JetLev-Flyer Water Jet Pack Facts

With summer here, watersports are always the rage to add some fun, action packed adventure to your holidays. Now, if you’re a water junkie and want something a little bit different to your normal water activities then brace yourselves as I introduce to you the JetLev- Fly Water Jet Pack.

If you’re thinking that this is just another fancy word for a jet ski then think again! This invention by Designer Ramke can reach an altitude of 10 metres, a top speed of 30mph, and travel almost 200 miles before it need to be refuelled. Not bad hey?

Unlike other jet packs we’ve seen on the market, the difference between this one is that it runs on water…so how does it all work? Well, a 4-stroke engine mounted on a float is used to pass water through a 10 m (33 ft) long flexible hose and into the jet pack. There, two powerful jets of water are sent out and the user is propelled into the air, moving at a speed of up to 30 mph.

The JetLev-Flyer Water Jet Pack took nine years to develop, which included years of rigorous testing before the product was ready for production, so it is no wonder that it is retailing at around £160,000. Even though this water adrenalin gadget might hold a very hefty price tag, I can only begin to imagine the 200 miles and 30 mph of full throttle flying water fun I could have with this water gadget!
