The jetpack, which uses Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL), can land on rooftops covered with aerials and wires, and fly into tightly confined areas, making it a practical alternative to traditional helicopters.


The jetpack has a composite structure pilot module that protects the pilot in the event of accident and a ballistic parachute system that can deploy and safely recover the aircraft from only a few meters above the ground./read more: martinjetpack

The Martin jetpack can carry 120 kilograms and fly at up to 74 km/h for 30 minutes at altitudes of 1000 metres. The pilot navigates via two joysticks positioned next to each hand.
