“Lake Spring Mountain is, hands down, the best hydroflight training facility in the world! It literally has everything you could possibly need right at your fingertips. And the fact that it’s right down the road from Vegas makes it the perfect three-day weekend training and vacation weekend!”
Bruce Black
Owner - Jetpack Vietnam
"When I bought the FlyDive X-Board, I wanted to make sure I knew everything about how to fly my family safely, so the Certified Pilot course was a no-brainer for me. Thankfully, the instructors were very patient with me and they answered my thousand questions, but when I left I felt confident in how to set everything up, how to safely fly others and they even had me dolphin diving and doing spins by the end of the half-day session.”
Brian Troop
Private Owner from Simi Valley, CA
"After doing a ton of research on the hydroflight industry and deciding to sell my roofing business to open a jetpack rental center, Jetpack America was the clear choice for me, since they were one of the first rental operators in the world, so they have a wealth of experience and knowledge that you can’t find anywhere else. And the facility at Spring Mountain can’t be beat. From the lake to the condos to the tiki bar, there’s really no reason to even leave the property. When you leave, you’ll have all the info you need to open a profitable rental center. Can’t recommend this place highly enough!”
