Martin Aircraft company designed and constructed Jetpack could be the new way of getting to and from the shore.
The idea of having a machine on your back that will make you fly, has been a dream of many over the years. Glenn Martin of the Christchurch organization made this dream come true, by bringing the concept from fiction to reality for around £50,000.
Martin Jet Pack consists of two 200 horsepower dual-propeller packs and due to it weighing under 115kg the pack does not require a pilots license. The JetPack is able to reach speeds of 60 mphs, heights of 2,400 metros and 30 miles in 30 minutes.
Mr Martin thinks the JetPack should be especially useful for military or paramedic services, which according to his words “could be live changing stuff”.
