Looks like hella fun, I would try it.

On another note, I would love to have that Pilatus turbo Porter he jumped out of.

looks like he uses the gas turbine engines used on RC scale jets. Makes sense since he jumps out of a plane and doesnt take off from 0 mph on the ground.

Not FAA legal as an ultralight... Probably has more than 5gal gas at least...

Jet propulsion would require a private license at least, with a high-performance endorsement, IIRC....

Although I don't know how the FAA would handle that item entirely, while the above are the rules for airplanes, is that an airplane, a powered parachute, a hang glider, or what?

Of course, ABN = falling with style, not skydiving i.e. the above...

But you do get to jump/fall out of planes and live to tell about it...
