A man took a spin across the Hudson River and around the Statue of Liberty on a jetpack last week.

After a decade of trying to design a lightweight jetpack, Australian entrepreneur David Mayman’s dream of becoming a “real life Ironman” came to fruition on Nov.3, according to a statement from his team at JetPack Aviation. 

Mayman flew the JB-9 jetpack, which is “powerful enough to fly thousands of feet” above the ground, in a loop around the Statue of Liberty.  The New York trip was approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and U.S. Coast Guard, according to the statement.

In the video uploaded to YouTube, Mayman casually flies over the Hudson River.

Mayman designed the jetpack alongside Hollywood inventor Nelson Tyler. The pair spent millions of dollars and years designing the device, according to the statement.

“It was an incredible experience, one I have been dreaming of since I was a young boy,” Mayman said in a statement. “We have just proved that personal flight is a reality, it’s here, and we will stay at the forefront of this.”
