New Zealand company Martin Aircraft Company Limited has developed the first practical jetpack. No pilots license needed, but instead the company gives lessons when you buy one. Comes with a built in parachute for safety in case of an engine failure during flight.
The Martin Jetpack is capable of 30 minutes of flight at 60 mph and 8,000 feet, which is more than enough for your commute. It doesn’t technically require a pilot’s license, and has just two primary controls: left joystick controls pitch and roll, right joystick controls yaw and throttle. It runs on standard automotive fuel, too. The cost? Only about $100,000, and the first 10 units should be delivered sometime this year.
