Jetman!

OMG! Up the sky! It's a bird, it's a plane, no, it's a guy with freaking wings!

And not just any hanglider! No, this swiss daredevil is actually a skydiver with his own unique set of rigid wings equipped with miniature jet engines!

How freaking cool is that?! I know I want a pair. That'd be so awesome...

No crash landing; he's test flown it plenty times. You just need a parachute to land. As for cost, I have no idea. He custom built it himself, and I haven't heard of anyone producing them for sale yet. Or even selling accurate plans to build yourself.

Fortunately he's a former fighter pilot for the Swiss Air Force, and also an airline pilot for Airbus, so he knows what the hell he's doing as regards flying around and not hitting things.
