The world’s top jetpack concepts
There have been many attempts to build a fully functioning jetpack, with mixed results. The concept is not without its risks, yet the sci-fi dream is slowly becoming a reality thanks to the sheer will of inventors. Aerospace-technology.com lists the world’s most innovative means of allowing people to fly.
Listed in Time magazine's Top 50 Inventions for 2010, the Martin Jetpack is the world's first practical jetpack, manufactured by the Martin Aircraft Company. It will be commercially available by 2017.
The Martin Jetpack was initially conceptualised and developed in 1981 by Glenn Martin in Dunedin, New Zealand, resulting in the establishment of the Martin Aircraft Company in 1998. The 200kg jetpack is powered by a V4 two-stroke engine, burning automotive gasoline. The aircraft will have more than 30 minutes flight length, at a maximum speed of 74km/h, achieving a top altitude of 1,000m (3,000ft).
The compact dimensions allow the jetpack to vertically take-off and land (VTOL), and operate in confined spaces that other aircraft simply cannot reach. The Martin Jetpack uses fly-by-wire technology, and a ballistic parachute system for recovery, making it one of the safest jetpacks available............
