After 28 years of tinkering in his garden shed Glenn Martin has flown his jet pack to heights of 5000ft. Now Martin believes he’s poised to launch the first practical jet pack onto the world’s domestic and business markets.

After being greeted by a fanfare 3 years ago at the first launch of his jetpack, Glenn Martin was mocked for only flying 3 feet from the ground. “It just makes you more determined”, Glenn said soon after the disappointing first flight. Preparing for their first large-scale test flight, “we’ll play it by ear and see how it goes”, Glenn says nervously. But no need for nerves as the crash test dummy pilot reaches over 2000 feet in the jetpack before making a successful parachute landing. Could this soon be the new way to travel?
