Jetpack Aviation



Jetpack Aviation, a company with operations based in Los Angeles CA, has created the world’s first true Jetpack – the JB-9. This compact Jetpack is powered by twin TurboJet engines. It is a true breakthrough in global aviation.

It is capable of vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), is extremely small and can easily be carried around by the pilot. It is very powerful, capable of rapidly lifting a 100kg (220lb) pilot thousands of feet into the air, at speeds of over 110km/h (68mph). It is fueled by kerosene and can remain airborne for up to 5 mins, allowing the pilot to travel a distance of approx. 15kms.



Launched in Nov 2015, the JB-9 is the result of more than 40 years of R&D, millions of dollars of funding, plus significant recent advancements in jet turbine technology.

The founders of JPA are two of the most experienced Jetpack entrepreneurs in the world. Nelson Tyler and David Mayman are two of only 14 people to ever fly a Rocketbelt, a hydrogen-peroxide powered Jetpack that had a flight time of only 30 seconds. Nelson developed the first civilian Rocketbelt and flew it in the 70’s. He then assisted David Mayman to build one which he learned to fly in 2010.

David and Nelson have the combined experience of over 450 jetpack flights between them,more than anyone else in the world.

The Company is currently working on the next version of the Jetpack, called the JB-10. Early testing indicates that it could achieve altitude of 10,000 feet and endurance of over 10 minutes. Significant safety features are also being developed including an emergency parachute, engine redundancy and an airbag.
