Good news to Ironman fanatics!
The New Zealand-based Martin Aircraft Company has announced that after 35 years of development, its Martin Jetpack will be available in the market in the second half of 2016.
With a price tag of $150,00,the Martin Jetpack can have you soaring at an altitude of 1,000 kilometers at a maximum speed of 74km/h for around 30 minutes, according to the company’s website. It can take off and land vertically and handle a maximum weight of 120 kilograms.
In terms of utility, the company says that the Martin Jetpack makes tightly confined spaces more accessible and permits rooftop landings, even in cases where the space is covered with aerials and wires. It, therefore, could be useful in search and rescue missions, particularly in cases where helicopters cannot be used.
