US$100,000 human jetpack for sale later in 2009.

May 25, 2009

DVICE has this update about how New Zealand based company Martin Jetpack (http://www.martinjetpack.com/) have progressed quite a way since 9 months ago with a new demonstration of their jetpack. Whist it is only an indoor demo, the footage is quite impressive.

If you are thinking of buying one, you need to put up a US$10,000 refundable deposit on the US$100,000 price tag per unit. You will then have to complete at least 5 days of flight training on the unit at your own expense. Looks like if you fail the training you don’t get to buy one. Details of purchasing in the USA only at the moment, are here http://www.martinjetpackusa.com/ 

This is very cool to see this type of technology starting to become publically accessible as well as affordable. Looks like I will live to see people using these to fly to work 🙂
