A water powered jet pack like the JetLev is not your standard fuel powered jet pack, has 215 horsepower and can fling you up to 28 feet in the air at up to 40MPH. Unlike conventional aircrafts and jetpacks, the JetLev water powered jet pack is an innovative concept greatly improves thrust-to-weight ratio by locating the propulsion engine, fuel and related systems on a separate vessel tethered behind the jetpack, and uses water as the jet propulsion medium because its high density can carry vast amounts of power at much lower velocities, and generate nozzle reaction forces much more effectively, than gases. The JETLEV-FLYER is now undergoing final testing and preparations for production. The first model with 155 HP engine will retail for 99,000 Euros. Production volume will be limited. Orders are expected to ship commencing June 2009 with an approximately three-month lead time.
