Personal flying machines, landing in 2016 – Get your Own Jet Pack!

Martin Aircraft has announced that it will begin selling its manned jetpack in the second half of 2016 for about $150,000.

Coker told Reuters:

I think the first responders will see that as a massive improvement to their capability. So, for example, in the fire services going around to look at the situational awareness of what’s going on, perhaps through water security or even search and rescue on beach patrol, something along those lines.

Naturally for the ambulance service getting to a point of importance of rescuing people in the shortest possible time. So there’s a lot of uses within that first responder environment. - Jetpack

The company believes that the jetpack’s ability to fly into tightly confined areas and land on rooftops covered with wires make it a practical alternative to traditional helicopters.
