Airline pilot reports seeing 'guy in jetpack' flying near aircraft while approaching LAX runway.
Another pilot confirmed the sighting, At 3000 feet about 300 yards away of his plane.

Well, i am thrilled about the technology, and braveness.

But not so much about his stupidity and flying in such a dangerous location.

Report and actual sound of pilots at the link:

Was just watching about this on the news. Pretty crazy. I can't wait to see what they find out. A jetpack at 3k feet is nuts.....I didn't think anyone had made anything that small that could fly that high.

Did'n a guy fly his jetpack from France to England over the north sea?

I guess when you go straight up.. it should be possible, just have enough fuel and big balls.

I recommend a parachute as well


Here it is:

Wonder if it could be to do with this ?




A BRIT who created an Iron Man-style jet suit has revealed he is in talks with the US Navy Seals and the Royal Marines about using the flying machine in warfare.

It's quite simple really. Have you ever seen a parachute at 3k feet? have you seen the guy with his jet pack flying through mountain passes? Jet pack, parachutes aint going up they're coming down. Obviously, whoever it was , had a lift up in a plane, then jumped out.

Well, didn’t you hear the smart reporter at the end of his segment? He said “Jetpacks do go up to 6000 feet, but anyone with the technology or the money to have one certainly wouldn’t use it near an airport.”

So there you go. He didn’t say why a person with money is immune to stupidity but hey that’s what he said. A reporter on the news said it so as we know, it has to be true.

Jet packs been around a long time, at least since the Robinsons got Lost in Space.

That thing was cool.

With a 10,000 feet maximum altitude and 68 miles per hour forward flight speed, the JB10 can vertically lift a person off the ground from a tiny space and fly for up to 10 minutes.


I Take it they made the Delivery lol


It is a fact. Our JetPack is real. It flies. It’s powerful. It’s dependable. And it is ready for commercial production. We even have our first retail order from a private civilian customer.

or the teather broke

The wingtip vortices would kill the jetpack flyer.......they ease down and out from the tips and last at least 40 seconds...a tornado laying on it's side.....Shirely he knew........Shirley, I say

The heavier the plane the worse....and if they have all their trash hanging out......it's the max then...

What I was worried about.

The technologies getting good too. A lot of European people into this.

And also The UAE:



Here is The English Channel crossing one's specs.


Flyboard Air, invented by Franky Zapata, allows flight up to 3,000 metres (10,000 ft) and has a top speed of 150 km/h (93 mph). It also has 10 minutes autonomy.[40] Zapata participated with his invention during the 2019 Bastille Day military parade. He also attempted to cross the English channel with his device, which succeeded during the second try on 4 August 2019.
