The Martin Jetpack is a disruptive technology, much like the helicopter was when first developed, with substantial capabilities and is able to be flown by a pilot or via remote control. The Jetpack can take off and land vertically and because of its small dimensions, it can operate in confined spaces such as close to or between buildings, near trees or in confined areas that other aircraft such as helicopters cannot access.images.gizmag.com
In 2013 it was thought that the jetpack could be available on the market as soon as 2014, and it was expected to sell for approximately US$150,000, with the initial production model aimed at military and first responder emergency crews, such as fire-fighters. A more basic model for the general public may be available by 2016.
