Meet Our Team

Dean O'Malley - President of Jetpack America

Like many people out there, I’ve always been drawn to adventurous activities that allow me to get airborne, whether it’s jumping from a plane, snowboarding off a cliff or strapping a jetpack to my back. Through some amazing luck and good timing, I’ve been given the chance to live my dream of combining my love of flight with my business background. Since Jetpack America is still a very young company, I wear many hats, from Certified Flight Instructor to Social Media Rep to Marketing Manager, but my primary job is to help the world see just how much fun it is to fly a jetpack. My biggest satisfaction comes from the countless happy customers who come to me with positive feedback from their flights and rave reviews of all of our Jetpack America staff members.

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.

Kevin Harris - Flight Center Manager

What’s up, my name is Kevin Harris and I work for the best company in the world, Jetpack America! I was born in Las Vegas, NV. Coming from Las Vegas, there isn’t a lot of water here, so I’m sure you understand why I love working with water jetpacks!! I love all action sports, I grew up riding dirt bikes and still nothing compares to flying high on the jetpack! If you’re on the edge about coming and jetpacking, don’t think about it, just come out here and we will get you in the sky! If you’re in the Las Vegas area and you want to jump into a nice refreshing lake and fly a jetpack, give us a call!
