We have created this "How Hydroflight Works" diagram to help explain some of the general ideas. The system is the same for all manufacturers and devices. ZR Flyboard, FlyDive X-Board, water jetpacks, Jetovator Jetbikes, etc, etc., all operate on the same basic principles. A quick list of the concepts: 1.  ...(READ MORE)

Awesome suit? Check! Sweet helmet (AND VISOR!)? Check! Flames galore? Check! Radical body armor? Check! Easy to use and fun?...Not so much :/ This new video produced by our friends at Red Bull demonstrates yet another attempt to get airborne and fly through the skies. This new contraption is just the latest iteration of the now very old idea of strapping a fuel burning pack to yourself and attempting to fly it in a controlled manner.

Olympics Fever!!! Remembering 1984 Opening Ceremony Jetpack Flight

Jetpack America Newport Beach - Wednesday, August 10, 2016

 

 

One of the Godfathers of personal flight, WIlliam Suitor, blew people's minds when they saw him fly a jetpack into the opening ceremony at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles. By his own recounting, it was an incredibly sketchy flight. In his words, "That thing literally exploded off that stage. I have never had it take off like that in my life."  The crowd was, no doubt, in awe of his flight. Witnessing personal flight seems to leave an indelible impression on us. Obviously, it is something people have been dreaming of since...well, forever! That moment in the opening ceremony of the 1984 Olympics had to be the biggest crowd, in person and on television, to ever witness a jetpack flight.

 

We are really thankful that Ray Li came into Jetpack history with his groundbreaking idea---to use water as the propellant! That has opened-up personal jetpacking to millions of people. Now hydroflight has made personal flight accessible to the masses. Take a look at the Hydroflight Jetpacks from Zapata and X-Jets and compare them to the Bell Rocket Belt that William Suitor flew in the 1984 Olympics:
