Jet Pack Speed Record

By Evan Ackerman

The Martin Jetpack we showed you last week isn’t technically a jetpack, but Jetpack International has the real thing, and they’re confident enough with it to start trying to break airspeed records. This is not especially difficult to do, considering that jetpack airspeed records don’t really exist yet, but when you only have 30 or 40 seconds of fuel, you have to make sure and remember to leave yourself enough time to slow down. Having said that, 30 or 40 seconds worth of fuel is easily enough time to get me to the grocery store and back at 60 mph… I just have to root around under the couch cushions for a quarter million dollars.
