    I think it would be fun to try.

    That would be great if you had no where to go and building to protect you from the wind.

    One of the pilots was a runner. Running is aerobic exercise but a one minute flight is anaerobic exercise.

    They should get a person who can bench press or leg press 2x or 3x their body weight, and a 5 speed bicycle gear shifter so the person can be matched to the load wouldn't be a bad idea either.

    Enerson weighs 120 pounds and can produce 0.6 horsepower so he puts out 3.7 w/lb.

    The 135-pound graduate student named Kyle Gluesenkamp does 0.7 hp so he puts out 3.9 w/lb.

    Me, 0.6 hp for one minute just today on a machine, so I'm at 2.7 w/lb. But I'm not 20 anymore, either. :mad: :(
