‘Jet pack’ being commercialised

A jet pack, or rather a twin fan engined personal vehicle is being floated on the Australian stock exchange. Specs include:

  • 200 horsepower engines
  • 30 minute fly time
  • altitude ceiling 1,000 m
  • speeds of around 70 km/h
  • carry capacity: 120 kg

Main purpose is first responders, presumably in hard to reach places.

The sound of the engines from a youtube video is pretty buzzy and less jet.
