Video: Jet Pack Flies A Mile Into The Air

Posted by on May 31st, 2011

The wizards at Martin Aircraft are on the bleeding edge of commercial jet pack technology and they’ve broken yet another milestone: sending a jet pack a mile into the air.

In this remarkable video an unmanned unit takes off from the ground while being controlled by a helicopter. It reaches 5,000 feet before coming back to Earth on a parachute.

We’ve previously chronicled the badassery from Martin when they announced a waiting list for personal jet packs and when they first tested the remote controlled models.
