+VIDEO Europe had its first sight of the JetPack JB-10 in action at last week’s Monaco Boat Show. Founder of the company and pilot of the JetPack, David Mayman, flew from Monaco’s heliport and over the sea of the Port of Fontvieille.
The event was staged by Aerostar Monaco, distributor of JetPack Aviation’s products in Europe.
Aerostar President Alain Cruteanschii said, “After decades of planning and ten years of intense hands-on engineering, and millions of dollars of personal investment, JetPack Aviation co-founders David Mayman and Nelson Tyler have invented what could be considered to be the most technically advanced personal flying machine ever created.”
The JetPack JB-10 is light enough to be carried by one person, small enough to fit in a standard car, and dependable enough to make flights of up to 10 minutes. It will reach a speed of 60mph.
JetPack Aviation says the JB-10 has a wide range of potential applications and commercial uses. Co-founder and chief engineer Nelson Tyler said, “It would be wonderful if one day our Jetpack opens the door to a vast new industry of affordable personal air transportation with applications for search and rescue, law enforcement, disaster relief and recreation.”
