It’s time to welcome the Martin Jetpack which set to release in late 2010. It is powered by a specially designed 2.0L gasoline engine producing 200hp and capable of traveling as far as 31.5 miles or up to 8000 feet. The aircraft’s ‘FAA Ultralight Classification’ negates the need for you to get a Pilot’s licence. The reason supporting this is the built-in ballistic parachute bedded in to help in times of gas exhaustion and mid-air stalling. The product site mentions that it is expected that early orders for sales to private individuals will commence in late 2010 with an estimated price expectation of approximately US$100,000.
