Have You Always Wanted To Fly Like A Fish?April 9, 2013
Wait a second…did we just say “fly like a fish”? Actually we did and now with the availability of the water jetpack from the team at JetLev you can experience the sensation of flying and then diving all at the same time. This “jetpack” works by pumping water through a hose at extremely high pressures and directly into a pack on your back – the effect of this being that you get propelled into the air. Jetpacks aren’t exactly a new idea but they’re always restricted by the amount of fuel they can carry, which usually lasts no longer than 30 – 60 seconds.
The JetLev system uses water as its fuel so you don’t have to worry about how long you can stay airborne. The pump responsible for flying you around at 22mph is towed behind you on a tether so you’re still attached to terra firma (or terra aqua in this case). Besides just allowing you to fly 30-feet above the waters off Miami the JetLev system also allows you to take your journey underwater and experience the oceans in a way you could never have imagined before. Now you can experience our aquatic planet in all three dimensions and at the kind of underwater speeds which only mammals with millions of years of evolution behind them could hope to achieve.
You can buy your very own JetLev system for just $99,500 if you wish, or alternatively you can take one for a test drive for just $429 off Key West. You won’t need to worry about spending hours or weeks getting some kind of flight qualification for the JetLev because most people learn how to use this amazing system with less than 10-minutes of actual tuition.
If you’re looking for an amazing way to spend a few hours on a sunny afternoon, or for the perfect gift for that water lover in your family, than a JetLev R200 water jetpack will be perfect for either of those purposes.
