Wish you can fly? From tomorrow youâ€™ll get an excellent opportunity to simulate flights with George Jetson, a personal jetpack, capable of 30 minutes of sustained flight. “We’re trying to make the world’s easiest-to-fly aircraft,” Richard Lauder, chief executive of New Zealand-based Martin Aircraft Company tells Discovery News. “Our goal is to create a Segway for the sky, where the principles of flying would be very simple.”
The Martin Jetpack is made â€śfrom lightweight carbon fibre composite,â€ť and includes a â€śbackup flying system and a parachute in case of emergencies.â€ť Martin Aircraftâ€™s flying machine, defined as aircraft weighing 254 pounds or less, designed for one person, holding no more than five gallons of fuel and capable of moving at a top speed of 55 knots (63 miles per hour). The recreational-use jetpack can be yours for about $100,000.
