Sales of jetpacks have begun, they accelerate to 193 km/h

Sales of the first JB-11 jetpack began: two models have already been bought by anonymous military customers from Southeast Asia.

California-based JetPack Aviation (JPA) has been one of the first in the world to develop long-life jetpacks for several years in a row.

The day before, the company said that the first sales of jetpacks had begun: two JB-12s had already been sold at $400,000 apiece to an anonymous military customer in Southeast Asia. The goods will be delivered in the next six months.

The JB-12 has three small Jetcat turbines on each side: they are located behind the back in a triangle shape. The JB-12 weighs 48 kg, so it cannot be simply carried on the back. Its maximum thrust will be 2.34 kN, and its maximum speed is 193 km/h.

The developers warn that the design of the jetpack is different from that shown in the films: a new development cannot be quickly put on and fly anywhere.

Despite this, the new backpack is fast, maneuverable, and can fly on kerosene fuel about 10-20 times longer than analogs on hydrogen peroxide.
