Humanity is about to have the first jetpack in history, with speeds of up to 320 km/h.
According to Daily Mail, JetPack Aviation is the first jetback (jet engine) design and sale unit in the world. The company advertises its products as “ground breaking personal flying devices” – a fantasy dream that has come true.
Not only that, in 2019, JetPack Aviation also planned to organize the first jetback race in the sky. The company has just released a video recording scenes of two jetback test pilots to “speak out” about the bold tournament. JetPack Aviation has conducted a series of tests over the past 12 months to prove that two jetpack wearers can fly close together without being injured.
In the video, CEO David Mayman and experienced pilot Vladimir Jarry both flew over a lake in southern California, USA. The two pilots happily interacted in midair before flying back in the opposite direction. “We flew up and down many times, and proved that the flyers could be together, just a few centimeters away, unharmed”.
“We also tested many different positions, such as a jetpack above, a fly under. The results show that the jetback is working well, as long as it doesn’t break the airflow horizontally.”
These tests are essential to ensure the upcoming tournament is safe. Mayman CEO said: “We are very excited. This is the first time in the history of jetpacks that can fly together. We have done a great amount of testing and now is the time to start the tournament”.
In the early months of 2019, JetPack Aviation will invite qualified teams to participate in the test. The proposed Jetpack must reach 320 km/h. And each team will need at least 3 jetpacks to join. In the future, JetPack Aviation even wants to explore air sports like Quidditch (the “football” of Harry Potter magic world created by writer J. K. Rowling).
However, if the audience wants to monitor competitions with jetback, then they have to prepare a button to wear, because now the device still emits a noisy noise as when the fighter passed by.
