Title: PROPULSION SYSTEM AND DEVICE FOR A PASSENGER
Abstract:
The invention relates to a propulsion device (30) comprising a platform (31) that is arranged so as to accommodate a passenger (U1, U2) and cooperates with a thrust unit comprising a main nozzle (32), advantageously oriented from the bow to the stern of said device (30), and two secondary nozzles (33A, 33B) that are lateral and are positioned essentially at the bow (31P) of said propulsion device (30). Said secondary nozzles are mounted so as to be mobile about a transverse axis (AT) so as to be moved by actuators (35A, 35B) controlled by a processing unit (37) that implements a method for controlling said secondary nozzles (33A, 33B), thus providing automatic control assistance to said passenger (U1).
