AMAZING STORY… REALLY A JET MAN
Around since 2015,Jetman Dubai’s ‘Jetwing’ personal aircraft has been an awe-inspiring projectthat’s given us hope we might one day live out our dreams of flying through thesky like Iron Man. However, up until now, they’veonly launched from elevated platforms or aircraft. Now, they’ve hit a newmilestone with a record-setting flight in the video you can watch below.
For reference, the carbon fiber quad-turbine Jetwing has somepretty impressive stats — including a 31-mile range (in just 15 minutes), a topspeed of over 250mph, the ability to fly at altitudes of over 20,000 feet, anda pair of onboard action cameras (including a 360-degree one). But what’sreally special about its newest achievement is that it took off from astandstill on the ground and launched to over 3,000 feet in just 30 seconds — afeat never before accomplished by any other jetpack. At this juncture, thecompany has no plans to make a production version, but we’re not ruling it outafter this groundbreaking event.
