Strap in and take off!
Jetpacks have been part of science fiction and experimental aviation for decades, dating back to the space race. Zapata has taken that concept and made an ultra-stable hydroflyer that anyone can fly. The system allows the user to fly in a seated, secured position and is less dependent on the rider’s balance and dexterity to fly. The JetPack is so stable that, once in the air, a user can even let go of the controls and stay flying in a hovering position.
The black, angular forms are reminiscent of stealth technology and the five-point harness resembles something from a fighter jet, or race car. Transparent nozzles direct powerful jets of water and aluminum handle bars and nozzle rings elegantly complement plastic, foam and rubber components. Zapata’s signature red and black colors have never been so striking. This may be the world’s sexiest working jetpack.
