Nate Sinisgalli - Flight Center Manager
Hi, I’m Nate. I’m the Manager of Jetpack America San Diego. I’m originally from Bend, Oregon and moved to San Diego about 5 years ago in search of warmer waves and weather. I started at Jetpack America in 2013 and quickly realized that it was a company worth staying at. I’m extremely fortunate to be working alongside a wonderful staff that prides themselves in their customer service and will do anything to make each customers experience an unforgettable one. Not only is the Jetpack America team set on providing a great experience, but they are some of the most talented and selfless employees that I’ve had the pleasure of working with. If you’re looking for a fun, safe, and unforgettable experience, give us a call.
Jon Statman - Certified Flight Instructor
Hey, I’m Jon! Originally from Southern California, I moved back to San Diego from Oregon a couple years ago in search of blue skies and sunnier weather. I’ve always been passionate about flying, and I do it as much as I can, in every way that I can. I’m a skydiver, indoor skydiving instructor, and best of all, a jetpack flight instructor!I’ve been with Jetpack America for a little over two years now, and it’s the best job I’ve ever had. I love teaching people to fly, and seeing the huge smiles on their faces when they’re finished. Knowing that I have even a small part in the great experiences that people have with us is an awesome feeling, and flying isn’t bad either!
My favorite thing to do on the jetpack is a new trick we created, the downward cork. But the best part is that whether it’s your first time flying or your 1000th, there’s something to learn, and I guarantee you’ll have an awesome time doing it. So what are you waiting for, come fly with us!
Jesse Orlando - Certified Flight Instructor
They told me I couldn’t fly… How’s your desk job, now? Since I joined the team in 2014, I’ve looked to the sky for guidance. A born and raised Bostonian, I found myself on the left coast in 2010, and decided winter wasn’t all that necessary. After establishing a home base, I needed a profession to match my epic move: Enter Jetpack America.
Before my time with jetpack, I pursued a career in youth development. Ive worked with summer camps across the US, taught snowboarding internationally, and currently supervise an aquatic recreation program for kids and teens. Since the introduction of the Tandem Jetpack, Ive been given the opportunity to provide kids with an amazing experience while soaring through the air like a superhero. Seamless fusion. What more could you need?
Ryan Naumann - Certified Flight Instructor
An East Coaster born and raised but lived in Los Angles almost half my life. Always a water baby and an adrenaline junkie, I fell in love with jetpacking after the first flight and wanted to be a part of the team, even if it meant hoofing it all the way down from LA!
You can find me behind the throttle on the weekends helping the world learn to fly. During the week, I spend my time on my “day job”, which is writing and animating, and I’ve been designing most of the newest Jetpack America graphics.

Andi Bishop - Instructor Assistant/Office Rep
Hi, I’m Andi! I am originally from Willow, Alaska. I moved to Nevada in December of 2010 and I absolutely love it here! I’m not yet finished with high school. I’d like to study sports medicine in college. I’m a pretty competitive person. I am an adrenaline junkie, I love riding dirt bikes and quads, playing sports and going on outdoor adventures, so of course I love working for Jetpack America! What really makes it awesome is that almost everyone is in a great mood when they come fly with us because they’re so excited to fly a Jetpack! I like meeting people from all over the world and learning about what kind of adventurous stuff different people have done! And on top of that I get to go to work in my bathing suit and fly a Jetpack, a job doesn’t get better than this! Bring your family and friends to fly a Jetpack with you, it’s such a great experience and I guarantee that you won’t regret it!
