Franky Zapata Successfully Crosses English Channel Via Flyboard

  • “Success comes to those who believe in themselves,” this statement is proven right by Franky Zapata of France. As on Sunday, August 4, 2019 this Frenchman created history. He is reported to be the first person to cross the English Channel flying on a jet-powered flyboard device. A few weeks back too, Franky tried his level best to cross the English Channel but was unable to do so as he plunged into the swirling seawaters. But his motivation and determination towards this goal helped him to achieve his aim. Powered by the kerosene-filled backpack, the adventure led the inventor of Flyboard Air to complete his journey of 22 mile (35.4 km) within a duration of 22 minutes.
