Water Jet Pack: Get High with Jetlev

In case you’re wondering how this amazing flying water jet machine works, wonder no more. The Jetlev in the video you see below runs off of water. The tube you see attached to it, that goes into the water, goes into a gas powered small boat that follows whenever the jet pack pilot is flying.

The Jetlev itself is very safe and its approved for the water by the coast guard in the US, there is nothing illegal about it. You need to be at least 18 years old to fly it. It takes about 30 minutes to an hour of training, and then you’re set to.

The Jetlev is able to fly purely by the volume of water that comes out of the two hoses that are attached to it. It shoots out about 500 lb of thrust, that’s 10 times more water volume than a fire hydrant does. You can stick your hand right where the water comes out, and you won’t get hurt at all. Overall, the Jetlev is very simple and safe to operate.

It’s a bit like riding a pair of high-powered, easy-to-control fire hoses. Best of all you’ll look like some kind of unhinged superhero. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the 2011 model R200 is about 100,000 USD.
