JackPack Aviation has built the world’s first flying jet pack, the JB-9, built by arguably the world’s top rocket belt and jet pack flight team engineers on the planet. Australian entrepreneur David Mayman (seen in the video) is the world’s first person to provide viability of a personal flying device, and we see him strapped in and flying across the Hudson River in New York City.

The JB-9 is vertical takeoff and landing powered by two state-of-the-art turbine engine jets and has been under development since the early 1970s. The cutting-edge personal flying device reaches heights greater than 10 000 feet, speeds greater than 100 mph and flies longer than 10 minutes.

“We believe a JetPack should be just that — a jet turbine powered backpack that is capable of vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), is extremely light and small and can easily be carried around by the pilot. It should be powerful enough to lift the pilot quickly to thousands of feet above the ground but small enough to fit into the trunk of a car.” -JetPack Aviation

The JB-9 is approved by the FAA and US Coast Guard as well and small enough to carry around on your back, fit in back seat of your car while boasting enough power to fly you thousands of feet high.
