LEARN MORE ABOUT US: Reach us on our WEBSITE to learn more about the company and discuss business opportunities. 

Our JetPack is just the beginning of the Personal Flight revolution.  Now we need your help to expand our R&D and make it available to everyone.

The engineers at JetPack Aviation have dreamed about personal flight for years.  For us, JetPacks are the ultimate expression of personal freedom.  Buckle In.  Throttle Up.  And you’re off.  

Commuting through the air while others sit in traffic.  Delivering emergency medical supplies when every second can save a life.  Rescuing workers trapped in high-rise buildings.  Or just going for a Sunday afternoon spin around the park, soaring high like an eagle.  That is personal freedom.  And our JetPack technology is here.  It works.  It’s proven.  And it is now.  

Like the Wright Brothers at Kitty Hawk, Jetpack Aviation is standing at the leading edge of a brand new industry: Personal Flight Mobility.  And like those famous brothers, we are smashing technological barriers through hard work, creative insight, and a whole lot of R&D.  

With your help as an investor, we will continue to improve our JetPack performance, enhance our safety systems, train a new generation of JetPack users, and deliver affordable, dependable, and easy-to-fly Personal Flight vehicles for all.  

Market Opportunity

Personal flight is more than just a science fiction dream.  Today, it is a reality with numerous practical applications and commercial market potential, including the following:

  • Military. Our Jetpack technology is ideally suited for search, rescue and extraction of soldiers in danger.  Live reconnaissance, minefield avoidance, and ship-to-ship transfers are only a small example of the practical military applications for which JetPacks can be used. Jetpack Aviation has conducted several demonstration flights for the US military and we have been awarded a CRADA (Cooperative Research and Development Agreement) by USSOCOM (U.S. Special Operations Command). This agreement gives us access to the US military's best  engineers, experts, and facilities to further our R&D work.. The CRADA agreement also opens future opportunities to sell our JetPacks directly to the US armed services.

  • First Responders. Jetpacks enable firefighters to reach high floors faster and with more maneuverability. Police gain an eye-in-the sky for observation and analysis.  Disaster rescue workers can reach survivors in remote or unstable locations when roads are damaged.

  • Commuters. There’s no need for us all to sit in traffic. Some will bike, some will ride the bus, and some of us will fly. 

  • Recreation. We’re already in discussions to develop a jetpack racing series. 

It is a fact.  Our JetPack is real.  It flies.  It’s powerful.  It’s dependable.  And it is ready for commercial production.  We even have our first retail order from a private civilian customer.  

Our Distribution Plans

Jetpack Aviation is developing a network of dealers in the United States with experience selling and servicing the helicopter industry. We will produce and ship JB10 jetpack units for rental and purchase.

In Europe we have partnered with Aerostar, an aviation dealer with broad experience selling hot air balloons, fixed wing aircraft, and pilot training. Aerostar will help develop a network of local country resellers. As a global company, Jetpack Aviation has already been meeting with distributors around the world including India, China, South America, the Middle East and Russia. Prospective distributors are typically experienced companies already involved in aviation, the import of aircraft, and provide pilot training services.

Some of our best worldwide customer prospects deal in the public sector. Jetpack Aviation has already been contacted by over 500 individuals, government agencies, and military services requesting more information about our jetpack.

Buzz About Us

Why Our JetPack Is The Only True JetPack

The first JetPack was conceived  almost 100 years ago. The original unbuilt concept was powered by oxygen and methane, and included wings that were three feet long. 

Since then, many have tried and failed to build what seemed destined to remain science fiction. 

In recent years, some have gotten closer. But none have created a portable device that you can strap to your back and lift off into the sky. Until now. JetPack Aviation has the only easy, safe, and portable solution for personal flight. Only JetPack Aviation has created a true jetpack. 

With a 10,000 feet maximum altitude and 68 miles per hour forward flight speed, the JB10 can vertically lift a person off the ground from a tiny space and fly for up to 10 minutes.

The Jet Engine is a Marvel

Lift Off

Our jetpack is powered by two of the smallest, most efficient jet engines available anywhere in the world. Each engine delivers 180 LB of thrust and runs on ordinary jet fuel or diesel. This technology is key to making jetpacks a practical reality. The two specially modified jet turbine engines are controlled by a throttle synchronization computer ensuring that the thrust produced by each engine is managed equally - this system is patent pending. Additionally, the two jetpack engines have a power to weight ratio of over 7 to 1 offering 360 lbs. of thrust.

How it Works

Our specially modified jetpack engines are constructed from a single radial compressor and an axial flow turbine stage. The engines have an inbuilt electric starter motor for the start and cool down sequences. At maximum throttle our jetpack engines can spin over 60,000 rpm or 20,000 rpm at ground idle. The exhaust gas leaves the engine at about 1,300 degrees, which rapidly reduces as it mixes with cool ambient air. This process ensures the pilot experiences no discomfort in flight

How to Fly

Takeoff and control of our jetpack is made easy with our inbuilt flight stabilization technology.  Our patent pending control systems have been designed to automatically adjust for changes in fuel load during flight. This integrated stabilization and control system makes the jetpack easy to fly with incredible agility and maneuverability. An advanced computer pilot information display, fully developed in-house, provides all necessary information to the pilot. The left handle controls the spin. The right handle controls the throttle and thrust. Lean forward to move forward and gain speed. Lean back to slow down and eventually hover. Lean left and give left spin or lean right to turn.

Safety is First

Imagine carrying a tank of jet fuel on your back. Making this experience safe was one of our biggest challenges. Our design team looked at how the NASCAR racing industry cracked this problem and we found our solution. First we made the fuel tank shell out of an incredibly tough material, which instead of cracking will slowly deform.  Next, our engineers added an internal bladder, which contours the inside of the tank to minimize the amount of air remaining in the tank as fuel is used. The bladder is also extremely strong and flexible so that it resists rupturing if the tank hits the ground for any reason.

Buoyancy System

A custom designed automatic inflation system can be added to the airframe within 5 minutes for flights over water. If for any reason the jetpack hits the water, the buoyancy system will automatically inflate a heavy-duty float bag within seconds.

Fits in Your Trunk

The pilot backpack has a five point harness with dual quick release buckles for rapid, easy access. The jetpack arms fold to enable the machine to be stored and carried in a small case.

Why We Are Crowdfunding

We don’t believe you should have to be a multi-millionaire to own a jetpack and our goal is to make them affordable to the average car owner.  But improving our JetPack technology takes a lot of R&D.  It takes engineering time.  And manufacturing trials.  And lots and lots of testing and retesting.  The result is a more affordable, safer, easier to fly JetPack.  But that R&D also takes funding.  And while no individual can make a company happen by themselves, they can be a part of something big and important, that just may change the way we live in the future.

“I’d much rather have thousands of people invest a little bit then 10 people invest a huge amount. Jetpacks are a thing that appeals to everybody, so let’s get everybody involved.” - David Mayman

Which is why we are looking to raise $1 million. The funds we raise with your help will be used for research and development. Specifically:

  • Researching different versions of the jetpack to reduce the manufacturing cost

  • Developing a low-altitude parachute system for pilot safety

  • Exploring the possibility of  a flight airbag

  • Creating a training system and theme park where everyone can come to fly a jetpack

Since our inception, Jetpack Aviation has raised capital from savvy investors to efficiently design and build the JB10 prototypes. Previously, the founders invested their time and millions of dollars of their own money to design and test the JB1 through JB9 - this is not included in the investments to date.

Irregular Use of Proceeds

No intended irregular use of proceeds is reportable as none of the following examples will exceed $10,000: vendor payments and salary made to related parties, friends or relatives; any expense labeled “Administration Expenses” that is not strictly for administrative purposes; any expense labeled “Travel and Entertainment”; or any expense that is for the purposes of inter-company debt or back payments.

Our Business Plan

Jetpack Aviation is focusing on bringing the first Personal Flight vehicle to market. We plan to raise capital in multiple steps. The goal for this campaign is a maximum of $1,000,000. We are currently also raising money via in the United Kingdom.

Product to Market

Before we bring the JB10 jetpack to market, our engineers will do everything possible to ensure the safety and comfort of our customers. Therefore, our next development goal is to add a rocket-launched parachute, which will protect the pilot in the unlikely case of a catastrophic failure.

International Expansion

Our first international market will be  Europe, where we plan to develop and license multiple jetpack distributors.  We will then begin developing the Asian market.

Business Development

The new jetpack industry will generate revenue from several independent streams.  We anticipate that initial revenue will come from both individual and corporate customers looking to rent or lease our JB10 jetpacks. Simultaneously with consumer sales, we will aggressively approach the worldwide military market.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will you work with the FAA?

We are actively working with the FAA and have a good relationship with them. Jetpacks are an entirely new form of aviation, just as drones were not long ago, so it is a very exciting time. Our current JetPack is classified by the FAA to be an ultra light aircraft, and therefore no registration or pilot’s license is required. 

Can I fly one?

At this stage we are only offering training to people that purchase a jetpack. The training could be completed in Europe or California. Over the next 2 years we plan to offer training packages to people who would like to experience flying before buying as well as a one day "initial flight experience package". We will also be working with owners and operators of theme parks to add JetPack Top Gun experience centers to their existing theme parks. 

Do you have any patents pending?

We have more than 15 claims under examination relating to elements ranging from control systems to airframe design. 

Help Us Grow

Our motto is Onwards and Upwards. Everyday we take one more step up. Every day we get better. Some day people will be able to fly from home to work and back. It won’t be tomorrow, but it will be soon, and we will be there. 

Where will you be?

The future is here. Invest in it now.

Watch: Guy Flies Over Thames in an Actual Jetpack

An Australian pilot cruised casually over the River Thames in an actual goddamn jetpack on Wednesday, looking like a cross between an astronaut and the Rocketeer. David Mayman, a former commercial pilot from Australia, had been developing the jetpack for ten years with a team of engineers and designers, and is working to make a commercial version of the device available next year. And just to be clear, this was not one of those cheesy, water-propelled "jetpacks" made famous (or infamous) by Eastbound and Down-- this was an actual, jet engine-powered, honest-to-God jetpack, more like Boba Fett's than Kenny Powers'.

JetPack Aviation announces the Speeder. World's First Flying Jet Powered Motorcycle

over 3 years ago

FLYING Motorcycle Now On Sale

Jetpack Aviation Delivers Safe Personal VTOL Flight

6 March, 2018. Van Nuys, CA. JetPack Aviation, the market disrupting leader in personal flight engineering, unveiled plans today for the world’s first turbine powered FLYING motorcycle.  Dubbed “Speeder”, the compact, easy-to-fly computer stabilized vehicle is the size of a standard motorcycle and delivers unprecedented speed, lift and safety. The sleek design makes Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) possible from and extremely small footprint, and the quad turbine jet propulsion system powers flight speeds exceeding 150 mph with altitudes surpassing 15,000 ft. The Speeder can be piloted or flown fully autonomously carrying loads greater than 400lbs. Video

Speeder is the brainchild of company CEO David Mayman who also co-created the only FAA approved turbine powered JetPack. In 2015, Mayman amazed the aviation world with his first public flight around the Statue of Liberty which launched a multi-country world JetPack demonstration tour.

Building on more than ten years of turbine powered JetPack engineering, the first generation of Speeders will be powered by custom modified jet engines. Said Mayman, “today, there simply is no source of thrust that comes close to the power and speed potential of turbine engines. We know that battery technology is advancing rapidly. It is likely that small electric cells with enough power to drive high efficiency turbine fans may be available in as little as five years. When that happens our patent pending flight management software, stabilization system, and flight tested airframes will be ready and easily modified for electric propulsion.”

Speeder will Save Lives. It’s also Cool.

The Speeder was conceived with a core mission: Save Lives. Therefore the company is focusing its initial designs for both First Responder and Military rescue applications. But there is no denying that Speeder is also awesome and the JPA team will produce a modified civilian model for consumers who crave speed and excitement. These exclusive serial numbered personal-use Speeders will be allotted according to the order in which deposits are received. At press time, the company will build just 20 personal-use Speeders and is now accepting fully refundable pre-purchase deposits of $10,000. (More Info)

“The primary purpose of our new aircraft is to save lives” said Mayman. “Multiple studies have shown that for every minute saved in emergency response time, a significant decrease in victim mortality occurs. The quicker a First Responder can reach a patient in need of critical treatment, the higher the chance for a successful recovery outcome. This is true whether the medic is delivered to the patient, or the patient is transported to a hospital. The same is true for military applications. Quickly moving medics onto the battlefield and injured soldiers out of danger can be difficult and highly risky for helicopters and their crews.” The compact, rotor-less Speeder can fly faster than a drone or even helicopter and safely operate in spaces too small for a helicopter. The Speeder can be converted from pilot configuration to cargo configuration in less than 10 minutes.

Speed Saves Lives … and the small, fast, heavy-lift Speeder can be operated as an individual rescue vehicle or swarmed in a group to rapidly meet the appropriate response force needed for any unique situation. They can be deployed from and to most environments, and the advanced flight management software enables anyone to fly a Speeder with virtually no pilot training or experience.

JetPack Aviation - Investor Update

over 3 years ago

Dear Valued Investors,

It has been a long time since our last update....thank you for your patience.  We've been very busy here during summer working on the JB11 and JB12 as well as doing demonstrations flights in North America, the UAE, Japan and Europe. We're all really excited about the progress we are making and in particular the success of our JB11 jetpack and the design of our all new JB12.

The urban mobility sector is growing at a phenomenal rate and continues to attract significant investor attention.

Since our last update we have refined the six engine JB11 and made great progress on initial design and work towards a scaled flying prototype of JB12.

We are currently very focused on opening the world’s first jetpack experience center and completing the JB12 flying prototype.

Whilst many other companies are focused on electric propulsion, for the midterm we will continue to focus on turbines. Our specialty is small footprint and fast aircraft and this is only achievable with the power delivered by turbine engines. Over time this will change as energy density of batteries improves and we will be well positioned to adopt the new technology.  Most of our air frame and control systems will work with electric propulsion.

We believe that our JB12 design will open up more opportunities for us within civilian, military and independent markets.

Here are the highlights:

After a very long (but constructive process) the FAA agreed to certify our JB10 and JB11 aircraft in the Experimental Category. This is wonderful as it enables us to fly with as much fuel as we want and at whatever speed we like.  It also enables us to use the aircraft for commercial purposes (not possible under the ultralight category). We are the first turbine VTOL company to achieve this and the documentation that we've created will certainly help us accelerate the process for future iterations.

We did demo flights as part of the Red Bull Air Race series in the UAE, Cannes France, Chiba Japan and Budapest Hungary.,

Did over 10 demonstration flights at the famous Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK., 

Flew at the opening of the Formula one car race at the Red Bull Ring in Austria.


Became the Super Hot Dogger for the Oscar Myers hot dog TV commercial and conducted activation flights in NYC and Chicago.,


2019 is already heavily booked for demonstration flights.

We've trained another two company pilots at our Socal facility and Boris is ready and able to make demonstration flights.

We will be finally opening our first experience center in Southern California in Nov/Dec 2018.  For the first time it will be possible for people to come and experience what it's like to fly a jetpack. If you are interested in more information please email us at and download the brochure here: We are seeking partners interested in setting up experience centers both in North America and elsewhere.  Please get in touch via

We secured $350,000 investment from based in Silicon Valley and welcome them as shareholders. We look forward to working with such an experienced team.

Our JB12 aircraft scaled prototype is about 50% completed.  We can't give away too much information about the design at this stage because of commercial sensitivity but hope to be able to in Q1 2019.  We can however say that the flight time and payload capacity are significantly higher than our JB11.

We continue the CRADA with USSOCOM and look forward to demonstrating the JB12 scaled prototype when it's completed. It has the potential to solve a number of missions that would have been difficult with the JB11.

The UAE military have requested to visit and see demonstrations of our Jetpack. We intend to present the JB12 prototype initially. This will probably be towards the end of Q2, 2019.

We've hired a new Mechanical Engineer (Alex) and he's focused on the JB12 development.

Since the last update we have developed (fully in house) and tested a triple redundant (milspec) engine control system. This system includes 3 throttle encoders, dual wired and one wireless connection between throttle and the master engine computer. The master computer is also 4 times redundant with dual double stacked systems (one on each side of the jetpack).  Power systems are also now fully redundant so all engines can operate from one of four batteries.

Once again we thank you for making an investment in JPA and we look forward to growing an exciting and valuable business.  As always, for up to date information please check out our social media feeds.  Facebook, Instagram and Twitter:

All the very best,

David Mayman

JetPack Aviation - Shareholder Update

over 4 years ago

Greetings to all our wonderful shareholders. We have been super busy, working hard to build JetPack Aviation and continue to earn your support.  High on our list of goals is completing construction of the JB11 heavy lift JetPack and starting the flight test program.  Here are some key points summarizing our on-going activity:

  • Initial tests of our JB11 JetPack at our southern California design center are progressing well and we continue to fine tune our in-house developed flight computer systems.  We are targeting the end of Q1 2018 for completion of this test phase.
  • We now have three fully trained JPA pilots and have built three JB10 JetPacks and one JB11 JetPack.
  • After several years of effort in working with the FAA, we have finally been awarded Part 103 ultralight status for our JB10 model JetPack.  This is a very significant development for future sales. We continue to work with our local FAA office and the Washington department on the Experimental Category. JPA is breaking new ground and setting the standard for micro-VTOL aircraft.  Our team is helping to create an entirely new FAA classification, as to date there has been no such thing as a JetPack in any of the FAA aircraft certification or pilot certification programs. We thank the FAA for their vision and willingness to create a solution for our disruptive technology.
  • Our Training Program and Maintenance Inspection Program have been approved by the FAA. These are both significant steps towards our future certification. We continue to work with them on flight crew licensing requirements.
  • We recently completed five demonstration flights for venture capitalists in San Francisco and Silicon Valley as part of our current capital raising efforts.  The flights went extremely well and proved once again the stability and power of the JB10 JetPack.  We also presented the JB11 JetPack to the attending VCs and other potential investors. Everyone was extremely impressed with quality of design and originality of the engineering. 
  • On going discussions with several major technology corporations show promise of generating joint development programs on a range of exciting new micro-VTOL products. 
  • Pre-production planning with a successful European media organization for a new reality TV series in which the JPA JetPack would feature as a cornerstone technology is rapidly advancing.  Current planning is for an international release in 2018.
  • We have successfully completed a total redesign of our pilot display systems to better meet current reliability specification for military applications. 
  • Weekly invitations to fly at prominent public events continue to flood our inbox. Unfortunately, these high-visibility opportunities are usually over land and therefore must be declined until our safety systems are complete.  We are working diligently to raise sufficient funding to put this work on a fast-track program.
  • Subject to funding we anticipate beginning parachute system testing in Q1 2018.  We are working on a propriety solution that will be a first of its kind and have multiple spinoff applications.
  • Our US SOCOM Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) continues to progress.  Demonstrations were conducted on the east coast in May when seven flawless flights were executed in front of a VIP military audience.
  • Detailed designs of our NextGen suite of micro-VTOL vehicles have been completed.  The details are propriety at this point but we expect to release more information in Q2 2018.  Flight times and speeds will increase, ease of flight will be enhanced, and safety and stability will be greatly improved.
  • Expanding our presence in the sports and entertainment market, we are now working with an international motor sports association to include JetPack flights in all of their 2018 events.  This association will give our JetPacks extensive television coverage and greatly increase appeal for major corporate sponsorship.
  • The world’s first JetPack Pilot School, a JetPack Aviation exclusive, will open before the end of this year.  It will be based in Southern California and we will apply the same rigorous methodology we used to train a Navy special forces operator and our three JPA staff pilots.  We are very excited about this development.  If you are interested in learning to fly the worlds only JetPack please email us at
  • JPA has been invited to participate in the Boeing sponsored GoFly competition.  Since we have already achieved many of the competition’s stated goals, we are weighing the pros and cons of participation.

Happy July 4th - JetPack Aviation Activity Update

almost 5 years ago

Hello to all our Investors.  I hope you had a happy and safe July 4th holiday.

We have been very busy at JetPack Aviation and I want to give you an update on our activities.

Navy SEAL Demonstration:

  • This past April, we conducted a second demonstration flight of our JB10 Jetpack for the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). In addition to the demonstration flights, we had high level conversations with senior officers about other VTOL vehicles.  It was a great presentation and we are looking forward to growing our relationship with USSOCOM and the rest of the US Military.

New Pilot Training.

  • Part of our brief with the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) was to demonstrate the feasibility of rapidly training new JetPack pilots.  I am pleased to tell you we succeeded beyond our expectations in this endeavor.  Two JPA staff members (our Chief Engineer and our Operations Manager) both completed the training and executed flawless solo flights during the USSOCOM presentation.  Perhaps more impressively, our Navy SEAL liaison went from zero to 100 in absolute record time, and he too performed an impressive solo flight for the assembled military brass.


  • Our next generation JB11-01 prototype is nearing completion with test flights expected to begin this month.  The JB11-01 is powered by SIX jet turbine engines giving this next-gen JetPack significantly enhanced lifting power and greatly improved performance safety due to engine redundancy.  The JB11 class JetPacks will also be paving the way for a family of VTOL vehicles we are planning based on six and eight engine designs.

New Customers

  • We continue to receive JetPack purchase inquiries on a weekly basis from clients around the world.  Currently, we are in advanced discussions with governmental agencies in India and the Middle East to provide JetPacks for police and border control applications.  We also have a growing database of private buyers who are interested in purchasing our JetPacks.  These private buyers will be re-contacted when our low altitude zero/zero pilot recovery system is complete and market ready.

JetPack Experience Center

  • The public’s general fascination and love affair with JetPacks has never been stronger, and the number of people wanting to “try” a JetPack increases every day.  To address this very strong market demand, we have been working on a prototype “JetPack Experience Center” at which anyone can pay a modest fee, strap on an electric JetPack and give it a try.  Of course these one-time “pilots” will be JetPacking on a safety tether.  Anyone wishing to become a full fledged pilot will have the opportunity to continue lessons and step up to a full jet turbine model.  Lessons will continue until the student is proficient for a solo free flight. 

We expect to begin our first prototype training course this year.  We will also be holding conversations with interested partners wishing to franchise JetPack Experience Centers

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)

  • A coherent and practical set of FAA rules and guidelines is essential to making JetPack flight a real world reality.  To this end, JetPack Aviation has been working closely with the FAA to make JetPacks a recognized part of the Experimental Classification.  This is the first step to full integration in the FAA universe and will open the door to widespread adoption of JetPack flight and transportation.

These are just a few of the many exciting projects we are working on. I will continue to post updates from time to time.  Please visit us on Facebook ( or go to our website ( for regular news and updates. 

We appreciate the faith in us you have shown so far, and we are working hard to continue earning your support.  Together we will build JPA into a great company leading the way in personal VTOL flight.

Thanks to all,

David Mayman

New Products / FAA Regulations / Annual Report

about 5 years ago

Hello everyone.  There is a lot going on at JetPack Aviation and I am happy to give you an update.  But first, thanks to all the investors who have given us their support as we build a new industry of personal VTOL solutions.

* New Products

We just returned from a demonstration of our technologies to the US military’s Strategic Operations Command (USSOCOM).   Of course our JB10 JetPack was the proof of our engineering team’s talent, but we also previewed two new personal VTOL vehicles: The JumpJet and the SHRPA.  The JumpJet is a stand-on platform most easily described as a flying Segway.  And the SHRPA (Self Hauling Remote Payload Apparatus) is a fully autonomous flying cargo vehicle.  Together with the JB10 JetPack and our electric BladeRunner “flying car”, these four vehicles form the foundation of our Vertical Take Off and Landing suite of products.

* JetPacks

Our JB11, six-engine JetPack will soon be ready for testing.  This very exciting new JetPack will deliver considerably more lifting power, making it ideal for rescue and delivery missions.  Also, our in-house designed on-board computers will be able to instantly re-distribute turbine thrust in the event of an engine anomaly.  This will greatly improve reliability and safety.

* Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)

We continue to strengthen our relations with the FAA as we work to establish a practical set of guidelines for the commercial application of personal VTOL flight.  We are also working closely with FAA regulators to develop the technical standards for future personal VTOL vehicles.

* Annual Report

Investors are invited to review our most current Annual Report by going to and clicking on the Annual Report link.  Direct access to the report is also available here:

Undisclosed buyer pays $250,000 for delivery of production grade JB10 Jetpack

JetPack Aviation has announced the sale and delivery of the world’s first commercial jetpack.  The company, which designs and manufactures small, turbine powered VTOL jetpacks for military, industrial, and individual customers, is now offering its JB10 duel engine model at the retail price of $250,000.  Currently under contract with the US military, JPA is also receiving international government inquiries.

Company CEO David Mayman said, “We believe this sale is the definitive first step on the road to widely accessible Personal Flight Mobility.  Whether we are enabling the extraction of Special Forces soldiers, , moving emergency medics from hospital to disaster site, or commuters from home to office – JPA is focused on a wide range of vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) transportation solutions. Our JB10 is designed to be a proof-of-concept and we are already working on several other long endurance aircraft including fully electric systems”.

JetPack Aviation made its first public demonstration flight around the Statue of Liberty in 2015 with full FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) authorization. Subsequent public flights were held in London, Monaco, and Los Angeles.   JPA is also offering sponsored promotional flights for corporations and events.

Said Principal Designer Nelson Tyler, “People have dreamed of individual flight for as long as we have looked to the sky.  Now, after decades of work and thanks to our extraordinarily talented staff, the dream of personal flight is a solid reality.  

And it’s available for sale today.”

A new Soldier Vertical Mobility System  (SVMS) will merge JetPack Aviation’s VTOL technology with advanced subsystems developed by Georgia Tech.

 JetPack Aviation, the company that stunned the engineering and aviation communities with its first public jetpack flight around the Statue of Liberty in 2015 has entered into a development Agreement with Georgia Tech to design and build a Soldier Vertical Mobility System (SVMS) for military applications.

 JPA, which is currently working with the US Navy under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) will provide its proprietary jetpack technology.  Georgia Tech will add advanced electronic subsystems for the new SVMS

 JetPack Aviation senior staff recently hosted Georgia Tech team members at their headquarters in Van Nuys, CA where discussions took place regarding the development of an SVMS.

 Under sponsorship from a GTRI Internal Research and Development grant, the early development stage has focused on three specific subsystems: an autonomous control system for an SVMS, a pilot exoskeleton, and a Heads-Up Display (HUD) helmet for the pilot. This multidisciplinary effort is bringing together efforts from the Georgia Tech Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering schools, the ATAS and ELSYS labs of GTRI, and JetPack Aviation.

 After successful public demonstrations in New York, Los Angles, London, and Monaco, the JetPack Aviation team has begun an intensive development program towards extending their jetpack’s thrust and flight duration, as well as moving towards an all electric version.

 Court Bivens and Michael Mayo of the ATAS lab at GTRI have been leading the project and coordinating the integration of all subsystems into the SVMS.

 The joint SVMS team hopes to move forward by soliciting R&D funds from the U.S. military. Additional funding would enable Georgia Tech and JetPack Aviation to fully integrate the described subsystems into an SVMS and tackle issues such as survivability and reliability, electrical and mechanical infrastructure, and human factor disciplines.
