from around the world will be in attendance.


Original Bell Aerosystems Rocketbelt Pilots Harold Graham and William Suitor will recount their humorous and harrowing tales of the early 1960s when they traveled the globe, demonstrating the world's first personal propulsion system, invented by Bell Rocket Engineer Wendell F. Moore. In the spring of 1963, Rocketbelt Pilots Robert F. Courter, Jr. and Peter L. Kedzierski flew before a million spectators at the International Aviation and Space Exposition in Paris, where they were hailed as "The Bird Men." Current day rocketbelt builders will tell how to build your own rocketbelt, and display their own creations. There will be a rocketbelt static test demonstration, and on Saturday and Sunday morning, GoFast! Rocketman Eric Scott will open the Airshow with actual JETPACK flight demonstrations.
