JetPack Aviation is taking advance orders for its flying motorcycle called Speeder, promising delivery next year. The aircraft, equipped with four turbojet engines, a stabilization system and a collision detection system, could reach an altitude of 4,500 m and a top speed of 240 km/h. A “recreational” version that, according to the manufacturer, would not require a pilot’s license, is offered at 380,000 USD. It comes with training, a customized flight suit, a helmet and a free t-shirt … But it’s still a lot of money for a vehicle with a flight time between 10 and 20 minutes. For now, the company plans to build just twenty machines because it’s focusing on uses for armed forces and emergency services. You can preorder this flying marvel here.
