Video: Jet Pack Flies A Mile Into The Air

Tuesday, 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.
