We have posted about this company from New Zealand before but the latest news now is that they are going to start selling flying jet packs commercially! These real jet packs cost $75,000 which is way less than I spent in Strip Clubs over the weekend! Bargin
The Martin Aircraft Company jet packs have about 200 HP coming out of their dual propellers. They can go up to 1.5 miles [high] in the air and reach speeds of 60 mph. They will aim to make about 500 packs a year.
These jet packs were invented by Glenn Martin, who unveiled his prototype last year in July. This whole contraption weighs less than 254 lbs, so in the UK, you won’t need a pilot’s license to travel in it. It is capable of traveling 30 miles with a full tank of fuel.
