Hello, my name is William "Bill" P. Suitor, former Bell Aerosystems rocketbelt testpilot.
From 1964 to 1970 I travelled all over the World for Bell demonstrating the rocketbelts as well as flying and testing numerous versions of rocket powered flying machines including all POGO's, the flying chair and the Apollo Lunar POGO
rocketbelts. Retired, but active in pilot training, test flying and as a technical advisor and lecturer on personal rocket transportation devices. In my limited spare time a proud Grandfather of 14 always answering questions, and an Award winning wild life artist and wood worker.
I have made over 1000 flights in 14 different types of rocket powered flying machines.
Some of my most famous where the opening flight of the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, and flying as Sean Connery's stunt double in 007 Thunderball (next year 50 years ago!)
Enjoy my website, and take a tour thru the different chapters.

Sadly I would like to inform the Rocket Belt World of the untimely passing of a member and good friend of the Thunderpack Rocketbelt Team. On Sunday May 5th 2014 Eddie Andreini was killed in a crash at a air show in California while flying his Stearman biplane, he will be missed by all who knew him, a finer man has never climbed into a cockpit. There are numerous articles for those who wish to read them on the WEB listing all of Eddies accomplishments and his contributions to aviation.
