Up Up And Away With A Glenn Martin Jetpack

The jetpack has always been a much sought after invention, which as of yet no one has managed to invent a safe, secure and economical version of. In my younger days, I used to envisage a world where people would use jetpack and take to the skies, reducing the need for transportation on the roads. It is disappointing that no jetpack has managed to enter the mainstream market.
Inventor, Glenn Martin, is the latest to have a go at developing a safe jetpack product. It is not exactly a jetpack, since there are no jets involved at all. This jetpack is powered by two gasoline fuelled 200 horsepower fans, which make the jetpack incredibly loud.
The lack of flaming jets is why Martin believes his jetpack is the safest yet, also due to the fact that the jetpack comes with an in-built parachute for added security and will be standard on each version of the jetpack.
The thrill of this flight will cost you $250,000, so obviously will be out of most people's price range. Fore those who can afford it, enjoy the thrill of flight, just watch out for low flying aeroplanes.
