Angelo’s achievements included: 


  • Leader of the Icarus World Record Wingsuit Project. The aim of the Icarus Project is to develop the world’s first scientifically engineered wingsuit to break current records and set additional world records for human flight. These records include the highest altitude and highest speed wingsuit jump, whilst traveling furthest total distance in the longest ever wingsuit flight.

  • British Wingsuit Champion 2019

  • Research Scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab in California where he worked on gridded ion thrusters and development of ion energy analysis experiments in order to establish the influence of cathode design on high energy ion production in gridded ion thrusters and hollow cathode microthrusters.

  • A PhD in Electric Propulsion and All Electric Spacecraft from the University of Southampton.

  • Electric propulsion consultant engineer with Qinetiq – Working on Solar Electric Propulsion system (SEPS) on European Space Agency’s BepiColombo mission to Mercury. Mission launched in October 2018.

  • The BepiColombo mission will perform a comprehensive study of Mercury, including characterization of its magnetic field, magnetosphere, and both interior and surface structure. It was launched on an Ariane 5 rocket on 20 October 2018, with an arrival at Mercury planned for December 2025, after a flyby of Earth, two flybys of Venus, and six flybys of Mercury. Therefore a part of Angelo will always be out there orbiting Mercury and pushing the boundaries of science and technology.

  • Founder and Director of Flux Engineering a space consultancy focusing on design, development and consultation in advanced propulsion systems for commercial and scientific spacecraft. 

  • Jet Suit Pilot #002 and Chief flight Instructor for Gravity Industries, still holding the altitude and speed record in a jet suit without wings. 


  • Lecturer of Astronautics at the University of Southampton with research specialising in electric propulsion systems development for in-space attitude and orbit control.
