| Jetting Through The Skies: Jetman Dubai
By: Emory Brown
I wish I’d been in the room when God created the first eagle to soar the skies above us as we gaze in amazement. I wish that I could have flown in the X-1 as Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier in 1947. I wish Leonardo Da Vinci had perfected his single-man flying machine known as the ornithopter so that I could buy a Jetman Pack for about 1,000 bucks today and fly through the skies of the Windy City with a goal to put the Blue Angels to shame. But I can’t buy one yet, because they aren’t for sale anywhere. Don’t you worry, moms and dads — a Jetman Pack will be an item on your kids’ or grandkids’ Christmas lists soon.
So here we are! We’re taking manned flight to a whole new level… pun intended. Jetman Dubai is taking to the skies with a single-man aircraft. We’ve been raving about unmanned flight, like that involving drones, is some new thing. I think people forgot about remote-control planes. Hobbyists have been flying mini jets and bombers for decades now. Amazon had me interested with the delivery drones, but Jetman Dubai has just made me want to perform an Ocean’s 11 move and apprehend at least three or four packs for the squad. Everyone loves the scene in Transformers: Dark Moon when the army flies in their squirrel suits. It’s cool, but jet propulsion is where it’s at, buddy. Can you imagine the sales when this becomes mass market?
It’s going to be bananas! Helmets, apparel, toys, decals, and customization. Jetman Dubai is a dream come true to everyone who wants to be a pilot. Can you imagine the implications? I want to play a game of Jetman paintball. Guys are going to go nuts! We thought Angel from the X-Men was cool. The Jetman pack weighs 88 lbs and flies up to 170 knots, which are nautical miles. Translation for our novices: 195 miles per hour! That’s what’s up! You can date long-distance without a problem. Just fly into town and land in her backyard. Everyone’s happy. Actually, that’s a really good way to travel. Going solo through the skies beats the traffic for days. Rush hour will become like a fable told to children before bedtime. I know Google is working on the driverless car, but I think George Jetson will be one of our neighbors really soon, all because of our love for flying. Check it out for yourself at www.jetman.com.
