Back in September we looked JetPack Aviation’s successful attempt to fly the first jetpack in Europe. Now JetPack Aviation now has its sights set on a different type of record. It has created a public competition to allow one civilian to become the World’s First Civilian Jetpack Pilot and you can apply below!
The prize includes; a Jetpack Flight in Los Angeles, dinner with JetPack Aviation founders David Mayman and Nelson Tyler and $1000 in travel vouchers.
Please be aware that Born to Engineering is not running this competition and we are not directly associated with either the competition or Jetpack Aviation.
Like anyone interested in Engineering we love all things Jetpack related, and are simply sharing it.
Want to learn more about the science of Jetpacks?
If you find yourself about to fly a Jetpack, knowing a little about the physics behind them might help you fly it. Jetpacks work on the same principle as a rocket (Newton’s 3rd law).
Youtuber Derek Muller (aka Veritasium) looked at how they work back in 2013, be sure to watch his video below.
