Sanctuary Cove Boatshow crowds flock to witness Jetpack flight + video

'After only two months in practice, Jack has learnt how to easily maneuver the Jetlev - Sanctuary Cove Boat Show'    Rosalie Taylor

The sci-fi inspired Jetlev R200 jetpack is one of the most talked about exhibits at the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show, revolutionizing the notion of flight.



Crowds gather three times daily to catch a glimpse of the gadget in action as trained pilots soar up to three stories above the water.

Visitors to the boat show can expect an impressive aerial display showcasing every element of the latest recreational watercraft.

With only two units in the southern hemisphere, the jetpack is shaping up to be the latest must-have for water sport enthusiasts.

The individual unit price of the expensive toy is 150 thousand dollars, not an amount readily available in most people's pockets.

Australian organisation Jetpack Adventures aims to create a more affordable experience through a hire service. The adventure company will charge about ten dollars per minute, bringing the possibility of flight within reach of the average consumer.

If you can't fathom the notion of soaring three stories above the water with only water pressure suspending you above the dangers of the deep, there is no need to fear, the developers thought of everything. Safety is a major principle in the design of the gadget ensuring the pilot is firmly secured in a five point harness throughout each aviation.

Chief Jetlev Pilot Jack Ellison said the machine is also environmentally friendly and economical, ticking all the boxes for prospective buyers.

The machine relies on water suctioned through the unit floating below, creating an efficient turbine system that recycles the input. 'There is so much water generated from the power plant that you could empty a swimming pool in just ten minutes,' said Jack.

'The Jetpack is just the coolest machine in the world, it allows you to fly which is obviously most people’s dreams.'

The machine is the groundbreaking gadget of the moment and crowds are raving about its success.
