Jetman Dubai gave no further details and Dubai police did not immediately acknowledge the incident.

 

Reffet made name for himself in the world of BASE jumping, skydiving, and wingsuit flying, and was a pioneer of the emerging industry of jet winging.

 

Reffet had BASE-jumped off the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building at 828 meters (2,716 feet) in Dubai, setting a world record. He earlier earned gold medals while competing as a free-flying skydiver on a team and competed as an extreme athlete sponsored by Red Bull. His parents were also skydivers.
