Guy Flies Startup’s FAA Approved JB-9 Jetpack Around the Statue of Liberty

By: | November 13th, 2015

Here we go again with another jetpack demonstration sure to get everyone riled up.

A startup called Jetpack Aviation is home to the only FAA and US Coast Guard approved jetpack, the JB-9 jetpack.

In order to encourage investment and simply get people talking about the JB-9 jetpack, a guy, on behalf of the company, recently flew around the Statue of Liberty.

And let’s face it, there is no way a guy with a jetpack flying around the Statue of Liberty will not turn out to be a great marketing idea.

Jetpack Aviation believes the mini jet-turbine backpack has applications across search-and-rescue, law enforcement, disaster relief, and more.
