This Twin-Turbine Jetpack Just Had Its First Test Flight. Sign Us Up, We Want One ASAP
Ladies and gentlemen, the future has arrived.
Capable of flying up to and beyond 10,000 feet (not that anyone would need, let alone want to go that high) at speeds of more than 100 mph for 10 minute durations. Of course, if you weren't cruising at 10,000 feet up at 100 mph, you'd be able to fly it for a lot longer.
"We believe a JetPack should be just that – a jet turbine powered backpack that is capable of vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), is extremely light and small and can easily be carried around by the pilot. It should be powerful enough to lift the pilot quickly to thousands of feet above the ground but small enough to fit into the trunk of a car," they say on their website.
